One of the few Thai good movies
9 March 2012 | by (Quebec) – See all my reviews

When you look at Thai Martial Arts movies, you know what to expect in almost every films... Excellent brutal fight scenes, extremely Craptastic unoriginal storyline. I have watch almost everything when it comes to the 90s American martial arts industry, so i had to look elsewhere for entertaining. I must say American flicks are not very original either, but i love the classic formula of "get beaten down by the bad guy, train, come back" or the other famous formula of "get revenge for your brother/friend's murder" But when it comes to Thai movies, its almost always about some artifact of a small village that got stolen and our hero has to go after it. Or sometimes its even worse... It started with Tony Jaa, and i did love Ong Bak and The protector for there awesome fights, but after that i saw many movies with the same formula and lesser fight scenes.

But with Cheiya, this is not the case at all. For once i saw a Thai movie that made me felt something, like those Korean or Japanese movies, in the vain of Fighter in the Wind.

This movie tells the story of 3 boys went to the same place by extremely different roads. I got to admit some parts seem a bit exaggerated and this movie is not perfect, but its extremely interesting, i loved following the story, i loved the characters, and i hope future Thai movies will be in that style. The whole "artifact stolen" has got very old...
