December 8, 2008
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.
September 8, 2008
There's a charming restaurant scene, some nifty hand-to-hand combat and the cast is great looking. But pretty much all the things that made the original so original are filtered out of this un-original.
September 8, 2008
Bankgok Ridiculous is more like it.
September 8, 2008
It's never close to good, and it can't even get bad right.
September 8, 2008
[Bangkok Dangerous] adds to the sad realization that this once-vibrant and witty actor is completely controlled now by his inner teenager.
September 8, 2008
The sinking realization kicks in: These people are taking this nonsense seriously.
September 8, 2008
Bangkok Dangerous is bad without lifting a finger toward interesting.
September 8, 2008
This could have been good.
September 8, 2008
[Cage takes] the big bucks to star in slovenly, inert pulp of the sort no actor of his magnitude should be stooping to.
September 8, 2008
Directed by the Pang brothers (Danny and Oxide), Bangkok Dangerous is a halfhearted remake of their 1999 picture of the same name.
September 8, 2008
Despite a few sentimental flourishes, this programmer delivers for action fans.
September 5, 2008
Bangkok Dangerous pretends to have a lot on its mind. It moves slow as molasses and has the same general coloring.
September 5, 2008
There are some flashy sequences, which can't conceal the essential silliness and fatuity.
September 5, 2008
None of this compensates for the overfamiliar plotline, the underdeveloped side characters, the breakbeat soundtrack, the boring shootouts and a general air of overbaked silliness. But it helps.

One day someone will make a film about a lone-wolf killer who gets offered One Last Job, turns it down, retires rich and lives happily ever after.
