Bangkok Dangerous

Bangkok Dangerous Warning: Bangkok Dangerous is not a high-brow foreign action film. It's just trying to sound like it is. But, no, Nicolas Cage plays a guy name "Joe" (we know this thanks to his even-more-annoying-than-voice-over-guy's voice-over in the trailer) who is traveling to Thailand for work of some type. He travels a lot and is always alone, blah, blah, blah. With the way they're promoting Cage as the star, but also trying to make it look like a kung-fu movie, it's hard to tell what this thing is actually about. Thankfully, the trailer gives us a few more clues: It starts with Cage's faux-thoughtful voice-over, but then cuts to lots of action. Then we get the gravelly voiced regular voice-over guy (when one voice-over isn't enough...), who says, "When it comes to killing: Make it quick. Make it clean. And never make it personal." Okay, I'm going to take a stab at pigeonholing it: This is a silly, shoot-em-up action movie starring Nic Cage that takes itself entirely -- embarrassingly -- too seriously.
