Beyond my expectation for this little gem, 6 September 2007
Author: ilovetoseethemovie from Thailand

At first, I thought this film was connected around martial action with some revenge among protagonists in its usual kind. However, after having finished watching it, this film is far beyond my expectation for this kind of film I have seen in years since I find my accessibility to this film quite unique.

Although sequences of "Chaiya" boxing are well-choreographed and living up to acrobatic movement by its standard type of fighting, its plot is also satisfactory with subtle and multi-layered storyline, that makes some predictable ending to be easily ignored. The drama in this film, which depicts the lives of three male friends since beginning till the finale, is not that much saturated, but full of fluidity, instead. And that's the reason why the storyline emotionally affects and paves the good way for little twist, at the end, of why each protagonist has later shattered their friendship. Well-woven mixture between drama and martial bout definitely needs laurel. Additionally, besides the director sparking off his promising career, the performances, by many leading actors and supporting actresses, also do a commendable job. At last, cinematography, back to old-time Bangkok metropolis, is yet a joy to watch.

Hope, when this film is globally screened, the foreign audience will see how magnificent it is. Highly recommended for this little gem.
