Critic Reviews for Bangkok Dangerous
An audiovisually complex drama that's better than slick, though it feels pointless-another homage to a kind of filmmaking that's had more than its share.
Bangkok Dangerous mixes mindless violence, sappy romance, and philosophical pretentiousness. On the whole, it does the first better than the other two.
Audience Reviews for Bangkok Dangerous
Action thriller about the exploits of a death mute hitman working for a seedy Thai gangster. Despite the interesting disability the story doesn't herald too many surprises. But the film has enough style, heart and bloody gun-play to distinguish itself among other contract-killer flicks out there and it's head and shoulders above many of them. Well worth checking out!
Magnificent Thailand action movie I ever seen with a deaf mute assassin. The imagery is beautiful and imaginative, excellent editing and vibrant colors.
The cast was good, especially Pavarit Mongkolpisit playing Kong, the deaf assassin, he did a fantastic job, showing a full range of emotion without uttering a word. That does make 100% sense to know about a deaf person who could learn experiences and everything to become smart and professional one, not dumb in this film, just like me and other Deafies. I understood what Kong was doing in the scenes including communicating with a beautiful girl and eyes open on gunfights.
The Pang brothers manage to use fancy editing, bright neon lights, and a memorable soundtrack without once coming off as pretentious. Kong is a wonderful protagonist, and conveys heart felt emotions despite the inability to speak. His final attempt at reading out what he wrote in a letter to his beloved Fon is incredibly moving and very sad. Great action and hard hitting drama.
