A fun family martial arts romp, 17 October 2011
Author: jake-cobra from New york

This movie really isn't a great movie in the sense of acting or directing. But it is a throw back to the genuine family fun movies of the 90's. It has action that is for the most part decent and characters who you really start to enjoy a few minutes into it all. It's not the best movie to sit back and appreciate as a milestone for cinema, but if you're having a bad day it will definitely cheer you up. Looking for the next movie to go into your top 5 favorite movies, look elsewhere. But for fun and silliness, Muay Thai Giant might be what you're looking for. I can tell though, this isn't Scorsese or Tarantino level cinema, just sit back with the kids or a few friends who don't mind feeling like they're a kid again and ENJOY
