A supernatural blast of action and fighting...
29 March 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Demon Warrior" (or "Opapatika") was an interesting movie in different ways. Especially because of the supernatural aspect to it combined with the level of action and martial arts there were in it.

Story-wise, then "Demon Warrior" sort of halters. And by that I don't mean that it is a bad storyline, far from it, but that the movie is not driven by the story, but driven by the action and fighting primarily. Plus I found the whole 'suicide is a mortal sin' lecture a bit pretentious and lecturing, bordering on being religious propaganda.

But moving on. The story is about Taesit who commits suicide and is thus turned into an opapatika. He is recruited by another opapatika to track down other opapatikas, but this is not an easy task. Opapatikas hold superhuman abilities and senses, living out their cursed existences amongst mortals on our world.

I will say that the opapatika abilities were interesting and the movie did entertain, although it had a fairly weak storyline. The action and fighting in "Demon Warrior" was off the charts - as it usually is with Thai action movies. And it was from the producers of "Ong Bak", so thumbs up for the action here. One thing did annoy me in the movie, was the constant sound of a growling big cat (lion, tiger, or whatever) there was around some of the opapatikas. It was more of a nuisances than it was a flavor that helped the movie along in any way.

The effects in "Demon Warrior" were quite good as well. And what the movie lacks in a solid story line it more than makes up for in brutal action, blood and violence.

"Demon Warrior" combines elements from the action genre and dark fantasy genre quite well. Sort of think the "Supernatural" series, just added with a heap of action and more interesting supernatural beings. If you enjoy Thai movies, then "Demon Warrior" is definitely worth watching.
