    Bangkok Dangerous more violent than necessary

    Asian directing duo the Pang Brothers (Danny and Oxide) remake their own 1999 Thai action thriller, “”Bangkok Dangerous.”” Whether it can live up to the title of an action film is a tough question since it has more violence than action.

    Nicolas Cage stars as Joe, a hitman with a set of self-defined rules and long black hair that is rapidly receding. Joe travels to Bangkok to execute four enemies of the crime boss Surat (Nirattisai Kaljaruek).

    But even if you don’t like the relentless violence, you might want to check out Cage’s tough-but-sensitive character, the sort who can kill without blinking and then goes all gooey-eyed over a beautiful, deaf woman he meets in a pharmacy.

    “”Bangkok Dangerous”” isn’t awful. You should be able to watch it no matter how stupid Cage’s hair looks.
