Bangkok Dangerous (Pang Bros., 2008) Nicolas Cage in hitman remake


HD Trailer | IMDB | August 22, 2008

In the original, the hitman is a deaf-mute. In the remake, Nicolas Cage's girlfriend is.

The original, much like the Pang Bros themselves, was overrated.

Hitman remake?

We have really gone down the toilet when there's a remake of a movie based on a video game.

What spoiled it? The trailer, or the description on IMDB?

What's with the bad hairpieces they keep giving Cage? He would've looked better had he just shaved his head. (not totally bald like hitman, but a close crop at least) It's time Nic, you're not 30 anymore...

Unlike the rest of you, I'll judge it after I see at least the trailer. Who knows, right?

It seems, with each successive Nicolas Cage action vehicle, I wish that I were deaf. And preferably also blind.

There's a link to the trailer in the first post if you're interested.
This flick isn't getting any excitement from me. Its only hope is the star power of Nicholas Cage, which I think is pretty much used up.

It's a movie ABOUT a hitman, not based on the character "Hitman". Totally different.

About his hair, Nic got the transplantation done in the early days of the procedure, so it looks like shit.

I don't know about this, but Nick Cage's been doing one lousy movie after another these past years.

Just saw the trailer. I'm not going to see this for the same reason I didn't see The DaVinci Code.

Penelope Cruz isn't in it?

This might be a little better than his recent efforts. I used to be a big fan of Cage's in the mid 90s. Besides WTC, since National Treasure Cage just seems to be selling his namesake and disregarding the quality of his movies. IMO.
