Julian (Ryan Gosling), an American fugitive from justice, runs a boxing club in Bangkok as a front for his drug business. His mother (Kristin Scott Thomas), the head of a vast criminal organization, arrives from the US to collect the body of her favorite son, Billy. Julian’s brother has just been killed after having savagely murdered a young prostitute. Crazy with rage and thirsty for vengeance she demands the heads of the murderers from Julian. But first, Julian must confront Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm), a mysterious retired policeman - and figurehead of a divine justice - who has resolved to scourge the corrupt underworld of brothels and fight clubs.

I was hoping for the best and wanted to love it. 10 minutes in, I wasn't digging it. The next 20 minutes were better but then it got weird again. This continued throughout the film and with so many different cuts (from real life to imagination?) it's not really clear whats going on. There were some definite "wow" moments when you find out more details.. but after watching it, trying to understand it, and then reading other explanations of it.. It just felt like it was trying too hard to be edgy and cool and stylish.. and very much a "David Lynch" movie.
I wanted to like it, and I did like parts of it... but in the end, it just didn't pull it off like I wish it had been able to.
If you're going in expecting to see another Drive, then you are going to have a very bad time, this is a completely different kind of movie and isn't anywhere as near as accessibly. But if you enjoy movies that are very stylized, go at their own pace and tell some of the story through what some may consider unconventional means, then give this movie a shot.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Ryan Gosling's tried and tested formula of saying little and staring into space reacting to events around him, quickly becomes tiresome and ultimately contributes to what becomes an irritating movie.
The script is off, disjointed and in place unconvincing. Whilst the set designs are well done, the overall sense if that there is too much style at the expense of everything else. Kristen Thomas' lines and character aren't convincing and it's not clear what the themes are here, never mind what the movie has to say.
The best character in the move is the police chief who is really the most entertaining character in the film.
Overall I found this quite a frustrating movie to watch, as if the director had some half baked ideas that weren't fully realised.
This was an 18 rated and has violence BUT the rest is just staring, creeping about and would probably classed as a genre or film noir, found it boring but stuck with it, now regretted.
