In Bangkok, the assassin Curtie Church (Djimon Hounsou) is hired by a businessman to kill six men. Job done, the employer proposes another contract to Curtie to kill the lord of the traffickers that had addicted, prostituted and murdered his daughter. Curtie seeks out the Englishman Jimmy that is an arm dealer and he rents heavy weapons. Then Curtie provokes a war between gangs to eliminate the greatest number of white slave traders. Meanwhile, the young prostitute Mae meets Church and helps him to release other girls. When Mae vanishes, Curtie seeks her out and finds the truth about Mae.Written by

Djimon Hounsou and Kevin Bacon also appeared in Beauty Shop (2005). See more »
When Curtie is talking to Mae, he pulls out a bag of .50 caliber rifle bullets and starts sharpening the tips of them with a file. While that looks very sinister, it is something a serious shooter would never do. A hand filed tip on a bullet could dramatically alter the flight path and make it highly inaccurate. A filed down bullet would also have a negative impact on the air pressure over the projectile and would compromise the expansion and/or overall penetration. It looked very cool, but a pro would never do that. See more »
OK i have to say it has its bad moments there and there but it was actually quite entertaining and quite catchy , it just needed a really good director and a good budget to to make some scenes stick.
I loved the fact that it has a lot of truth behind it, and that was masterfully portrait. the spiritual aspect of it made this take a different direction compared to most movies of the same genre
please go see this and don't discard it just because someone else said it was bad, this was a really well executed concept kind of delayed watching it cause a lot of people gave this a lot of bad reviews of which at this point i don't get at all.
