When a highly volatile case confronts the police, a young maverick cop with mystical powers is put on the case. YOSTHANA teams up with the seductive DUANGDAO, and together they must hunt down and capture the brutal and deadly 'FIVE BULLETS BANDIT'. The gang is led by the fearsome, MAHESAK, who, like Yosthana is skilled in the art of sorcery and magic. Mahesak can only be defeated with The Tiger Blade, a magical and ancient sword, replete with the powers of nature, and the forces of good. Yosthana must find the Tiger Blade, and bring Mahesak to justice, before the bandits bring total chaos to the city. The stage is set for a gruesome battle between the two nemeses, but only one can survive. Written by
Random action sequences and absolutely no story...
"The Tiger Blade" ("Seua Khaap Daap") is essentially an action movie that is completely and utterly devoid of a coherent storyline. Wait, let me correct that, devoid of a storyline all together.
Throughout most of the movie the audience is given various action sequences that seems to make no sense in a coherent red thread, and actually seems like they were action sequences just for the solely purpose of being action sequences. Fair is fair, and I will say that some of these action sequences were actually good enough to look at, but that doesn't make it up for a complete lack of proper storyline.
The acting in the movie, well, it was just equally devoid as the storyline. It seemed that the actors and actresses were equally baffled about the lack of story, and as such had very little to work with.
And people say action movies are mindless, well I guess those people are quite right in regards to this particular movie.
For a Thai action movie, then "The Tiger Blade" seems rather pointless and less than half-hearted. There are far better Thai action movies available, and I can't think of a reason for recommending this movie to anyone, except if you have absolutely nothing else to watch and just want to see some random action and violence sequences.
