"Bangkok Dangerous" is, in the grand scheme of cinema, a dinky little action-drama flick. However, given what went into it, the film delivers more, pound for pound, than most films from big name action auteurs. The film tells a gritty simple story of a deaf-mute street punk hitman who shares brief moments of happiness with a lovely innocent and, unable to reconcile the divergent dichotomy, comes to an inescapable last hit. Wrought from heavy stylistics with excellent music and camera work; a scant script; and an apparently limited budget, "BD" is a paradigm of efficiency for neophyte indie auteurs who seem to err most often by trying to say too much with too little. A good watch for action junkies who can hang in there as the film looks cheap in the beginning and the talent behind the craft is not immediately apparent. (B+)
