Bangkok Dangerous

Based on the original film, Bangkok Dangerous, this Hollywood remake is actually an impressive version compared to the original Thai movie and with Nicolas Cage as the star billing, you immediately know that you are in for a treat and this film is is no exception to that rule.

Directed by the original brothers of the original, the Pang brothers, this is definitely heavily orientated with action and features the classic story about a man trying to leave the dangerous world that he has created

For those who have seen the original movie, myself included, the only noticeable different is that the main character is from American and not Thai plus the story is a little stronger and more refined than the original.

The itself story revolves around Joe (Cage), a mercenary who is about to retire after his last big hit but as fate would dictate, things don't always go according to plan. Although the movie is oozing with B-grade goodness, Cage adds to the ambience of the film with his voice over that only adds to the gritty storyline.

With years of experience as a mercenary, his biggest flaw was to ignore his own rules and he eventually winds up with a beautiful pharmacy worker called Fon (Charlie Yeung) after sharing a close moment together.

Of course, Joe's past always catches up with him as the viewer is taken on a true rollercoaster ride that mirrors some great Eastern and Western movies such as the Transporter. Although the movie is oozing with action, the scenes are quite impressive which are definitely the highlights of this movie and even though the plot is oozing with clichés and predictability, seeing Cage kick ass in this exotic locale is always an enjoyable experience.

Definitely for those looking for a mindless action movie!
