Bangkok Dangerous review:

Deaf since childhood (a home movie-style flashback shows how he lost his hearing in a fight), Kong still suffers acute migraines, only partly alleviated by his job as a hitman in Bangkok. Between hits he shyly dates the girl from the drugstore who sells him painkillers – taking her, of course, to see a silent movie. By the time she discovers what he does, he’s begun to realise that not all his victims are bad guys. A largely generic script gets a phenomenal treatment. There’s an amazing level of visual invention, garnished with creative CGI effects, and entire reels go by without dialogue. The twin brother directors (HK Chinese, but Oxide works in Bangkok) have come up with at least two potential genre classic sequences: a hit on a HK subway train, and another in a Japanese restaurant in Bangkok, where Kong is accompanied by the ghost of his late colleague. Seriously impressive.

  2. Nick Cage seems to have a long hair cycle… one in about every three movies – ConAir, Next, etc.
