Martial arts movie for the kids...
21 April 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

When I picked up this movie from Amazon, I was under the impression that it was going to be a movie in the likes of Ong Bak and Warrior King, I had no idea that it was going to be a family-like fighting movie with children. And the DVD cover with Johnny Nguyen on the cover was sort of misleading as he wasn't really the lead actor or main character.

But still, as a family movie, then "Force of Five" actually was rather good. It had a nice story, that was a bit too unreal, but still a nice enough story at heart (no pun intended). And the children in the movie were actually doing a rather amazing display of athletics, martial arts and stunts. And watching these kids in action, there is a very likely possibility that we will see more of them in the future, because they did really great with the action and fighting.

"Force of Five" also had the worst possible acting performance I have ever had the pleasure of watching. Richard William Lord plays a drunken bully in this movie, and wow, oh my God, wow! That was horrible. That performance had me curling my toes in disbelief. But I guess that was sort of the comical relief in the movie. Him, and then the Japanese old guy who came to Thailand to study Muy Thai, though the Japanese actor wasn't bad.

I think that "Force of Five" will go straight to heart (again, no pun intended) with a younger audience - say children or teens - because the movie was lacking some appeal for a mature audience. Don't get me wrong, I did enjoy the movie, though I think had I been a young kid or a teen, then I would have enjoyed the movie all the better.

If you like Thai martial arts movie, and got 113 minutes to spare, then "Force of Five" is well worth a watch if you have nothing better on your schedule.
