See Some Hard-hitting Action In The BANGKOK REVENGE Trailer!
Soon to be released in North America is a new Thai action film called Bangkok Revenge, which is directed by Jean-Marc Minéo and stars Jon Foo from Tom Yum Goong, Caroline Ducey and Kowitch Wathana. Like many action films that have come out of Thailand, this one seems to showcase plenty of impressive stunts and hard-hitting action. Check out the trailer below. 

Synopsis (via China Lion): Manit, a boy of ten years witnessed the murder of his parents. Unrelenting, the killers decide to eliminate it. Shot in the head, the child survives miraculously from his injuries, but finds himself struck by ataraxia. The damage to his brain took away any emotion. Saved from certain death by an old martial arts master, Manit, 20 years later becomes a real war machine, returns to the place of his childhood. Justice is going to fall, and men will die.

The last Thai martial arts film I enjoyed was Raging Phoenix. Sanctuary was bland, Bangkok Adrenaline was just a series of stunts with no rhythm or flow, and BKO suffered the same problem in spades.

It was like watching a Jet Li movie where instead of great choreography, it's just him showing off and hurting himself.

I think John Foo is great, and this movie looks to have more film making technique than the previous 3. I hope it turns out well. 25, 2012 8:24 PM

You should check out "Muay Thai Giant". That one was a pleasant surprise. It's more kid-friendly and less gritty than other Thai MA films, and originally I only bothered to watch it because it came on Netflix instant view, but it was a lot more fun than I expected, and exceedingly well executed. The action in the film is much better than the action in Sanctuary or Bangkok Andrenaline, though it falls short of the awesomeness of Raging Phoenix. Still the finale has some truly jaw-dropping moments and watching a bunch of giant wrestler-types do a major three-way MA style fight was a nice fresh experience in regards to fight choreography, which we get a lot of these days.

That all said, I'm seriously looking forward to this new John Foo flick.

Ah, yes. I saw Muay Thai Giant. It was OK. Nathan Jones was horrible in the WWE, but he does alright in the movies. Although despite the title, what Jones was doing did not look like Muay Thai. I thought Sasisa Jindamanee stole the show with her impressive skills and wish she would do better martial arts films than Force of Five. (Ugh) 28, 2012 7:15 PM

Yay! More bland Thai shit. Well done, Twitch.

Jon Foo was great in Tekken and Tom Yum Goong, so hopefully this movie will help him get more recognition as a martial arts actor.
