Nice and bloody entrance to Thai history
8 February 2005 | by (Caen, EU) – See all my reviews

Despite I studied history many years, we had no time studying South Asia's own history, so I was pleased to learn a bit while being tetanized with the action ! Let me tell you, it's clear enough that Thai are very proud of Bang Rajan's Buddhist monk, strong men (and even women) amazing resistance against cruel Birman.

This Thai big movie is as far from, says, Chinese than from European or Hollywood super productions, which is something I find valuable.

As for the technical part, quantumcat has already written what could be said on it. That's : a bit of confusion and low level special effects, that may be because of *my* point of view or real. You'll see by yourself.
