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.

Customer Reviews

It's not wholly engaging, but not too boring either.

Like its deaf protagnoist, 'Bangkok Dangerous' tries to find a way to communicate beyond language.

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.

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.

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.

I expected more action in the movie. The acting was sort of average and the story had no continuity. It wasn't fascinating.

Typical hit man movie. Lots of shoot outs and action. The Characters are interesting enough to push it to 4 stars.

Some movies aren't worth the time to watch. I generally like Thai movies, but this one was crap and not worth your time.

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 contend with the language issue. Despite that, it's worth watching.
