Somchai (Pierre Png), a debt-ridden gambling addict, goes to the top of a building to commit suicide and finds a young woman, Go-go (Arisara Wongchalee), standing on the ledge ready to do the same. Rather than going through with the plans for death, the two talk and decide that there's nothing they can't do, since they had decided to die. So they embark on a crime spree, starting out by eating in a restaurant and not paying the bill, then stealing a car and crashing it for fun. They rob a convenience store, and are pursued by the police, and the gangsters Somchai pursue the couple as well.Written by
I suppose I would never have chosen the movie by the cover, but there was Pang mentioned and I thought... Hey, nothing to lose. As it turned out, Danny Pang had a lot to lose. The Eye was too high a standard and this one stays behind. Though there is a lot on the good side. The movie is definite eye candy, MTV aesthetics with a good cut can still work out nice, the score is great, the story itself is OK for a not-so-shallow action flick and main actress Fresh is a pulse raiser. Too bad that most of these points are put under the lid by 80%-cheesy dialogue, bad actors on all supporting parts, a pale main actor (though not as bad as the supporting cast) and a horrible narrating rhythm that not only takes the drive out of the first 2/3s of the movie but almost kills the story as a whole. Still some of the scenes are great. So as long as you can stand the boring parts and just want to see some great pictures (and a hot actress :-) ), it still is enjoyable. For Mr Pang, this is nice try, but no banana. Maybe next time. Still I'm looking forward to the next one.
