Disappointing cult comedy
15 August 2003 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

Killer Tattoo comes burdened with extravagant praise, but this Thai film often seems just a few steps behind the goofy HK actioners it attempts to emulate.

When a career criminal is released from prison, he's asked to orchestrate the killing of a high ranking politico. He pulls together a strange crew to help him out: a pill-popping druggie, a droopy- eyed longhair, and a guy who thinks he's Elvis, and refuses to speak Thai. It's a promising setup, but most of the intentional jokes fall flat, while the unintentional ones (including some pointed jibes at the U.S.) pack more bite. There are gunfights galore, but they're orchestrated without much snap or style, and the frequent John Woo--like intrusions of melodrama tend to slow down the action.

Killer Tattoo is certainly offbeat, but being offbeat isn't enough to inject spunk into this poorly paced actioner.
