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!
*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.
The Bad Things
*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.
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.
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.

Very similar to the same title of the movie with Nicholas Cage. Different in the ending and minor plots. Guy is a hitman who falls in love. Regrets what he's done. Etc.Published on January 16, 2014 by Barry A. Wrenick
I expected more action in the movie. The acting was sort of average and the story had no continuity. It wasn't fascinating.Published on October 5, 2013 by EmeraldLion
Typical hit man movie. Lots of shoot outs and action. The Characters are interesting enough to push it to 4 stars.Published on August 23, 2013 by Mr. Smith
Some movies aren't worth the time to watch. I generally like Thai movies, but this one was crap and not worth your time.Published on August 7, 2013 by Michael Cooper
This film was worth watching, but be prepared if you've already seen the version with Nicolas Cage. This version has lower production values, as you would expect, and you have to... Read morePublished on July 3, 2013 by George M.
