Thai special ops guy gives himself a week to contain a virus threat; CIA chuckles.
3 May 2011 | by BoloxxxiSee all my reviews

This movie is about Thailand special forces (NSSD) trying to contain a virus outbreak caused by a pharmaceutical company (GBC) that is deliberately infecting people in order to find a cure. The managing director of the company justifies this by saying that the people used as guinea pigs were not doing much with their lives anyway and so are essentially worthless. He pointed out as an example a guy who is always playing video games. I had to laugh (You know anyone like that?). Anyway, the virus is ironically called "HOPE" and is a strain of Ebola but deadlier.

A female reporter (Nicha) gets tipped off about the whole thing by a doctor whose clients were being deliberately infected. This knowledge puts her in direct conflict with NSSD and more specifically it's leader; a guy named "Jet" (Kind of corny but better than "Frank" or "Bill", I guess). He wants everything top secret and she wants to blab to everybody.

Meantime, there's a Super Assassin employed by GBC going around putting people in his cross hairs, including Nicha. The movie is called My Best Bodyguard because nosy Nicha eventually gets her injection of HOPE along with some others --including the "video games" guy. They become the target of NSSD and GBC who want them for their own reasons and so Nicha's estranged father (Yes, Nicha has daddy issues), who pops up here and there trying to look out for his daughter, hires someone to protect her and the other infected.

I had some continuity problems with the story in terms of how they got from point A to B. Some of the action had the same problem. When the Super Assassin (I'm calling him) has a fight with NSSD special forces you couldn't see exactly what he did. The movie editor basically did his fighting for him with "quick cuts". "Slight-of-hand" fighting, I call it. So do I recommend this movie? Not for veteran actioneers or seasoned action movie viewers. The fight scenes are not clean and good enough. These guys are clearly JUST actors folks, not fighters.

There are ample car chases and bullets flying but exploding cars look "rigged" like there is a hidden cable causing the cars to flip to make things look spectacular. As well, the story isn't fresh but a variant and cliché of so many other action movies. So again, If you have a lot of action movies under your belt (as I do) you do not need this. A quick multiple choice quiz before I sign off: If someone immediately opposite you were shot, would you (A) get the hell down, or (B) calmly remain standing and look in the direction of the shooter? If you said "A" you're a normal human being. If you said "B" you're either (1) suicidal (2) an acquaintance of the shooter (3) a child who doesn't know any better, or you're a----- . It's not only multiple choice, folks, but "fill in the blank" as well. I think you know the answer. Love, Boloxxxi.
