Storyline

Steamy Thai nights provide the backdrop for unbridled romance, crime and action as two men unexpectedly brave forbidden love. Maek, a cold assassin-for-hire, is sent to knock off Iht, a police informant, when in a twist of fate the killer is shot for refusing to pull the trigger. After making their escape, an indelible bond is forged when the vulnerable assassin is nursed back to health by handsome, married Iht. But as taboo feelings of desire swell between the swarthy new lovers, their relationship is discovered. Now there's no turning back as enemies, friends and lovers are pitted against each other.

Might work as humorous if you were stoned
5 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

This movie is so amateurish and melodramatic by our standards. It is also ends up being very boring. I watched it out of curiosity and the one Thai actor is quite hot looking other than it is a waste 2 hours.

Sometimes really bad movies can be funny...this one might work that way if you were stoned but otherwise forget it.

This thing was geared towards gay audiences....they flushed out the handsomest young Thai actors gave them a macho gangster flair for sexiness but good grief!....it is so silly maudlin and drags.

Also after all the effort to put gays in macho non stereotyped roles why have one of the lovers shot in the end. What a depressing deflation... I wish they would put gay people in normal roles where they just happen to be gay. A gay James Bond with upbeat endings instead of the mother hanging herself etc...

This script may conform to some sort of Thai typical gangster plot? Also the excessive melodrama maudlin sentimentality may sell there. Did any of you notice how terrible the acting is....one of the gangsters tries to do a facial tick but it is so obviously forced..

The cinematography is to show that Thailand (Bangkok) has arrived at the dystopia future big city life. I have been to Bangkok several times it does not resemble this movie...except maybe the grid locked traffic and a constant 99 degree and 100% humidity weather.
