Short Trailer for Jon Foo's 'Bangkok Revenge' Thai Martial Arts Film
Trained for the future. Ready for revenge. There have been a lot of films that start with the city "Bangkok" then something as the title, and here's another - Revenge. It's Jean-Marc Minéo's Bangkok Revenge, starring Thai martial artist Jon Foo (from Tekken, Tom Yum Goong) as an "emotionless war machine" who returns to the place where his parents were killed to exact revenge. Interested yet? The film's cast includes Caroline Ducey as Clara, Michaël Cohen & Kowitch Wathana, with stunts/fights by David Ismalone, from Ong Bak and Ultraviolet. They just released a short trailer and it looks pretty badass, so give it a shot.
Here's the official US trailer for Jean-Marc Minéo's Bangkok Revenge, officially on YouTube:
Manit, a boy of ten years witnessed the murder of his parents. Unrelenting, the killers decide to eliminate it. Shot in the head, the child survives miraculously from his injuries, but finds himself struck by ataraxia. The damage to his brain took away any emotion. Saved from certain death by an old martial arts master, Manit (Foo), 20 years later becomes a real war machine, returns to the place of his childhood. Justice is going to fall, and men will die. Bangkok Revenge, aka Rebirth, is written & directed by newcomer Jean-Marc Minéo. China Lion Entertainment will release Bangkok Revenge in limited theaters starting on September 14th.

Yeah, I thought about watching it for the incredible acting and superb storytelling...but I suppose the fight scenes will have to do.
