"Khon fai bin" can be described as an action packed movie like "Born to Fight" mixed with fantasy elements! The main character uses Muay Thai and rockets as his main weapons! The main villain uses magic like protection spells and some form of telekinesis! The action scenes are very enjoyable and nicely choreographed! Although it is obvious that the main character is more of a stuntman than a martial artist! In that aspect it fails to reach the level of "Ong-Bak" or "Tom yum goong"! I think it was a brilliant move to place the movie in a 1890's setting! It gives a different perspective on Thailand! The background music is traditional and original! The humor can be a bit much! After having seen several Thai movies I have learned that this sort of humor is typical! If you give it a chance you will get used to this type of humor! Note: From the copy I watched the subtitles were very badly translated! But still it wasn't difficult to follow the story! "Khon fai bin" is entertaining! What more do you want!
