Movie Review of Bangkok Dangerous

Bangkok Dangerous - 5.5/10
Directed by Pang Brothers
Cast - Nicholas Cage, Charlie Yeung,Shahkrit Yamnarm,Panward Hemmanee

Plot Summary

Review
The Pang brothers did an awesome horror movie called The Eye which was scary.They even made it into a trilogy and the last being a horror comedy which in my opinion was actually funny as hell.Re-cycle was interesting with good graphic.To be honest I have not watched the original Thai version but I'm pretty sure it would be better than the Hollywood version.Nicholas Cage is the hero in this movie.This guy has his ups but more downs and this is one of his many downs.His toupee has more reactions than him.The supporting cast wasn't so bad.but I wished there was a much more convincing villain for this movie.The Thai actresses were not so bad as well.One is mute which I guess is a good thing because you wouldn't be hearing any English in very thick Thai accent cause you definitely need subtitles for that.
The direction for this movie was rather mediocre,according to the Pang brothers standards.They have an eye for camera works and direction in the other movies but this one was rather disappointing.Editing was also so so in this movie.Pretty much this is a shit movie if you are not into these kinda genres.But if you like all those assassin movies,then go ahead give it a try.Just don't get let down,by Nicholas Cage's acting or his ridiculous looking toupee.

Highly unlikely this is available in the cinemas right now but worth renting the DVD and watching.
