A good movie
12 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was a great movie in regards to the martial arts and basic plot line, but some of the situations in the movie were a bit senseless. Some of the antics of the younger sister are slightly annoying. While I'm a long time martial arts action film fan and I understand they don't all come with the greatest plots or character developments. I would have liked to seem some redemption in the youngest sister during a particular portion of the film where it was obviously a great place for her character development.

Regardless of that, this is a fun movie to watch. The fight scenes are pretty light hearted as well as the storyline. Everything is choreographed well. Sasisa Jindamanee does a great job as the tougher and a bit more sensitive sister. While I didn't particularly care for Nawarat Techarathanaprasert's character, she did a good job in her role. Nathan Jones does a good job as a clumsy gentle giant. Overall, everyone handles their roles well and it makes for an entertaining film.
