On the verge of making partner, Josh Pratt's life is turned upside down when the SEC investigates the head of his multibillion-dollar hedge fund for insider trading. Forced into a well-timed "vacation" he never asked for Josh finds himself in Bangkok with a price on his head, a morally ambiguous brother who is knee deep into the Thai mafia, and a propensity for getting shot at. Unfortunately for Josh, the only way out is to give up information he doesn't know he has.Written by
The music in the film was good and the photography wasn't bad when considering the low budget this film was using. The script and action in the film was a bit stale and cliché, due to direction that appears to lack passion and a unique vision. The acting wasn't too great due to Colin Egglesfield's limited ability, though it was better than his lead role in the Thai horror film "Vampires: The Turning".
Not many Thai gangster films exist, that are accessible to an American audience, so that is a good reason to see this film. This film has greed as a central component, drawing a connection between wall street greed, money laundry, and the Thai mafia. So, it isn't a surprise that it doesn't have a large budget and isn't well received. The main reason to watch this film is that these topics are difficult to find elsewhere as a Thai film.
