Storyline

Joe is a professional hit man who picks someone off the street to do his errands, and after he is finished kills that person. His next assignment takes him to Bangkok, and as usual, he finds a street-wise guy named Kong to help him. After Kong has a close call and learns who Joe is, Kong asks him to train him and he does. Joe also meets a local girl who is deaf and spends time with her. However, Joe has a hard time keeping his other life from her. It also appears that the person who hired Joe, breaks his rule of complete anonymity and tries to find him. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Goofs

During the scene that Joe kills Surat's gang members which was sent to kill him. When Joe goes down from the stairs, he asks the injured gangster about where is Kong. He said in Thai "Yoo Nai Kong". However, in Thai grammar, subject should place before verb. So, he should say "Kong yoo nai" instead. See more »

Is it predictable ? - YES. But it is also very entertaining.
27 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

So what if I can predict what is going to happens, I can do it with most films nowadays - its not about that. Its about making a movie that entertains, and IMHO they have achieved that.

OK, some of the shooting sequences were a bit dodgy and the narration descended into the cliché on occasions but overall I rate this film better then most action films I have seen in recent months.

Cage is solid in his role and so is his side kick. The elephant did a good job too but his role was only in 2 scenes :) So all in all 7 is my vote and it could have been better if not for a few lines of monologue and a couple of silly shootouts across water canisters.

Watch it and make your own mind.
