Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) and Ryan Gosling (The Place Beyond the Pines) reunite in the highly acclaimed Only God Forgives - a stylish, mesmerising and thrilling journey through Bangkok's criminal underworld.
Julian (Gosling) runs a boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. He has everything he wants for and is respected in the criminal underworld though, deep inside, he feels empty.
When Julian's brother is murdered, his mother (Kristin Scott Thomas, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen) - the head of a powerful criminal organization - arrives in Bangkok to collect her son's body. Furious with grief, she dispatches Julian to find his killers and 'raise hell'.
The stage is set for a bloody journey of betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.
Hailed as 'mesmeric, mad, brutal and brilliant' by The Guardian, Only God Forgives is a twisted, breathtaking, neon-drenched fairytale that you'll never forget.

review: The trailor for this movie leads you to think there would be more gritty action than there actualy is. I found the acting to be good but I had one major problem with the way it was directed and edited but first I will talk about the acting. The acting from ryan if you can call it acting is basicly pointless, you could pay anyone to stand through the entire movie with hardly any thing to say and stare blankly at every thing, it was like watching a man at a interview who has nothing to say. He moved from scene to scene and only said a few lines in between when he needed and even then it was 1 liners. Kristin Scott Thomas had the most lines of the movie worth remembering and her acting was very good and made me enjoy the movie a little more. Another actor who made the movie enjoyable too watch is the so called bad guy of the movie, the guy with the sword. The main issue for me with this movie is the long drawn out scene to scene with very little action and even less talking, it was basicly like watching scenes of a movie with a music back track for 1:29 min. The movie needed to be edited and shorten to make the pace better or at least increase the tempo of the movie but it didn't it just moved along from scene to scene with only a few scenes worth watching. The soundtrack gave a very good tense feeling through out but even that cant help this movie and I fail to see what the critics or raving on about with this movie. overall: This is a hard to watch movie, not because of its so called violence but because of its bad pacing and very little to show for it. It is like watching a 9 round boxing match where all they do is jab and hug only for the result to be a draw. The only reason I managed to watch it all was because of Kristin Scott Thomas and Vithaya Pansringarm because lets face it, ryan for this movie just stared blankly at the camera and people through out the entire movie with hardly anything to say (completely pointless) 5/10.
