Trivia

The scene near the beginning of the movie where Chance blasts the doors open had to be shot twice. During the first take, an inefficient amount of explosives were used that didn't entirely blow the doors away, so primer cord was used for the final shot seen in the film. See more »

Goofs

During the final showdown, Angel picks up the 1911 that Chance put down on the ground before he began to fight Z. In the first two shots of her aiming the gun at Z, the slide is locked back, indicating that the gun is out of bullets. However somehow in the third shot she is able to fire the gun without ever having visibly chambered a new round. See more »

Low rent Bangkok Dangerous riff
26 September 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A US-made movie shot in Thailand, THE FIFTH COMMANDMENT seems to be something of a vanity piece for writer/star Rick Yune. Perhaps he was hoping to break out of the B-movie mould and become a modern-day Bruce Lee or something, I'm not sure, but this cheapjack rip-off of BANGKOK DANGEROUS was never going to do that for him.

In fact, the wooden Yune is one of the most uninteresting things about the whole production. Yune seems to do much better when he's either in support or playing the bad guy, as he has zero charisma as the protagonist here. Still, the supporting cast are better, and there are a couple of nice turns from both Bokeem Woodbine and Keith David, although neither actor gets a whole lot of screen time.

THE FIFTH COMMANDMENT is a typical B-movie action flick filled with shoot-outs and fight scenes, and as is usual the storyline comes second to the battles. Yune is a trained assassin who gets caught up in protecting a Jennifer Lopez-lookalike singer from a husband and wife assassin team (shades of MR & MRS SMITH). Sadly, the action is pretty poor, with dodgy choreography making things difficult to see, and there are only a couple of good fight scenes in the whole thing. It's clear to me that British director Jesse V. Johnson should stick to being a stuntman.
