Bangkok Dangerous - My Short Review



Just watched it last night. Here is my short/jumbled "review" of the dvd/film.

Aspect Ratio: Full Screen (original OAR?)
Audio: Dolby Digital 2.0 (Not sure)
Language: Thai with English subtitles.

The dvd was bare bones. The menu consisted of the playing the movie or playing the trailer. No option to turn off English Subtitles.

No chapter listing insert.

If you like Directing style of Quentin Tarantino and John Woo and can appreciate small budget foreign films then you will enjoy Bangkok Dangerous. Great use of flashback scenes to tell the story. Some of the visuals were stunning.

Great film, good acting, good video transfer.

The fact that I've been to Bangkok and enjoyed the city and the culture influenced my decision to get this dvd. I'm very glad I did.

The cheapest price is $15.34 shipped at buy.com.

Hmmmm, Can anyone who has ordered it from dvdasian.com confirm the aspect ratio? Is there actually a version with 1.85:1 widescreen?

I purchased my retail copy at J&R music world in NYC. My copy had Full Screen. There were no specifications regarding aspect ratio on the back cover art.
