Fans of Dustin Nguyen are certainly basking in one hell of a resurgence for the man. Ever since 2007’s “The Rebel”, the first film of his I saw in a long, long time, he’s been a pretty busy guy, and one of his films that is getting some love in Vietnam is the Thai-set “Angels” from director Wych Kaosayananda (“Ecks vs. Sever”). The film is something of an oddity — a Thai-set, Thai-produced movie shot almost exclusively in English (though I detect Thai dialogue tossed in here and there). Yes, no subtitles to read (for the most part) for all you lazy subtitle readers out there.
Check out a trailer and a handful of images (including some posters) for the film below. It’s kinda like “Taken” crossed with “Man on Fire”.
Bangkok, Thailand. The body of a naked and bound young woman (Angel) is discovered on the Chao Praya river. A senior Royal Thai Police Department detective (Peter) arrives on the scene and is horrified to discover that the victim is the daughter of one of his oldest friends, Johnny – a man whose friendship goes back to earlier days when both were CIA surrogates. A man who will stop at nothing to make whoever is responsible pay. Angels is a character driven drama following Johnny and Peter’s investigation into Angel’s death and the retribution that follows set against the back drop that is Bangkok in all it’s glory and hidden flaws.
The film also stars Gary Daniels, Sahajak Boonthanakit and Ammy Chanicha.
The movie recently opened in Vietnam, with a Thai date later this year. Stateside fans will have to wait a while though.
