Bangkok Dangerous

Nicholas Cage gave justice to his role as an assassin in Bangkok Dangerous. In line with that, there are three points that must be realized upon watching the film. First, there is much violence shown in the movie but it was balanced with portraying the importance of conscience and love. Nicholas Cage played an anonymous assassin in the story. He went to Bangkok, Thailand to kill three enemies of his employer. As a hired killer, he has rules to follow, never show interest, do not ask questions, and erase any trace of the job-which he defied at the last part of the movie. Despite his mastery of killing individuals, he changed his mind at the last moment when he realized that he was made the target of other assassins already. Second, meeting a pick-pocketer named Kong is the turning point of the story from violence, to respect, friendship, and then to heroism. Kong was almost killed by the anonymous assassin, but when he pleaded for his life, he was saved from death. Later on, the assassin trained him for self-defense in case there will be problems in their mission. Only two targets were killed by the assassin because the third one was saved by the circumstances when Kong mentioned that such third target was a good man.

Finally, the irony of silence and violence is depicted in the film. It may be dangerous to be with a person who saw blood as a finalization of one's job, a girl fell for the assassin. Such girl was a deaf-mute but was able to give life of the dangerous and boring life of the assassin. Aside from the fact that Bangkok, Thailand is a beautiful country, there is one thing that makes it unforgettable: Bangkok Dangerous proved that love is still the ruling and ultimate feeling in this world amidst chaos and betrayal.

To be honest, I've never watched the movie. But now I'll make sure I'll browse for Bangkok Dangerous the next time the illegal DVD seller pops around. :D (No, I don't actually support piracy...)

Simply for the fact that in the movie, Love won over all.

My brother watched Bangkok Dangerous when we were having a vacation at Mount Sea Resorts in Cavite. He borrowed the DVD from a friend. I think he was able to watch five films of Nicholas Cage during our resort hopping in some Cavite resorts.
