Incredibly bad, but the action is decent
14 February 2012 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

Four Europeans vacationing in Bangkok get indebted to the mob. To pay that debt they decide to kidnap the teenage daughter of a rich man. That backfires when they find out the rich man was going to kill his daughter anyway. Now he intends to pin it on them. This movie is pretty freaking awful. The plot makes little sense, the four heroes are just complete douchebags (they're only the tiniest bit less evil than the picture's villain), and not a single performer in the film can act worth a damn. However, it has one pretty big advantage that raises it above what would otherwise have been one of the worst movies ever made: good action sequences. Not great ones, mind you (they're edited a bit too rapidly, although for the most part you can tell what's happening), but they're fun and exciting. About the whole last third of the movie is made up of action, and it becomes quite watchable for a good half hour. Certainly not much to recommend, but I've seen worse.
