New Jersey detective Nick Cassidy had inadvertently killed Serbian mobster 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 Thai cop Tony traverse their way through the Bangkok underworld in search of the elusive Dragovic and put a stop to his human trafficking operation.

The Good, the Bad and the Trade:

• The idea of pairing up an action star with a martial arts star is interesting but the execution does not do it justice, especially for Tony Jaa who is reduced to sidekick status next to Dolph Lundgren.

• The film tries to be serious with its message on human trafficking but it feels out of place in its mostly action-fuelled sequences.

• But this film is still great for anyone who just wants to (barely) see the fast-striking arms and legs flying and kicking everywhere.

Trivia:

• Dolph Lundgren read a newspaper article on human trafficking and wrote the script in 2006-2007, before 2008's "Taken" came out or was produced.
