Asian remake number 3,003. The Pang Brothers, the respected duo that helmed the original “Bangkok Dangerous,” are back to bring their 1999 Thai action flick to Western audiences. No, they didn’t just dub it or subtitle it – they re-shot it, complete with a particularly greasy-looking Nicholas Cage as the lead. I don’t even want to get into what this phenomenon of remaking nearly every Asian film to make money says about our inherent xenophobia, but I will say this looks like decent, mindless fun. Hot cars, hot women and lots of explosions? All right, I’ll just shut up and have fun with it.
