All action and no brains...
24 June 2012 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

First of all, I must say that oddly enough the DVD movie I bought from Amazon is titled "The Vanquisher", and not "Final Target", so I had to do an actor search on IMDb in order to find the right movie. (And I will go with "The Vanquisher" title in this review.)

There is no doubt about it that this is an all out action movie from start to end, and the action was actually quite good and full of adrenaline. There was a lot of sword fighting in the movie, which was nice, aside from the slightly overdone sword sounds. And being a Thai movie, of course you have martial arts in it as well, and that too was also nicely made and choreographed. And finally, lots and lots of gun fights with all manner of weapons, ranging from handguns to LAWs.

Now, that being said, then it must be said that there is almost no storyline here in "The Vanquisher". There is something about terrorism and four different groups/factions chasing after something. And that was about, and to make matters worse, then there was absolutely no coherent red line in the storyline, the movie was jumping all over the place, trying to tie four different angles into the storyline, but failing miserably. So basically, it was all just about showing as much action as possible in 89 minutes.

"The Vanquisher" keeps jumping back and forth between Thai, English and Japanese language, which was a nice enough attempt, in theory. But the end result in the movie made it confusing and a messy one. Especially the English, sure I can relate to Asians pronouncing English oddly (as I used to live in Hong Kong), but when put in a movie, at least make a proper effort. Most of the times, is was like they just said something they had been instructed and taught, having no clue what they were saying at all.

The language was one barrier in the movie, but the scripted dialogue itself just added to the abysmal horror. The dialogue was so forced and unnatural, halting at times, it was really gruesome to sit there and witness at times.

What makes it worth to sit through "The Vanquisher" is the non-stop action, and of course the cat-fights (which I am sure there is a massive audience out there for).

Put your mind on pause and just lean back and enjoy the adrenaline-packed action ride, because "The Vanquisher" is nothing more than just that.
