The life of an anonymous assassin takes an unexpected turn when he travels to Thailand to complete a series of contract killings. Joe (Nicolas Cage), a remorseless hitman, is in Bangkok to execute four enemies of a ruthless crime boss named Surat. He hires Kong (Shahkrit Yamnarm), a street punk and pickpocket, to run errands for him with the intention of covering his tracks by killing him at the end of the assignment. Strangely, Joe, the ultimate lone wolf, instead finds himself mentoring the young man while simultaneously being drawn into a tentative romance with a local shop girl. As he falls further under the sway of Bangkok's intoxicating beauty, Joe begins to question his isolated existence and let down his guard... just as Surat decides it's time to clean house.

Nicolas Cage Gets Deadly in ‘Bangkok Dangerous’

Nicolas Cage has been entertaining us for years and years. From his early days in Valley Girl and Raising Arizona to Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas up to his latest franchise with the National Treasure films, and so many more in between. Cage ventures into new territory in his new film Bangkok Dangerous, both in playing a downtrodden hitman looking for a way out, and in working with Hong Kong directors Oxide and Danny Pang. I was in on a conference call today with Cage and he had much to say about this film and other projects like the possibility of a sequel to his comic-book film, Ghost Rider. Here's what Cage had to say.
