8 March 2004 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

I never watch movies wanting to be disappointed, so despite not thinking very highly of the Pang brothers 'Bangkok Dangerous' and 'The Eye', I was hoping that 'One Take Only' would impress. Unfortunately it doesn't. Unlike the other two movies this time Oxide Pang Chun directs solo and his brother Danny only co-produces but I don't think that's got anything much to do with the lack of substance in the finished film. I'm no expert on Thai culture but I believe the movie had a lot of trouble with the local censors. As the movie has virtually no sex and the violence isn't that extreme I assume that "cutting edge" film in Thailand means something quite different that other Asian countries. It may be unfair to judge this movie by the standards of Japanese and Korean cinema, but when you've got amazing movies like 'Ichi The Killer', 'Sympathy For Mr Vengeance', and 'Battle Royale' around 'One Take Only' pales in comparison (And I won't even mention the astonishing 'Visitor Q'!!). Pawalit Mongkolpisit who played the deaf hitman in 'Bangkok Dangerous' stars as a small time drug runner who falls in love with a girl (Wanatchada Siwapornchai) who he discovers is a prostitute. A successful drug deal enables the two of them to get the taste of the good life, and all looks well, but then an even bigger score comes up and it proves to be too tempting to resist... I think we've all seen enough movies with similar scenarios to guess what might happen next. The two leads are cool enough and adequate actors but the script is so underwritten (even more so than 'Bangkok Dangerous') so there's very little to keep the viewer involved. I thought Mongkolpisist gave a better performance in 'Bangkok Dangerous', but then again his character in that movie was a bit more complex and sympathetic. I'd like to see this actor in a more substantial role, in say a Takashi Miike movie to see what he's really capable of. Having seen the brilliant Korean crime thriller 'Sympathy For Mr Vengeance' recently and having it fresh in my mind (it also incidentally like 'Bangkok Dangerous' features a deaf mute protagonist) I couldn't help but wish 'One Take Only' was much more ambitious and original. As it is, it's the weakest of the three Pang brothers movies I've seen to date, and I can't recommend it.
