Editorial Reviews

Mercenary Curtie Church (Djimon Hounsou, ''Blood Diamond'') is hired to take out a notorious Thai sex-trafficking gang by a father's whose daughter was kidnapped and murdered by the gang. With the help of a ruthless weapons dealer (Kevin Bacon, ''Mystic River''), Church finds the men he is hired to kill. But what starts as a paying job turns into an outright war between two rival gangs, and Church finds himself caught between the corrupt world that surrounds him and the truth behind the man who hired him.

Customer Reviews

Kevin Bacon with an accent!
E. Crossman
There are minor twists as people and alliances are not quite what they seem, with one major twist at the end I admit I didn't see coming.
The Movie Guy
This is a great action movie.

I picked up an early copy of this from my local DVD vendor. Kevin Bacon and Djimon Hounsou are obviously the big draw here.
Straight to DVD fair is getting better and better as of late, and this one is no exception. The DVD is a bare bones affair no bells and whistles, but the direction, cinematography, sound and foley work is all top notch, and the acting is stellar! The story is of Hounsou who it's alluded to as being a USA government agent who is on a holiday in Bangkok and moonlighting as a hired gun. He is hired by a desperate father to avenge his daughter, and all hell breaks loose. Hounsou is a strong lead, and dominates the screen. Kevin Bacon plays an old acquaintance of Djimon's character and a weapons dealer in Bangkok, a very solid supporting role to say the least. And Jirantanin Pitakporntrakul, in her debut role is creepy and radiant simultaneously. Prachya Pinkaew, whom I've been a big fan of since his film "CHOCOLATE" has done it again providing his fans with the best in fight choreography and fun fast paced action sequences.
The story though not completely original has enough original aspects to it to keep you wrapped in it's threads for the thrill ride that this movie is. White Elephant is a white knuckled thrill ride that is action packed and bloody as hell. It's not for the faint of heart..but hits the spot for all of us action fans...and is an awesome addition to Prachya Pinkaew's filmography and another step toward cinematic immortality for this growing and very active director.

Can you save someone by using a gun? When mercenary Curtie Church (Hounsou) is hired to take out the head of a human trafficking ring he finds himself not sure who's side he is on. When a girl named Meg finds him, he has another reason to stop the ring. This is a great action movie. Guy hires guy to kill someone, guy gets guns, starts killing...for an hour and a half. If you like movies with intricate plot lines and in-depth character development, this is not it. If you like non stop action, guns and fighting, this is the movie for you. The acting is actually pretty good, led by Djimon Hounsou and Kevin Bacon, but the action is what drives the movie. Very few action movies have a twist at the end that makes you want to re-watch right away to see if you can catch the moments that lead up to the twist, this is one of them. I'd be surprised if anyone can predict the twist to this. Very entertaining action movie that is worth watching. I give it a B+.

Would I watch again? - Yes I would to see if I can catch the twist moments I missed.

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By The Movie Guy on April 25, 2011
Format: DVD
In the movie a white elephant is given by one rival gang to another as a peace offering. In Siam, kings would offer them as gifts to someone who was obnoxious so they would go broke attempting the up keep. The movie deals with the child prostitution trafficking in Thailand as a background, but does very little to expose the horrors, but rather concentrates on killing.

A man hires Djmon Hounsou to find his abducted daughter working somewhere in a Thai brothel. He also has a bounty for every bad guy that is killed. Djmon contacts Kevin Bacon, now with a British accent, in order to obtain guns. Bacon runs a legit brothel and formally worked with Djmon. Using the weapons, Hounsou is able to start a war between two rival gangs. The head count increases.

During his campaign, a girl joins up with him and helps him with some spiritual guidance, as well as a look out. There are minor twists as people and alliances are not quite what they seem, with one major twist at the end I admit I didn't see coming.

There is a missed opportunity in this film for a little humor. Kevin Bacon collects guns used in movies. What they should have mentioned were guns used specifically in Bacon movies. They did not.

Hounsou play a stone cold killer who wants to make things right while getting paid. His acting ability is better than the Rock, but below that of Van Diesel. A lot of shooting and killing. Nudity, f-bomb, and Bacon with a British accent. 3 1/2 stars.

Purposefully will not go into any details only that this is a "must see" if you like consistent action and witnessing (through the camera lens) good triumph over evil. I've seen it (overly pleased) and am in the process of purchasing blue-ray copy as soon as I complete my recommendation.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 9, 2013
Format: DVD
Human trafficking and child prostitution are the focal points of this very dark, noisy, brutally frank film, and if those preliminary adjectives don't deter then there are a few reasons to watch this direct to DVD film, mainly the contribution of producer/star Djimon Hounsou. Thai director Prachya Pinkaew holds this slaughter of the bad guys together fairly well and the minimal script by Kevin Bernhardt attempts to infuse the bitter story with a dollop of mysticism (the title is the clue). The acting by a very large cast of Thai actors is basically relegated to shooting and getting shot so there isn't a lot of character development possible.

The setting is Bangkok where Curtie Church (Djimon Hounsou) who is a prolific professional assassin who has accumulating a sizable cash reserve from his trade. His impressive store of weapons (a larger cash of bizarre guns has never been so visible!) is provided by his English arms dealer Jimmy (Kevin Bacon). Curtie wishes to retire from his sordid role and is on his last assignment when he is joined by a strange and beautiful young girl name Mae (Jirantanin Pitakporntrakul). During the completion of his final score, Curtie is annoyed by Mae who wonders why the assassin is killing in the first place. Curtie admits it is for the money, but the somewhat ethereal Mae informs him that other evil men need his expertise and brand of justice: Curtie becomes involved in a mission to stop the trafficking of child prostitutes by eliminating those who deal in human flesh.

For the most part the film is about killing and is a constant stream of assassinations by a variety to weapons and chases.
