SET YOUR SIGHTS ON REVENGE.
Assassin Curtie Church (Djimon Hounsou) clashes with gangsters in Thailand who have turned teenage girls into prostitutes; one of them (Jirantanin Pitakporntrakul) becomes his ally. This action movie from the Ong-Bak (2003) director went straight to DVD. Its attempt to take on a very serious issue is compromised by the simple fact that it’s dull and poorly made, with bad guys who are as uninteresting as Hounsou’s character. Kevin Bacon is supposed to deliver comic relief (with a British accent), but it’s for naught.
