A motorcycle stunt rider turns to robbing banks as a way to provide for his lover and their newborn child, a decision that puts him on a collision course with an ambitious rookie cop navigating a department ruled by a corrupt detective.
A young man who was sentenced to seven years in prison for robbing a post office ends up spending three decades in solitary confinement. During this time, his own personality is supplanted by his alter-ego, Charles Bronson.
Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a man 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 murders an underage prostitute, the police call on retired cop Chang - the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughter's murderer, then 'restores order' by chopping off the man's right hand. Julian's mother Crystal - the head of a powerful criminal organization - arrives in Bangkok to collect her son's body. She dispatches Julian to find his killers and 'raise hell'. Written by

After the fight of the opening scene, the arm of the winner is raised by the referee and the defeated fighter is picked up by his helpers in blue. When the camera cuts to the other side of the ring, this is shown again. See more »
After Drive, i was very curious to see what he was doing next.
This movie was fairly ambitious in its own ways, visually is a stunning
mix of colors and beautiful composed shots, which elevates the whole
mood of the movie. The story itself is a fairly simple one, however it
is told in a way in which depended heavily on the actors performance,
and this is were the movie fails. the way some of the actors fail to
act the parts almost like shadows of themselves, sometimes overacting
and being too much aware of the camera detracts from Nicolas
intentions. Gosling is good here, so is Kristin Scott Thomas, the rest
of the cast is hit or miss in some scenes. The overall surreal way of
telling this story could've worked a lot better if they had solved
those issues. I liked the subtext behind the whole relationship between
Chang (who in is own ways has a twisted God complex) and Julian's
In the end it makes me a little sad, i think with a little more time
put into working with the actors, it could've elevated the movie to
another level, also without spoiling anything, i think the out of the
box scenes could've been pushed a little more!! 7 out of 10!!
