      The primary flaw with this movie, and it’s a pretty big one, is that it’s just plain boring. I don’t know how an action movie about an international hit man manages to make me fall asleep, but this one did.

      Twice.

      Nicolas Cage is at his blandest in this tale of a world renowned hitman, hired to carry out a final job in the well, dangerous streets of Bangkok.

      I actually tried to keep track of the times when


      Nicolas Cage changed his facial expression, but got bored of this when he wore the same indifferent, soulless stare throughout the first half of the movie.

      There’s one scene in particular, where Nicolas Cage’s character is just beginning his courtship of a local deaf/mute pharmacy worker, that is particularly cringe worthy.

      In the hands of another actor, one with actual facial expressions, this scene could have been at least bearable.

      Here, however, it drags on for what seems like ...


      • eternity, as Cage is forced to carry both ends of a dinner date conversation with such witty gems as “this is hot,” “my soup is too hot,” and “Oh! now it’s colder.

        ” I would probably rather stare at a vacant wall than watch that pitiful excuse for dialogue one more time.

        The action, when it appears, is not good either.

        There are one or two scenes that were shot fairly well, but they suffer the same fate as the

        rest of the movie: they just seem to drag on, as if nothing happens.

        I can’t remember being this bored at a movie any time lately.

        Unless you’re a die hard Nicolas Cage fan, avoid this movie at all costs.

        And even if you do inordinately love all things Nicky Cage, this still is far below numerous other movies of his.

        Bottom line, this is not a good movie, and i would not recommend it to anyone who enjoys being entertained.
