Product Description

Blu Ray pressing. As a hired assassin, Joe (Nicolas Cage) is the best in the business, but the years of stone-cold murder have taken their toll. Joe's plan to make this current assignment in Bangkok his last takes a wild turn when he violates one of the most important rules of the game. Now the hunter is the hunted in this hard-driving, action-packed thriller.

Amazon.com

An adrenaline-charged action thriller, Lionsgate's Bangkok Dangerous stars Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas, National Treasure) as "Joe," an anonymous assassin takes an unexpected turn when he travels to Thailand to complete a series of contract killings. Joe (Nicolas Cage), a remorseless hitman, is in Bangkok to execute four enemies of a ruthless crime boss named Surat. He hires Kong (Shahkrit Yamnarm), a street punk and pickpocket, to run errands for him with the intention of covering his tracks by killing him at the end of the assignment. Strangely, Joe, the ultimate lone wolf, finds himself mentoring the young man instead whilst simultaneously being drawn into a tentative romance with a local shop girl. As he falls further under the sway of Bangkok’s intoxicating beauty, Joe begins to question his isolated existence and let down his guard …just as Surat decides it’s time to clean house. Directors The Pang Brothers (The Eye) paint an explosive picture of the Bangkok underworld, illuminated with neon and saturated in violence. From a screenplay by Jason Richman, Bangkok Dangerous is based on the Pang Brothers’ wildly popular Hong Kong action film of the same name. Starring alongside Cage are Shahkrit Yamnarm (Belly of the Beast), Charlie Young (Seven Swords), Panward Hemmanee and Dom Hetrakul (Sniper 3). The film is produced by Jason Shuman, William Sherak, Nicolas Cage and Norm Golightly. Andrew Pfeffer, Derek Dauchy, Denis O’Sullivan and Ben Waisbren serve as the executive producers.

Bangkok Dangerous is a perfect movie for a post-summer release. It's got plenty of action, but it also has a great story, one that resonates more than some of the straight-ahead popcorn flicks that you find between May and August.

In the film, Nicolas Cage plays Joe, an otherwise anonymous hitman who provides laconic narration throughtout most of the film. His modus operandi is to setup on the outskirts of his target's location, find someone to act as a go-between with him and his client, and once the hit is completed, kill the go-between to tie up loose ends.

Joe decides that it's time to retire, so he takes one last contract - a series of four hits in Bangkok for a gangster named Surat. He finds a local street punk named Kong to act as his go-between, and proceeds with the hits. But he ends up caring for Kong, and also falls in love with a local pharmacist, which gives him even more pause about his line of work.

The film is a very competent action film, but also has its fair share of drama and emotion. It's not for the squeamish, and Cage's Joe isn't always a charmer, but you find yourself rooting for him, and by extension, rooting for this film.

Format: DVD
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Nicolas Cage plays a hit man named Joe
2. Poor Joe - he has to go through the whole movie with Cage's bad hairstyle
3. Joe has rules that make him the best in the hit man business
4. People depend on Joe to do his job, get paid, and disappear.
5. We often wish that 4. above would apply to Cage also
6. Joe heads to Bangkok for a four-hitter for a man named Surat.
7. One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble as he decides to break his own rules
8. Some rules aren't meant to be broken
9. Best ending for Cage in recent times.

This movie is about a hit man with an extremely high achievement rating. He owes his success to his personal set of rules, which don't allow for friends, relationships, loose ends or sticking around in the business for too long.

For some inexplicable reason, Joe decides to deviate from the rules while on duty in Bangkok, and finds himself in all sorts of trouble.

Cage does a pretty good job as the heroin-using, dour hit man, once you can get past what appears to be a dead animal splayed out on his head and down his neck. The real star however is the scene stealing Shahkrit Yamnarm as his disposable sidekick Kong.

Action wise the movie is okay, except for the scenes shot in blue and red lighting where you can't really see what's going on. The romantic parts are sweet at first, but the sight of Cage doing goo-goo eyes may be upsetting to some viewers. The plot requires as little thought as possible, as it doesn't really make much sense.

Recommended for fans of action-crime movies, and people with a morbid fascination for Cage's hairstyles.

Rated: 3.5 stars

If you like Nicholas Cage and some of the darker characters he has portrayed you will probably like this movie. It isn't as good as some of his others but I still enjoyed it. The movie is about the psyche of his character and his line of work. Good action intermixed with dialogue driven scenes as his character veers off his usual set of rules for getting the job done. The blu-ray picture quality was good, but not as clear and sharp as most. There is a fair amount of grain especially in the beginning but I suspect this is with intent. The audio quality was very good. Dialogue was clear and easily heard above the action. Surround use was effective in the action scenes. LFE was good but towards the end of the movie the bass really kicks in. For many this may be a watch once only movie.

Oxide Pang Chung and Danny Pang have directed a masterpiece with this film! I absolutely loved this movie. The cinematography in the movie is second to none. Be it neon lights, street traffic, or the daunting eyes of a beautiful woman, Bangkok Dangerous is a must-see movie. The camera angles, the sights and sounds of the city, and the cast of colorful characters were all wound together so amazingly that I could watch this movie over and over for years to come.

Shahkrit Yamnarm is EXCELLENT as Kong, the street thug recruited by Cage (Joe) to complete his missions while in Bangkok. He managed to work so well with Cage that the movie took on a whole subplot for me; are these guys going to work together again? I hope so!

This movie has to be added to any Nicolas Cage fan's collection. The plot is solid, the acting superb, the scenery is fantastic, and the viewer gets a chance to sit back and enjoy a James Bond type thriller without all the British accents.

Yes, the shoot-em-up scenes are a little long. Yes, it's hard to root for a bad guy. Yes, we've seen movies like this before. We've just never seen one that combines all the elements of good movie making into on solid movie the way Bangkok Dangerous does.

Do yourself a favor; buy Bangkok Dangerous! It's a movie you'll cherish for years to come.

And thanks to all the producers, writers, CASTING DIRECTORS, directors, and actors involved with this film. You did an OUTSTANDING job.

See ya next review!
