Bangkok Dangerous - (10% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes)
The life of an anonymous assassin takes an unexpected turn when he travels to Thailand to complete a series of contract killings. The Pang Brothers (The Eye) direct this remake of their original, only with the help of a Hollywood star, Cage, and screenwriter, Jason Richman (Bad Company and Swing Vote).
