Ryan Gosling wants a fight in first red-band trailer for Nicolas Winding Refn’s ‘Only God Forgives’

only god forgives



It has been a long time coming, but finally the full length red-band trailer is here for Only God Forgives, the second teaming up of director Nicolas Winding Refn and actor Ryan Gosling.

Is it as good as I hoped? Damn right it is, it is even better. While it is quite short, running at just a minute and a half, it is full of Refn’s trademark style and quality, with a cool soundtrack and some ultra violence. Gosling, yet again, looks absolutely brilliant here, and his casual “do you wanna a fight” remark come the end is actually quite chilling.

Only God Forgives is written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. The violent revenge thriller stars Ryan Gosling, Kristin Scott Thomas, Tom Burke, Vithaya Pansringarm and Yayaying.


Ten years ago in Bangkok Julian killed a cop and went on the run. Now he manages a Thai boxing club as a front for a drugs operation. Respected in the criminal underworld, deep inside, he feels empty.

When Julian’s brother kills a prostitute, the police reaches out to retired cop Chang, known as the Angel of Vengeance. Chang allows the father to kill his daughters murderer, then restores order by chopping off the man’s right hand.

Julian’s mother Jenna, the head of a powerful criminal organization, arrives in Bangkok to collect her son’s body. She orders Julian to find his killers and raise hell.

Increasingly obsessed with the Angel of Vengeance, Julian challenges him to a boxing match, hoping that by defeating him he might find spiritual release but Chang triumphs. A furious Jenna plots revenge and the stage is set for a bloody journey through betrayal and vengeance towards a final confrontation and the possibility of redemption.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
