Editorial Reviews

Kong, a professional killer, has been mute since childhood. He plies the city's bitterest streets, with silence his only response to the killings and assassinations he performs. He is deadly. He is numb. He enacts his grisly tasks with a sociopathic coldness -his steady, impersonal revenge on the world. Ultimately, the chance for his transformation (and redemption) finally arrives in the form of a girl able to provide the only tenderness and warmth he's ever known. It could save him. It could kill him. A gritty story, the film is a powerful thriller, with strong emphasis on style, suave cutting techniques, effects, and urbane production values. Fast-paced, bloody and exciting, this film shows Bangkok's darker worlds, and the glimmer of hope possible in the dimmest of lives. It's a film about cities, a film about death. With its high-speed chases, its gunfire and action, its intensity, Bangkok Dangerous is a killer.

Bangkok Dangerous is a cool blast of daring and violent cinema that will have you enjoying every moment of its ultra-low budget "deaf"-defing trickery. The premise is simple - a dumb Thai hitman does not suffer from gun recoil because he does not hear the sound of his own gunfire and so has deadly accurate aim. He goes around Thailand knocking off criminals and crimelords but then has the fatal error of getting mixed up in some nasty business where innocent and important political people are killed. In the background there is the story of his brother assassin who is temporarily out of a job and a girl who works in the local chemist that he falls for.
You have to see it for the camera work and editing and violent special effects. It really does dazzle and there is lots of techno in the soundtrack. To be honest this little gem from Thailand simply mashes most Hollywood action flicks. Great!

Format: DVD
After reading the reviews and seeing the sound bites of reviewers in the DVD package, I set forth to buy Bangkok Dangerous. I was expecting a "hyperkinetic" movie, as one critic put it and a cinematic style that's "similar to John Woo and Quentin Tarantino". I got neither. What I got is a languidly paced film about a deaf-mute hitman eager to redeem himself for a pretty young pharmacist's love. Actually, that's the most interesting part of the movie, how the hitman communicates his love to Fon, the pharmacist. The gunplay, action, the pacing and the camera techniques are nowhere near what critics are comparing it to. There's no gimmicky non-linear storytelling. No "kewl" camera work. No "hip" editing. It is not like Tsui Hark's Time & Tide with its visually-stunning camera work and dense storytelling, instead it is more akin to Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai. Quiet, a little profound. The story is refreshingly simple but it kind of drags on in the middle, plodding to the point of predictable, it makes you wish it has one of those twists Thai TV commercials are known for in global advertising awards shows. All in all, Bangkok Dangerous is a refreshing film to see amidst the noisy action films of Hollywood and Hong Kong. But don't get misled by what's on the cover.

The Good Things
*The photography is generally okay. It presents some imagery that is really fantastic. Other times, it seems a bit dull. All around, it's interesting.
*Sets are used quite effectively. Costumes and props are okay.
*The story is not bad. It's not wholly engaging, but not too boring either.
*Characters are interesting. Acting is great for the most part.
*There is some touching romance in there.
*Good music.

The Bad Things
*No extras.
*No English dubbing. In fact, the only language option is Thai with English subtitles (I'm sure the subtitles can be turned on or off if you want). It might have French subtitles too, but I don't remember now.
*Not for the squeamish; contains bloody violence.
*Has one or two slow parts.

The Questionable Things
*Video and sound quality are okay. The video is in fullscreen only, and seems pretty clear and clean, but also seems a little washed-out and has some graininess to it. Most of the voices are clear, but the sound didn't really blow me away or anything.

Most Thai movies I've seen have been quite thrilling and awesome, but this one didn't seem all that great to me. It has an interesting premise, some interesting photography, and some good characters/acting, but after a while, I lost interest. I think the quality of the film seems to be quite low-budget, and only added to the feeling that I was watching something substandard. If you can overcome these flaws, you might find it awesome. Otherwise, rent it first; for any action fan, it's worthwhile at least once.

Format: DVD
Bangko Dangerous played a little too much like Kar Wai's Fallen Angels(deaf/mute hitman with somewhat arrested developement, similar music video like cinematography, etc) but was enjoyable none the less.
A deaf hitman goes about killing for pay, but stumbles on to a young girl(Premsinee Ratanasophacan) who sees past his handicap and the two fall for each other. Then he takes work home with him, showing the young girl his violent side(aimed at some confronting punks, not her) and coupled with the death of his friend and coworker, his seemingly intact world starts to fall apart.
I won't go on any further and spoil the film for you, but none of it's unexpected or totally new. Still, I don't regret watching the film and wouldn't mind purchasing the DVD simply because, when viewed just as a fim and not some new hope or whatever, it's a good movie.
Definately worth a rent and if you love movies like Leon, Ghost Dog or Fallen Angels, you might want to pick this one up.

This movie was qute the surprize. The deaf mute hitman was some one you came to like and feel sorry for. The leading actor only spoke in the end but you really were able to connect with him and actually like him. The move is violent but not over the top. It is subtitled but you really do not need to understand most of the dialog to follow it. I really enjoyed it and the acting was quite good and the plot was different. I think this version is far better than the English re-make with Nicolas Cage.

So if you like action movies with a bit of a love story angle and dont mind doing a little reading you will most likely enjoy it. The sound trac is quite good as well.
