BANGKOK KNOCKOUT Trailer Promises Perhaps The Craziest Action Fest Ever

I’ve been a fan of Asian action films for a long time, and I’ve seen some crazy stuff. I’ve seen Jackie Chan stand in front of a speeding bus and Michelle Yeoh jump a motorcycle onto a moving train. And all of it has been achieved on a fraction of what Hollywood would spend on such things. And now the below trailer for Bangkok Knockout looks to be a culmination of two decades and more of all those films. Remember when Jackie Chan fought a guy in the cramped quarters under a stationary railroad car? Well, this seems to do that one better by having two guys fighting while hanging on to the undercarriage of a moving tractor trailer! Check it out –

The film is directed Panna Rittikrai, the fight choreographer for Tony Jaa’s breakthrough Ong Bak. Magnolia has picked it up for distribution in the US, though there’s no word as to when they plan on having it in theaters.Hopefully soon, because this taste has made me hungry for more.
