Synopsis

Julian, an American fugitive from justice, runs a boxing club in Bangkok as a front for his drug business. When forced to seek retribution for his brother’s death by their sociopathic mother, he comes tête-à-tête with the Angel of Vengeance.

Our take

Continuing his sublimely minimalist collaboration with the handsome, monosyllabic Ryan Gosling after the sharkskin-sleek Drive, Refn gave us his most controversial feature: A dangerous, exoticized mash-up of Asian spirituality and iconography, pulp Shakespeare, and, of course, hyper-violence.
