Bangkok trailer

If a remake only retains the original movie's title and setting, is it still considered a remake? I wondered that as I watched the trailer for BANGKOK DANGEROUS, the Pang Brothers' update of their own 1999 hitman thriller.

The original flick revolved around a deaf-mute assassin, and offered an interesting look at how someone with that physical limitation might function in such a deadly profession (both with and without his mentor/partner). This one seems to be about Nic Cage as an American hired gun with frightening hair who blows into Thailand for a few kills and a taste of local girls. Whatever.

Extra Tidbit: In case you missed it, the uninspired and somewhat creepy poster. Also, don't screw around with Nic's toast.

OK

Looks like a potentially decent flick! Nic Cage's hair never looks right in any movie. Maybe they should CG his hair in future movies?

looks promising

he's a good actor that's delivered over the years unique characters, but he's more known for his gritty action.
this one looks to be another good one

Nicolas Cage isn't a bad actor, his selection of films in the past couple of years have been sub-par at best. Even if this is a remake....-aw hell,
PACHINKO!!

Wow

For these guys to remake their film, and make Nicholas Cage talk and give him a persona to be more bad ass than Timothy Olyphant was in Hitman, I gotta give them major props.
Because this has totally got my ticket.
