Djimon Hounsou does what he does best in this extended, two-minute plus clip from Thai director Prachya Pinkaew’s English-languaged debut, the action thriller “Elephant White”. In this case, what Hounsou’s character does best is slaughter about a gazillion bad dudes inside a house using a high-powered rifle with a silencer attached. Hey, good work if you can get’em.
Mercenary Curtie Church (Djimon Hounsou) is hired to take out a notorious Thai sex-trafficking gang by a father’s whose daughter was kidnapped and murdered by the gang. With the help of a ruthless weapons dealer (Kevin Bacon), Church finds the men he is hired to kill. But what starts as a paying job turns into an outright war between two rival gangs, and Church finds himself caught between the corrupt world that surrounds him and the truth behind the man who hired him.
“Elephant White” stars Hounsou and Kevin Bacon, and is due on DVD and Blu-ray Tuesday, May 17th from Millennium Films.
