Bangkok Dangerous – Movie Review

Bangkok Dangerous stars Nicolas Cage as an assassin who is about to give up the job but wants to do 4 more kills all in Bangkok before he does.  At the very beginning of the movie he says you need to know when to get out, as soon as you think about getting out, you get out.  Then he proceeds to think about getting out and instead takes on 4 more kills.  Cage tries (I don’t think he has a choice really) to play the most wooden, uncaring assassin he could think of and it just seems fake the entire time.  Suddenly he starts to fall for a deaf Thai girl who doesn’t understand english, and he has second thoughts about everything.  It’s an expected turn in a movie like this but doesn’t feel real at all.

Summary: Skip this movie and watch The Jackal or Leon (The Professional) instead.
