Bangkok Revenge (2011/Well Go USA Blu-ray)


Picture: A-     Sound: B-     Extras: D     Film: B+



When Manit (Jon Foo) was 10 years old, he watched as his parents were murdered and he himself was shot in the head and left for dead, but somehow he lived, brain damaged with ataraxia, hidden way for 20 years training to be the ultimate Muay Thai boxer.  Now, he'll have to fight, corrupt cops, girl gangsters, and entire army of martial artists to find the man responsible for the death of his family in Bangkok Revenge (2011).


After those brutal murders, Manit was saved by a hospital nurse to be secretly raised to become a master of Muay-Thai boxing.  Two decades later, he investigates the reason why his family was murdered, from the smallest street thug he works up the chain of command. He discovers his family was killed not only to cover up the corrupt cops, but to cover up a largest heroin shipment in Thailand.  He now he has to single-handily take down not only the mob, but the police force as well.   


This was one action packed movie. There are plenty of bloody fights, dismemberments and no end to body bags.  The main character sort of reminds me of a young 'Punisher' (minus the guns) with Muay Thai Boxing, emotionless and determined, he break people like a toothpick and steps over them like it was nothing.  While violent, you feel like it is karma justice for all the people he beats up, they deserve it.  For a foreign film, is it oddly spoken in English for half the time.


The 1080p 1.85 X 1 digital High Definition image is remarkable and the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) lossless track has some limits, but is not bad, though not as great as it should have been.  Extra includes trailers, which is really not much.
