Bangkok Dangerous








Director - Oxide & Danny Pang

Genre - Action/Crime/Thriller


Nic Cage's hair looks like boiled seaweed in this film. And just when we thought it couldn't get any worse, Cage's love interest turns out to be a mute pharmacist. Are there even such a thing? What's next, blind surgeons? Deaf psychiatrists? Jeez...let's move on to the story then. Cage plays an assassin who all of a sudden feels the need to reach out and break away from acute loneliness. He picks a thief and a mute woman for this purpose. Go figure. Anyway, if you're hankering for a 'The Killer' (with Chow Yun Fatt) type of movie, this might just pull your trigger. We thought Chow had way better hair though.

2 STARS!
