While the film includes several exciting, creatively shot action scenes, the drama is otherwise so shopworn that the violent climax is a relief.
October 18, 2008
Tediously monotonous.
September 11, 2008
Cage is believable as the brooding lone-wolf gunman, but the "hit man screwing himself by growing a conscience on his final kill" ploy needs to be put down for good.
September 10, 2008
This is as stale as Tuesday's Phad Thai, from its exhausted mythos of the surgically efficient, omnipotent hit man to the training scenes in which Joe explains the trade to the new guy, to the inevitable betrayals of the third act.
September 8, 2008
Just another cycle of bombast and boredom.
September 8, 2008
Awatchable, but dull action flick with not enough body count to satisfy the average mixed martial arts fanboy.
October 15, 2012
A promising film about a hit man that ultimately gets wacked because its star isn't suited for the role at all.
October 14, 2012
At six foot plus, with his hair-plug mullet and his ice-white teeth, Cage sticks out like a sore thumb among the tiny Thai citizens, making for the most conspicuous hitman since Agent 47 rocked the bald head 'n' barcode combination.

This has the look of a cheap quickie foreign film, not unlike a Hong Kong action film.

Between all the dates and dinners, Bangkok almost ends up being as less thriller and more travelogue; by the hour mark, there are literally more gulps than gunshots.
January 1, 2009
How do you borrow elements of The Transporter, The Karate Kid and Mission Impossible and end up with an unwatchable mess like this?
December 29, 2008
A toxic blend of hitman midlife crisis, homicidal existential angst and a little surprise sex tourism on the side, this arty assassin fare is held together by sheer force of personality grim reaper guru Cage, no matter how cranky the guy can be.
November 20, 2008
A by-the-numbers retread that's ill-conceived as an action vehicle for Cage.
November 8, 2008
o Nicolas Cage na periferei tis ektos eleghoy sapoynoperikes toy moytes kai ti geloia malloyra toy, se ena pompodi poiitikistiko ahtarma, poy bromaei ap' opoy ki an ton piaseis
October 18, 2008
[Cage is] funless, scowly, grim, and steroidally impervious to the fleshy and salacious good cheer that surrounds him.
October 18, 2008
The burnt out assassin shtick is old and tired.
September 27, 2008
The film isn't overtly heavy-handed in its violence, but it doesn't provoke enough surprises to keep the mind from drifting -- a poison pill for an action film.
September 17, 2008
A perfectly uninvolving tale of errors acknowledged and manhood proved.
September 16, 2008
It's garbage. Cage better be careful. If he keeps this up, he'll wind up just like Val Kilmer doing straight to DVD junk.
