Movie review score

What’s it about?
Julian (Ryan Gosling), a respected figure in the criminal underworld of Bangkok, runs a Thai boxing club and smuggling ring with his brother Billy who is suddenly murdered. Blah blah blah… Julian finds himself in the ultimate showdown.

What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: The producers are obviously relying on Gosling’s sex appeal because they didn’t bother polishing a story that is excessively padded, meandering and ridiculously pretentious. I’m not sure even God will forgive this slow and painful monstrosity of a movie.
