Bangkok Dangerous (2 stars)

comments

(18) 98min

Arriving in Bangkok to execute some contracts, hitman Joe (Nic Cage) quickly finds himself immersed in the city’s corrupt and dirty lifestyle. Hiring local henchman Kong (Shahkrit Yamnarm) to serve as a middleman, he goes about his brutal business with the ease of a professional. CGI-embellished but much less gritty remake of the Pang Brothers’ 1999 feature of the same name. Cage once again gets to wear ridiculous clothes and a terrible weave and turn on the laconic charm in this sanitised, tourist-friendly remake.

General release from Fri 5 Sep.
