This story deals about an American hit-man(Nicolas Cage, also producer)in Thailand, he kills his victims with no remorse . The drug addict murderer forms a relationship with a young man(pleasant Shahkrit Yamnarm), as he teaches his craft to Thai hustler. Meanwhile, the killer falls in love with a deaf-mute( in the first version this handicap is borne by the murderous) pharmacist(enjoyable Charlie Young) and he shares brief moments of happiness.
This detailed study about an assassin and a youth he trains is an exciting movie with a great visual style. It concerns about murders, vengeance,love and this one delivers it well. The picture reworks many familiar issues, as a double-crossed hit-man in love. The rate of events blending drama and action are enhanced by extended length of the hunting scenes and occasional flashes of brilliance. There are a great deal of killing with some creative moments wrought from heavy stylistics and with a John Woo style. It succeeds in building intrigue, tension and nice performances, thanks to the affecting acting of the girl who plays the deaf and mute , she's frankly marvelous. The characters are well portrayed and they are persons for who the viewer has feeling and compassion. Worth it for the terse script and twists ending.
Furthermore, colorful and granulated cinematography by Decha Srimantra, usual of Pang brothers. Atmospheric musical score and fitting well to action by Brian Tyler ,author of Rambo 4, Constantine, War, among others soundtracks. The motion picture is professionally directed by Pang brothers(Messengers,Re-cycle,The eye 1, 2,3..),shooting during Thailand coup détat. Directors, Danny and Oxide Chun Pang did a cool but uneven work in making this violent story.
