Directed By: Wych Kaosayananda
Starring: Mark Dacascos, Kane Kosugi, Vandia Golten &, Julie Condra
Synopsis: A hit man named Kai flies into Bangkok, gets a gun, and orders a cab. He offers a professional female driver big money to be his all-night driver. But when she realizes Kai is committing brutal murders at each stop, it’s too late to walk away. Meanwhile, an offbeat police detective races to decode the string of slayings before more blood is spilled. This chilling action-thriller — a homage to Collateral, with a shocking twist — stars Mark Dacascos (John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum).
Review: Seeing Mark Dacascos headline an action thriller had me sold. Watching Mark on screen is always a highlight.
From the moment the movie opened and you could see the neon lights and the dark backdrop, the noir thriller vibe breezes through your body. it is like you are in a trance, it makes for beautiful viewing on screen.
One Night In Bangkok is a character driven thriller that delves deep inside the characters and why they’re doing what they do and how they got to where they are now.
While One Night In Bangkok isn’t exactly John Wick with endless shootouts and fights etc it does feature some pretty brutal assassinations from Dacascos. We also get a nice finale which features Dacascos and Kane Kosugi going head to head, which is quite brutal and fast paced.
The main focus of this story is solely the characters, namely Dacascos and new star Vandia Golten. The most of their part is told while journeying too and from hits.
Though some movies are over written with pointless dialogue, this is not. Every piece of dialogue has a meaning and it’s a story with meaning and values, how far would you go for your family?
This mmovie is very gritty and brutal but also opens itself up too a more vulnerable side. Combining itself with redemption and revenge this movie is one everyone should check out. Wych and Dacascos once again prove they are a solid duo!
