Graham L (es) wrote: Mickey Holliday (Goldblum) is as cool as you like. He's quick on the trigger, he's a hit with the ladies and he's got style coming out his ears. Unfortunately for him, he has been a hit with the wrong lady - his boss' girl, Grace Everley (Diane Lane - "Knight Moves"). His gangster boss, Vic (Dreyfuss - "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", "Stakeout", "Lost in Yonkers") is getting out of prison (well, more specifically the nuthouse) in a couple of days and he is none too happy with the antics of Mickey. Pulling the strings in Vic's absence is motormouth, Ben London (Byrne - "Millers Crossing", "The Usual Suspects") who tends to believe in his own abilities a little more than everyone else does. He warns Mickey of what is going to happen when Vic gets out.But Mickey says that he is finished with Grace and is instead involved with her sister, Rita (Ellen Barkin - "Sea of Love", "The Fan"). Mickey makes ready cash on the side by challenging other trigger-happy gangsters to a shoot-out normally arranged by his mentor, Jules Flamingo (Gregory Hines). Some of the other gunslingers looking to take over from Holliday include Lee Turner (former British rocker, Billy Idol) and Nicholas Falco (Christopher Jones). Fellow gnagsters Jake Parker (Kyle McLacLachlan) and Jacky Jackson (Burt Reynolds) are keen to eliminate Mickey in order to get closer to Vic's empire."Trigger Happy" (aka "Mad Dog Time") delivers a host of extravagant colourful characters and places them in tense and comic situations, sometimes simultaneously. Infact "Trigger Happy" is probably one of those films that could purport to be a jack of all trades and be a master of none. The jokes are at times, frankly, sad. For example, the snappy dialogue which includes the Vic, Mick (Mickey) and Nick (Nicholas Falco) names in quick succession and plays it as a 'joke' is very lacking. But on the other side there are some excellent one-liners from the witty Ben London.Goldblum is very smooth here, Dreyfuss is his usual qualty self, Diane Lane and Ellen Barkin are very sexy. Enjoyable stuff for sure but not everyone's cup of tea, I wouldn't think.

This film is so brilliant in so many aspects...not to mention the Vangelis soundtrack which is out of this world! He's British, so of course Hollywood will never give his films a high rating...which kill almost everything they produce in spades! Gerard Depardieu rules in the lead role as usual throughout his storied career...shining as the Genoan visionary.

It's a remake of an Asian film, it stars Nicolas Cage with long hair and giving a really bad performance, crappy acting, cheesy action scenes, utterly ridiculous scenes of drama and bonding, and an endless tsunami of hitman film cliches that would normally make me trash the shit out this kind of film.But as crappy and ineptly made as Bangkok Dangerous is...I had a whole lot of fun watching this slice of crappy entertainment in ways that I shouldn't have. What the fuck is wrong with me as of late giving so many terrible films positive reviews? Oh well, let's get on with it, then.The film is about a hitman named Joe, who is in the best of the business as cliches would require him to be. He is also tired of his job and decides to do one last assignment in Bangkok in which he must assassinate four men.Things start off as usual with his assignments: he finds a secret location, hires a guy named Kong whose main purpose is to be an errand boy who can be disposed of after the job is done, he avoids contacts and attachments with locals, and he begins to carry out his assignment.However, things are different this time around when he grows attached to Kong because he reminds him of himself (So, was Joe a stupid errand boy at one point?) and begins to train him like a teacher...for some reason (Imagine a white, younger, boring version of Mr. Miyagi with an ugly 80's lesbian haircut and more violent tendencies). He also happens to start falling in love with a deaf girl who works at a pharmacy, breaking more of his own rules in the process. He also begins to think about his own actions emotionally, rather than doing them in a cold and clinical way, causing further disorder in his life as he changes.This doesn't make his employers happy and the seek to destroy him and everything he loves. Now Joe must do what is right and protect those he cares about, while putting his own life in danger as he becomes a different person.The story is indeed chock full of cliches that one would come to expect from hitman or cop films, with the only difference being a rather surprising ending. Still, everything is rather familiar as far as the plot goes, which is rather underwhelming. The plot is only made interesting by the inept direction and unintentionally funny moments that are sprinkled throughout the film.The acting is also quite bad, with Nicolas Cage delivering one of his worst performances, bar none. Every person in this film is either over the top or detached and emotionless with their performances, making for a rather strange but fascinating viewing experience as one watches such inept performances take place. It's really quite interesting to watch in ways that it shouldn't be.I also had fun with the ridiculous action scenes, particularly the boat chase scene which results in the target having his arm chopped off by a boat propeller and then shot several times. The action scenes are over the top, bloody, and downright cheesy, making for a really fun, crap-tastic viewing experience as a B-movie fanatic.With a hokey story, plenty of bad acting, hilariously awful drama, and plenty of violence, Bangkok Dangerous is pure, crappy entertainment that only the most hardened of B-movie fanatics can possibly enjoy because there is not a single bit of legitimate goodness to be found. However, it sure makes for a breezy 90-some-odd minutes of stupid fun and I praise it because of that.

This, I admit was a great launch to the Marvel cinematic universe, and boy did it pay off, or what!? I realized that I ended up enjoying this allot more for the second time it's been viewed in years! Director Favreau Once again brought us something special here, not just with memorable characters, but with an interesting origin story, and heart pounding action! Only wish that the rest of the cinematic universe didn't have it's fair share of mistakes which came along in the years afterwards.
Derek P (fr) wrote: In spite of Jackson dumbing down the plot of Tolkien's original to make it a more simplistic good vs. evil fight (e.g. removing the Dunlendings so that all the enemies would have no soul, making Sauruman an agent of Sauron rather than a man lusting after the one ring like everyone else, making Theoden possessed by Sauruman rather than just duped, adding elves in the final battle so that the men wouldn't have been abandoned by all the "good" groups to be killed by the orcs as they were in the book, making Smeagol and Gollum literally 2 different people in one body, and so on and so forth) this is an exceptionally exciting movie, and it contains some of the only long battle scenes that I can actually say I thoroughly enjoyed sitting through, including both Helm's Deep and Isenguard. Frodo's darkening personality as a result of the one ring is masterfully done. The one plot changed I liked was the Ents initially refusing to join the fight, as it allowed for a very powerful scene and made up for some of the loss in moral complexity.
