I enjoyed this movie.
21 September 2001 | by (WA, USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie with my girlfriend while I was in Thailand. While it was very fast paced, it kept my attention the whole 3 hours. I do not speak Thai, so I had to rely on the subtitles. This may be why I thought some of the dialog and acting was a bit wooden. I was most impressed with the actors surrounding the title character. Suriyothai seemed one dimensional while the other characters, especially the evil consort were much more interesting. 8/10.
