Bad movie, great action, 21 July 2013
Author: Leofwine_draca from United Kingdom

Forget the acting – it's horrible. Forget the direction – it's perfunctory at best. Forget the story – it's non-existent, and so embarrassingly simplistic that a child probably came up with it. Forget the humour – it's as dumb as it comes.

Embrace the action – for action is what BANGKOK ADRENALINE is all about, and as a fluid, action-packed movie, it works pretty well. It's essentially one lengthy chase film, with a mixed bunch of western actors finding themselves beset on all sides by various criminal gangs, henchmen, mafia bosses and general corrupt people, and having to use their impressive martial arts ability to fend the bad guys off. There's no more to it than that, but for what it does, BANGKOK ADRENALINE works well.

Thai producers have obviously twigged that there's a demand in the west for the kind of action-heavy product that Tony Jaa popularised back in the day, because they've made this film with western actors and shot it largely in English. Personally, I wish they'd stuck with Thai actors, because the one thing you quickly notice when watching Asian movies is that the western actors always stick out like sore thumbs and also give the worst performances; this film is no exception.

Of the group, only Conan Stevens makes an impressive as a hulking giant of a guy, but as far as I can remember, he only gets a single fight scene. I know the Thais love these massive muscle-bound characters – who can forget Nathan Jones in WARRIOR KING, after all? – and Stevens needs more screen time. Instead he's bypassed in favour of the bland younger actors with the aforementioned sucky acting abilities.

Still, the action holds up and that's what counts for martial arts fans. The fights are mixed and widespread, throwing in stunts, massive brawls and a few one-on-one showdowns; the martial arts choreography is excellent, and there's a long-running bit of free-running thrown into the mix to keep things moving merrily along. BANGKOK ADRENALINE is certainly a step up from the disappointing and ultra low budget BANGKOK KNOCKOUT, and it makes me look forward to Tony Jaa's return to the big screen all the more…
