BKO BANGKOK KNOCKOUT is the cure for the common face kick.

BKO: BANGKOK KNOCKOUT is ACTION ACTION ACTION!!! Two shows only this weekend!!!

When our own Tim League and Zack Carlson got back from Action Fest a few months back they talked about a lot of the films thay'd seen, but they showed such evident joy when talking about one particular film that I immediately made a mental note that I had to see BKO: BANGKOK KNOCKOUT. It's a film with one thing on its mind: ACTION at all costs. The expert Thai martial artists who make up the cast of BKO weren't terribly concerned with character motivation or emotional resonance. They came to fight and fight and fight some more. The whole movie is mainly a giant ball of FIGHT perched atop a sliver of premise and we like it that way.

Thanks to our friends at Magnet Films, who, by the way, have seriously become the go-to company for the cutting edge of international action and horror titles, we'll be screening BKO: BANGKOK KNOCKOUT this Friday and Saturday at Lamar. Admission is 100% free to Fantastic Fest 2011 badgeholders, just get there 30 minutes before showtime and tell them who you are at the door, everyone else has to pay, but believe me, it's worth it.

Don't plan on sleeping for about 6 hours after you see it though. It's face kickingly outrageous!

Action Action Action!  BKO: BANGKOK KNOCKOUT plays Alamo South Lamar at 10:55pm on Friday and Saturday night.  Don't miss it.
