Overview and Review of Bangkok Dangerous directed by the Pang Brothers

Joe is an American professional assassin who picks someone off the street to do his errands and to assist him with his word, and after he is finished with his job kills that person. His next assignment takes him to Bangkok, Thailand and he hires a local street kid named Kong to help him with the deed. Joe also meets a local girl who is deaf and spends time with her. However, Joe has a hard time keeping his other life from the girl. It also appears that the Mafia person who hired Joe, breaks his rule of complete anonymity and tries to find him. (from IMDB)

Is it just me or did anybody notice? the action stunts were great... but Nicholas with the girl was way too cheesy. Unexpected ending. -_-

They both are proposed to by their boyfriends on the same day and they plan their wedding parties in Plaza Hotel, using the services of the famous Marion St. Claire. However, due to Marion's secretary's mistake, their weddings are scheduled for the same day. None of them agrees to change the date and they become enemies, trying to sabotage the wedding party of the rival.

Enjoyed the whole movie! I absolutely love the soundtracks!!!! :)

Nice lines I enjoyed: "Ipods are for lonely people who can't stand to be alone with themselves."

"I like your hair. You're really like this tall, hot Smurf." awwww. so sweet!

"It was quite a wedding and as I stood there watching I realized something I'd forgotten a long time ago. Sometimes in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken. Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what. Maybe you will find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding. But there's also the chance that the one person you can count on for a lifetime, the one person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself is the same person who's been standing beside you all along.
