The translation of the Thai title means literally '5 Heart Heroes'. Four children sneak into a terrorist-controlled hospital to steal a heart to transplant for the 5th child who is dying in a different hospital. Written by
Produced by Prachya Pinkaew, who directed Ong-bak and Chocolate, two of the better martial arts films of the past decade. This one definitely doesn't measure up to those. It's about a group of kids who fight a bunch of terrorists who have taken a hospital hostage. They want to get a new heart for their dying younger brother. The story is ridiculously schmaltzy and the kids are cruddy actors. They're not bad martial artists, though. The (very short) film is almost worth watching just for the climactic fight, part of which takes place in a very thin hallway that allows the kids and their adult nemesis to bounce off the walls like crazy. It seems like the movie would be ideal for kids, but it gets far too violent, with the kids constantly being shot at with AK47s.
