ONLY AND EXCLUSIVELY For The Martial Arts Action Movie Junkie!!! Oct. 20 2010
By AZDEVIL - Published on
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a film that is well-rounded in martial-arts action, humor and plot, you need to look elsewhere. The acting is mediocre at best, the story is absurd and the humor completely fails in delivery except for a couple of sight gags that may or may not bring a weak chuckle. Of course, this is to be expected and almost a standard in most low budget action films. BUT THE ACTION IS 100% AWESOME!!! Nothing but top notch fight choreography, brutal bone-crunching hits and jaw dropping free-running executed to perfection for the sole purpose of entertaining the most hardcore of martial-arts movie fans!!! Let's face it, if you're a hardcore action fan like me, you don't watch action flix for the plot. Most stories in these films are a generated excuse to break the protagonists and antagonists into a flurry of fists and kicks. The question is how to come up with the best fight or action scene to top the last one.
If you're the critical action fanatic looking for the next masterpiece, keep looking. Now, if you're part of the hardcore fans, this movie was tailor made for you!!!

Highly Recommended, Very Good Martial Arts Movie Oct. 10 2010
By Valen's Shadow - Published on
Format: DVD
I can't comment on this DVD specifically , having watched the British DVD release of Bangkok Adrenaline earlier this year...

It's been a long time since the first trailer appeared on the internet for Bangkok Adrenaline. So I was really pleased to get an opportunity to finally see this film. Bangkok Adrenaline features the young exciting British talent Daniel O'Neill (a former member of the Jackie Chan stunt team), who thrills with his amazing moves electrifying the screen. He free runs with agility, grace and energy, then performs unbelievable gymnastic like moves and his sheer speed , skill, kicks, punches, elbows and knees his opposition to defeat.

The action doesn't have the same kind of bone breaking brutality of Tony Jaa. Yet I found it immensely satisfying.

Between the plentiful action involved in the film there are some good and very funny scenes that kept me entertained but I won't elaborate so I don't spoil anything .

The acting is passable if nothing special from the main cast but some of the actors are pretty bad in the smaller roles. However, if you're thinking of watching this film you won't be watching it for the acting and drama. Like me your here for the action, the martial-arts and the thrills contained within. On that basis Bangkok Adrenaline is a roaring success of a movie and one I would definitely recommend watching.

Oh yeah this is an English language movie as it was filmed to be.

Easily one of the best new martial-arts films out this year!

7.5 out of 10.

"You're not very smart, are you?" May 17 2013
By Michael Sehorn - Published on
Format: DVD
This film had been on my to-watch list for the longest time before I was finally persuaded towards a rental by the recommendation of a pal. I'm happy to say that I'll be thanking him for his suggestion, because "Bangkok Adrenaline" is quite an entertaining movie. I don't gravitate towards martial arts comedies much, even the biggest and best of them, but this one ends up being an exception. It obviously isn't everyone's cup of tea, but despite a rocky start, this freshman outing of director Raimund Huber (Kill Em All) certainly makes my day through the power of its offbeat storyline and its trainload of action.

The story: four friends vacationing in Bangkok find themselves thick in gambling debt to a mafia boss. With one week to repay their massive balance, they initiate a plan to kidnap and ransom the daughter of local millionaire (Geoffrey Giuliano, The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption), but are ill-prepared when their plot intersects with a fiendish plan of the man's own...

I wasn't sure I was going to like this movie as much as I eventually did - at least not within the first thirty minutes or so. The lead characters aren't very well defined and much of what they do outside of action scenes is either vaguely cruel or pretty stupid. However, somehow they ended up growing on me, probably as a natural result of me getting comfortable with the comedic tone of the film and because they end up becoming heroes, albeit by accident. The acting isn't great - particular dramatic offenders include Priya Suandokemai as the kidnapee, Lex de Groot (Kingdom of War) as one of the lead henchmen, and director Huber himself as one of the main four - but the unpredictable and occasionally clever writing helps make up for any performance deficiencies. The dramatic twist in the middle of the film genuinely surprised me, and it was at this (at the very latest) that I began warming up to the picture.

And even if you don't like the story, so what - the action scenes will make this worthwhile viewing for just about any cinematic adrenaline junkie. These aren't the best fight scenes ever filmed, but they're high above average. At worst, the chase scenes feel a bit like they're aping Ong-Bak and the fight choreography features a few too many facetious acrobatics, but in the end the action direction comes together for a very exciting and likeable package. I particularly enjoyed a two-against-many fight in an empty warehouse which featured some fun double-team choreography, as well as an encounter in a tight walkway wherein the performers were still somehow able to pull off some great XMA moves. More than anything, this movie is a spectacular showcase for longtime Hong Kong stuntman and first-time star Daniel O'Neil (Vampire Effect), who disappointingly seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth after the film's release. Come back, Dan! - we need more folks like you in these movies!

As proven by his later feature, director Huber definitely has a knack for this sort of flick, and the world of DTV martial arts films will definitely be a better place if this weirdo can keep on getting projects, even if they take a few minutes to get used to. It may be the forgiving martial arts enthusiast who gives this one a better score than me, but I can think of few folks who won't be able to get into this one's adrenaline ride. Give a look!

Get It For The Action Only Feb. 8 2011
By SeanLau99 - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Bangkok Adrenaline is loaded with outstanding fight scenes and that's why Martial Arts junkies should buy this. The acting is a joke because most of the cast speaks horrible English and stumbles through lines. The comedy is poorly timed and executed and it's hard to like the four leads because they are just jerks. However, when three of them get into brawls (one of them can't fight a lick), you forget about their annoying slacker personalities. The main star, Daniel O Neill blends Muay Thai, Parkour, Capoeira, and other styles together flawlessly. He is truly amazing to watch. You might not care for his character but you have to respect his skills. He definitely deserves to appear in his own direct to dvd sagas. The story is lame as the four British anti-heroes decide to kidnap a rich guy's daughter for ransom in order to pay a huge gambling debt to a gangster while vacationing in Bangkok. The young lady's father is also a criminal and that's where the mayhem begins. So, forget about the acting, comedy and wack story. Concentrate on the action and this works. Once again, Bangkok Adrenaline is a must for Martial Arts fans.
(2.5 STARS) Silly Action Comedy with One Redeeming Quality -- Martial Arts Action Oct. 30 2010
By Tsuyoshi - Published on
Format: DVD
Four British backpackers in Thailand, heavily in debt to a gangster due to gambling, plan to kidnap a billionaire Mr. Dawson's only daughter Irene in order to pay back the money in seven days. Of course, things go ridiculously wrong when Mr. Dawson is not an ordinary businessman. He sends out two well-trained henchmen to find the kidnappers. Martial arts fights ensue.

Actually, the thrilling martial arts sequences are the reason you should see this Thai action film (language in English and Thai). The story is predicable at best, with improbable twists and turns (where did they get sleeping gas?); special effects (including a fake explosion) look so cheap; acting is amateurish and the jokes are lame and corny.

Still the film's action scenes deliver the goods. Most (if not all) of the younger actors can do stunts for real, jumping and kicking without relying on editing, and among them the most impressive is Daniel O'Neill as Dan, one of the four travelers in trouble. If those four kidnappers are terribly annoying, nice actions almost make up for that.

The film itself is light-hearted, never taking itself seriously. Maybe it is not as intense or bone-crunching as Tony Jaa films, but still entertaining.
