Kong (Pawalit Mongkolpisit), a deaf-mute assassin, lives a life of quiet desperation working for Bangkok mobsters. Despite his disability, Kong's mentor, Jo (Pisek Intrakanchit), trains him to be an unfeeling killing machine. But after a brutal hit abroad, Kong returns and falls in love with young pharmacy clerk Fon (Premsinee Ratanasopha). His chance for redemption, however, is threatened when Jo's girlfriend, Aom (Patharawarin Timkul), is raped and Kong risks everything for revenge.

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (18)

  • 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.

    September 19, 2008 | Full Review…
  • Enjoyable in an undemanding way, and with a few interesting flourishes.

  • The Pangs' film is leavened with charming pathos and romance. This is a sure-footed, watchable film that lingers in the mind.

  • Expect the Pang brothers receive a call from a Hollywood studio soon.

Audience Reviews for Bangkok Dangerous

  • May 29, 2011
    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!

    This is a hard movie to describe. There's the ultimate hitman formula/story everyone knows, there's the cheezy music, the same course of action, lame special effects. On the other hand, the style of the film, with its beat and overall B-Movie style, gives it an extra push, as well as the well-delivered performances and overall humanity.

    much faster paced than the pang brothers eye. it's simple, original and enjoyable

    Gritty depiction of a handful of amorals make me wonder "What's the point of this film??" Calling the story threadbare is an insult to fishnet stockings. Let's see how many words it takes to describe: Deaf/mute assassin meets girl, then avenges mentor and a friend. Seriously, that's the entire 100 minutes in an eleven word nutshell. The scenes of killing (and there are many, but often brief) would appeal only to people who watch those wretched "World's Wildest Drivers" TV shows. The only point of interest is that the director does have an interesting style and offers some original impressionistic images. Unfortunately, given the non-story, he feels the need to shoot the entire film in an arty, crazy-angled manner to distract from the gaping absence of plot. My advice: skip it. There's a good chance the American version represents an improvement.
