Both the Phuket Film Festival and the Shanghai Film Festival are showcasing Yuthlert Sippapak’s new movie FRIDAY KILLER. It's said to be the first in a trilogy by the great Thai director who has decided, with great imagination, to call the remaining parts, Saturday Killer and Sunday Killer.
Filled with quirky humour, great action scenes and loads of character references, the trilogy is sure to be as entertaining as his earlier works - Killer Tattoo and Buppah Rahtree.
Pay Uzi (Thep Po-ngam) is a legendary hit man nicknamed Friday Killer due to his superstition of only carrying out hits on a Friday. Released from prison, Pay is stalked by old enemies and younger hitmen out to prove themselves. He is also pursued by Dao, a gorgeous lesbian policewoman on a crusade.
Ploy Jindachote, who plays supercop Dao
Dao, though gorgeous, is a physically tough, complex character, however and becomes an equal match for Pay. The action scenes are the real deal, employing swish camera setups and slick editing.
This film is well-worth viewing.
