Something about Nicolas Winding Refn movies that makes want to inflict violence on the bad guys. Is it just me? Am I the only one who is desensitized? Awesome!
Well, the studio is back with two more twisted looks at Refn’s dark tale of vengeance. One thing is for certain, Ryan Gosling’s mother scares the shit out of me. Every time she is on the screen I receive an overwhelming sense of dread. Gosling appears to mesh in the black and bloody world of Refn once again with ease. Check out the insane trailers for yourself:
Here is a synopsis of the film:
Bangkok. Ten years ago Julian killed a cop 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 a 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 Jenna – 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’.
