Director: Rehan Malik

Release Date: 23 September 2021



In Bangkok Breaking, Sukollawat Kanarot, Sushar Manaying, Daweerit Chullaspya, and Pavarit Mongkolpisit star alongside other cast members in an action-crime-thriller series created by Rehan Malik. Bangkok Breaking is a Thai action-crime-thriller series created by Rehan Malik that premiered on Thai television in 2012. The series comprises six episodes, each of which is approximately one hour in length.

The following is how Netflix describes the show

A man who is struggling to make a living in Bangkok joins an emergency rescue service and soon realizes that he must unravel a citywide conspiracy in order to survive.

An intense chase sequence, an accident, and a number of horrifying deaths set the tone for Bangkok Breaking. The chain reaction is nothing short of shocking to witness, and it serves as an excellent introduction to the six-episode series.

Wanchai is the main character in this story. He has traveled to Bangkok in order to meet his brother Jo and to earn money for his family back home in the Philippines. However, things go horribly wrong for him, and he becomes embroiled in a city-wide conspiracy as a result of his actions.

Does not make any sense

Despite the fact that Bangkok Breaking is a confusing, boring, and mysterious series, There are times when the series doesn’t make a whole lot of sense and things just happen without explanation. On the other hand, there are moments when it appears as if the series is about to reveal something truly shocking. Lots of blood and gore are on display, and the practical effects are outstanding. The plot, on the other hand, is a little shaky, and you’ll find yourself skipping through a lot of it.

Bangkok Breaking’s problem is that it tries to incorporate an excessive number of moving cogs, making it difficult to keep track of them all simultaneously. And, of course, almost all of them are motivated by nefarious motives and have deeper significance. It’s not the worst thing in the world, but it can get a little overwhelming at times.

Poor detailing of characters

The character of Wanchai, who is untrained and does not know much about rescue work, appears in a scene where he simply dons a firefighter outfit and rushes into a burning building to save people. It is not only completely fantastical, but it is also completely improbable. He then passes out as soon as he arrives. Listen, being a hero is admirable, but doing so at the expense of the rescue workers is counterproductive.

In any case, Bangkok Breaking focuses on various aspects of rescue work, including how unscrupulous individuals take advantage of a disaster. It also raises the question of who is correct and who is incorrect in a stressful situation such as Wanchai’s. The authors also included the point of view of how poverty causes people to do things that they would not normally do. However, it fails to create the necessary mystery in an acceptable manner. We were able to shiver in our seats because of the series’ ability to make us feel uncomfortable. However, I found myself becoming increasingly disinterested in what was going on.

Our protagonists, Sukollawat Kanarot and Sushar Manaying, as well as the supporting cast, are, however, quite good in their respective roles. The majority of them are natural and appear and feel like they belong. Kanarot and Manaying also have strong on-screen chemistry, and it’s a pleasure to watch them interact. In addition, the cinematography and editing are excellent.

Bangkok Breaking had the potential to be a fantastic show. To be completely honest, I wanted it to be so exciting that I wouldn’t be able to take my feet off the edge of the seat. Unfortunately, I found myself becoming increasingly disinterested in the series for long stretches of time. Of course, there are still plenty of redeeming qualities to be found. So it’s possible that some of it will be your cup of tea!
