A serial killer is preying on the rich and influential, exposing their sexual proclivities, dismembering them and dumping them and their severed body parts in various locations around Thailand. The police officer on the case is not even close to finding the killer, but given an ultimatum to solve it in 15 days, Papa Chin (Chatchai Plenpanich) turns to the one man he doesn't want to use -- an imprisoned hitman named Tai (Arak Amornsupasiri), who thinks the killer is a friend of his from childhood. Tai let out of prison while his girlfriend Noi is kept under close watch by Chin. Tai heads back to his hometown to search for clues about where his old friend might be. As he recalls his childhood and friendship with the troubled boy Nut, the events of the present day crystallize until Tai is confronted with a shocking reality. Written by
Slice, came out here in Belgium very fast, even before it came out in the UK and US. We had that with other movies too so that's cool, isn't it? Let me say that again with Eastern flicks you have to understand their way of living. This is Thai and you know, or should know, that there are a lot of transsexuals living there. The sex industry lives on that kind of people as on other things, like pedophilia, we can't understand. The first part of the movie is gory and excellent filmed. But then the movie goes away from the blood and gore and turns into a movie about friendship. And it takes a real part of the flick, sometimes it get's a bit too much about the youth gang but it all has his purpose as you will see in the last quarter of the movie. And the last part is gory again. Some things I still doesn't understand like the red trunk but the movie works well. If you are into the brutal Eastern stuff, HK III, than this isn't a thing to watch but if you want a good storyline with a lot of blood, go watch it.
