Action star Tony Jaa‘s year has gotten off to an exciting start now that his debut Hollywood role in Furious 7 is circulating globally. It’s just the first of three movies he will be appearing in this year so far with his second, director Ekachai Uekrongtham‘s international action thriller, Skin Trade, poised to release this month as well. That’s two in one month, making it an awesome time to be a Jaa fan if there ever was.
New Jersey detective, Nick Cassidy (Dolph Lundgren) heads to Bangkok where he teams up with Thai detective, Tony Vitayakui (Tony Jaa) to hunt down Viktor Dragovic (Ron Perlman) and destroy his human trafficking network. Nick had inadvertently killed 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 Tony traverse their way through the Bangkok underworld in search of the elusive Dragovic. Meanwhile, FBI Agent Eddie Reed (Michael Jai White) is sent in to bring Nick home. But as the crossfire ensues, Nick has to determine who his true allies are.
