SPECIAL RELATIONSHIPS

2 out of 5 stars

As much as I would like to understand this Ryan Gosling movie, I cannot. It seems like a tale of revenge turned very, very bloody. So here’s the description from IMDB:

“Julian, a drug-smuggler thriving in Bangkok’s criminal underworld, sees his life get even more complicated when his mother compels him to find and kill whoever is responsible for his brother’s recent death.”

The Thai opening credits made me wonder if I stepped into the wrong theatre. But it sure made it feel more authentic. Otherwise, it was just lots of spewing blood and a crusader of justice who may be slightly misguided.
