All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

Even the twists late in the plot underwhelm.

Boccia (who also co-wrote with three others) displays a keen visual sensibility that, despite the film's low budget, gives it a palpable energy. It will be intriguing to see what he does next.

Overextends itself and tries its hand at set-pieces that are never more than adequate.

[The film is] content to merely celebrate, with wholly unwarranted glee, the ultimate triumph of a man who revels in his own awesomeness.

Audience Reviews for A Stranger In Paradise


★★ (out of four) Strictly routine, by-the-book, action thriller. Though it looks good and is filmmed with confidence, it still has a "cheap" feel to it. Plus, it lacks a really good villain. When things get hot and heavy for Josh Pratt (Colin Egglesfield) with his business in New York and he is accused of insider trading, he gets out of town on a vacation. He goes to Bangkok to see his brother (Stuart Townsend). Turns out his brother is in a mess as well with some thungs in the city. Pretty soon, poor Josh is being chased through the streets. Nice shots of Bangkok, but not much else to recommend. [img]http://content7.flixster.com/rtmovie/11/40/114021_gal.jpg[/img]
