Talking about the best action that has been seen on the big or small screen in recent years means doing it directly about ‘Gangs of London’; a cathedral of television thrillers that managed to shine both for its approach to criminal drama and for its wild action scenes that, how could it be otherwise, was led by Gareth Evans, director of the two brutal ‘The Raid’.
Well, if you enjoyed the Sky and AMC show, you’re in luck, because Xavier Genesresponsible for three episodes of its first season and films like that animal titled ‘Frontera(s)’, has teamed up with ‘Gangs of London’ choreographer Jude Poyer to shape ‘Farang’whose trailer you can see on these lines.
If, like me, you’re salivating at such a repertoire of cookies, split heads, point-blank shots and the most varied deaths, you’ll have to be patient, because at the moment ‘Farang’ only has a release date in its country of origin. Specifically, It will hit French theaters on June 28. by the hand of StudioCanal.
While we wait for the miracle to work and we can throw our hands on what aspires to be one of the great action movies of the year, starring Nassim Si Ahmed, Olivier Gourmet and Vithaya Pansringarm —among others—, I leave you with his official synopsis. Let’s cross our fingers and put some other candle so that it arrives soon – and, if possible, to theaters.
“Sam is an exemplary inmate. Within months of his release from prison, he is diligently preparing for his re-entry. During a leave, his past catches up with him and an accident leaves him with only one option: to flee. Five years later, he has rebuilt his life in Thailand, where he has raised the family he always dreamed of. However, Narong, the local crime boss, forces him to get involved in criminal activities again. When Sam wants to stop everything and Narong threatens his family… Sam will cross Thailand to take revenge on his executioner”.
