Not Too Bad
7 February 2011 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

Despite certain other "reviews", this movie is NOT Taiwanese, it is Thai, Thailand and Taiwan are a long way apart, certainly in distance if not in culture.

If you expect to see any Thai movies that are based on Western precepts, then you will be decidedly disappointed.

Belief in ghosts, black magic is normal in Thailand, ridiculous scenarios (to us Westerners) seem perfectly logical to Thais.

It is a movie with its faults like many movies, it is not by any means perfect.

But these sort of movies should be viewed with a bit of a different perspective to the multi million Spielberg Hollywood trash, generally, most Thai movies seem to be either slapstick ranting and screaming, whereas once in a while you will find a more reasonable stance, at least you can watch this without cringing.

If you watch these movies, you really need to expect to have all logic turned on its head regarding what you are generally used to.

Not my cup of tea, but better than so many from here.
