4.0 out of 5 stars Bangkok fun-o! 30 May 2012
Format:DVD
The most fun I have had at an asian film since Kung Fu Hustle, and one of those rarities that I have wanted to watch through again immediately after the credits. Bangkok Loco is an exhilarating, vivid, and utterly mad film that combines martial arts, musical numbers, police thriller and cinematic homage in one in your face package. It has everything: drowning dogs, policemen with black eyes (and ears), 70's décor and haircuts, gore, references to Star Wars, Requiem for a Dream, The Stuntman and James Bond at least, yellow tracksuits in purple landscapes, tea parlours, drumming competitions, cheesy songs and two headed women. Oh yes, and the director's first name is Porno something. It's the sort of surreal, fresh product which Hollywood seems utterly unable to concoct, probably as it requires the fresh eyes of a different culture to reassemble so many familiar elements into such a jaw-dropping package. Either that or the production team were on something stronger than green tea.

The region 3 disc has a razor sharp image values as well as excellent sound which makes the most of the larger than life cinematography and the great score. Forget the nonsense about Loco running out of steam towards the end - it does no such thing. Although well subtitled, one amazing thing about this film are the many no doubt Thai-specific in jokes, which would make it even funnier for local audiences.. For more of the same type of Thai film madness, check out SARS Wars (Khun krabii hiiroh (2004)) - but even that doesn't quite match the delirium on offer here.
