Seven years after the original
was released, twin brothers Oxide and Danny Pang remade it in English - presumably for the "can't stand subtitles" set. Looking like Ken Dodd's leaner younger brother, Nicolas Cage plays it mean and moody as Joe, a sniper-assassin who is hired to carry out a number of hits in Bangkok. Joe lives and works by four intractable rules, most of which he manages to break in the film's opening scenes. Small wonder, then, that his Thai employers turn skittish and eventually try to do the dirty on him. Slickly made and with a few decent action scenes, this hitman thriller has a clinically efficient film at its core. Unfortunately, the Pangs see fit to overdo things with a laughable grandiosity reminiscent of John Woo at his most pompous. The first
was a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately, this remake smells a bit off.
A hitman travels to Thailand to kill four people, only to find his resolve slipping as he becomes emotionally attached to the people he meets during his mission. However, as he begins to let down his guard, his employer plans to kill him once his work is done. Remake of the Thai action thriller, starring Nicolas Cage, Shahkrit Yamnarm and Panward Hemmanee.
