Vanquisher to take stab at U.K. DVD sales in October

Women wielding swords, waving guns, showing off cleavage and leaping around in wire-assisted stunts is what Vanquisher (สวย ซามูไร, Suay Samurai) has to offer.

And Showbox Media thinks that's something that action fans in the U.K. will want to watch. It's due out on Region 2 DVD on October 11.

Directed by Manop Udomdej, the action drama is about a Thai secret service agent codenamed Vanquisher (Sophita Sribanchean) who is left for dead after a top-secret mission goes wrong. But she survives and is determined to seek vengeance.

She gets help from another agent, played by "Nui" Kessarin Ektawatkul from Born to Fight and Dangerous Flowers. The two woman form an alliance to fight a female rogue CIA agent, played by Jacqueline Apithananont from Queens of Langkasuka and The Bodyguard 2. Saranyu Wongkrachang and Pete Thongchua also star.

Released last year, the film's production troubles included the cutting of scenes by actress "Amy" Chotiros Suriyawong, after she wore a scandalously revealing dress to present the Suphanahongsa Awards in 2007. Censors also ordered the removal of a politically sensitive scene invoving gunmen opening fire into a mosque.
