Consensus: With murky cinematography, a meandering pace, a dull storyline, and rather wooden performances, The Pang Brothers' Hollywood remake of Bangkok Dangerous is unsuccessful.

Joshua Katzman
Chicago Reader

While the film includes several exciting, creatively shot action scenes, the drama is otherwise so shopworn that the violent climax is a relief.

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.

A promising film about a hit man that ultimately gets wacked because its star isn't suited for the role at all.

Tediously monotonous.

Awatchable, but dull action flick with not enough body count to satisfy the average mixed martial arts fanboy.

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.

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.

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.

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

Oscar winner Nicholas Cage in a garbage action film that's as cliched as they come. Joe (Cage) is an assassin. He has his own code and rules that he never… More
