And considering what I have seen in the last three trailers for the film, I am happy to see this film taking off in the press as much as it is.
I do look forward to the early reviews, though, pending the film's screening during the Cannes festival on May 22. So, we will have a good idea about what have coming by then. For now, if you haven't seen the clips already, here they are, with French subs included.
The film stars Ryan Gosling, Kristen Stewart, Vithaya Pansringarm, Yayaying Rhatha Phongam and Tom Burke.
Ten years ago in Bangkok Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.
When Julian's brother kills a prostitute, the police reaches out to retired cop Chang, known as the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughters murderer, then restores order by chopping off the man's right hand.
Julian's mother Jenna, the head of a powerful criminal organization, arrives in Bangkok to collect her son's body. She orders Julian to find his killers and raise hell.
Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release but Chang triumphs. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.
