Three young lives from the present are mysteriously destined to travel back in time through a portal to an old forgotten city. It is an era of civil war among the people of Siam where the fight is to protect the capital city of Ayuthaya from being conquered and overthrown. Bloodshed is about to unfold among the small group of villagers loyal to their land and prepared to battle to the death with the opposing military troops of Ong Mien, known for their cut throat, piercing swords. Siyama led by, Kru Jom, uses religious sorcery to protect his small village located amidst a ravine populated by only a mere one thousand villagers and two hundred rooftops. By being the choice of passage towards the capital city of Ayuthaya, Siyama becomes a targeted obstacle for the gruesome military brigade of Ong Mien. Anna, Gif, and Bote from present day Bangkok are thrown into a gateway through time after coincidentally conversing about the history of warfare that took place in the ancient days of what...

nice little fantasy flick worth the entire running time of 100 minutes
the story evolves around 3 teens that are destined to travel back in time to save a village from a ruthless invader Ong Mien which will stop at nothing to accomplish his miserable goal. The surprise comes after about 20 minutes into the movie, when we see the actual time travelling of these teens as their car makes a spectacular touch-down in the middle of the on-going battle between the siyama villagers trying to defend their village and the ruthless invader (not much of an invader but you will see that as you watch the movie)as their enemy. The special effects are descent, don't expect anything fancy, but the story of the film as well as pretty nice shots the camera caught surely makes up for their fanciness. Also the choreography (the fight scenes) are well done. Overall the movie is made up of some 75 % action pretty well done in terms of choreography (not the kind that keeps you on the edge of your seat, for mostly it is predictable) but still on a B/B- level, some 3 % romance and the rest counts for the story's introduction and of course, the end of the movie which is quite nice.There is one moment in the film where you might expect one thing to happen but due to certain....circumstances the entire story takes on a whole different turn which helps in the outcome of the picture. For obvious reasons I will not reveal what that moment is. Watch the movie and you will see what I mean. I rate this picture an 8/10 mostly because of the overall story and the performances of the characters which i didn't find as being overly-done. They kept true to their roles and took them heartedly.
