[Movie] Review of Skin Trade

May 6, 2015

I was going to special screening of Skin Trade last week at Pavilion, thanks to Seeties and grabnocost!
PLOT : New Jersey detective, Nick Cassidy (Dolph Lundgren) heads to Bangkok where he teams up with Thai detective, Tony Vitayakui (Tony Jaa) to hunt down Viktor Dragovic (Ron Pearlman) and destroy his human trafficking network. Nick had inadvertently killed Dragovic’s son in a sting operation on the New Jersey docks, and Dragovic responded by attempting to kill Nick and his family. Nick miraculously survived the brutal attack, but his wife and daughter were killed.With nothing but vengeance to live for, Nick and Tony traverse their way through the Bangkok underworld in search of the elusive Dragovic. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Eddie Reed (Michael Jai White) is sent in to bring Nick home. But as the explosive crossfire ensues, Nick has to determine who his true allies are…

I knew Dolph Lundgren since he co-starring at The Expendables 2, yea...another action movie!For a 60s man, he still in terrific shape. Have to mentioned about Tony Jaa, if you watched Fast 7, you should know him (the guy who fight with Paul Walker in a moving truck. When 2 action stars meet together, what would you expect? =)
This movie is full with action and fight scenes, no doubt there are awesome fight scenes between Tony Jaa and Dolph Lundgren.
Skin Trade’s big stumbling block is the story line is very simple,but there are too many long shot for fight scenes and it makes me feel quite boring. Dolph Lundgren seems like a never die fighter, no matter how bad injured. .For me,this movie is too bloodthirsty and violence. Skin Trade is mainly to tell you how worst of human trafficking, and the cruel part is the reason behind of human trafficking is "Demand and supply", It can be stop if the world have No demand on this, how sad!

For those who like to watch action and violence movie, you can give it a try.
