I don't know how the guys behind the films Ong Bak, Warrior King and Chocolate keep coming up with exciting, enthralling films but they do.
Okay the story is a little corny and schmaltzy but it does enough to make you engage with the characters to care what happens to them.
Likewise when I first imagined children taking on adults you can't help but thinking "really, won't it be them just stamping on feet like some awful Home Alone series".
Far from it, these kids know how to fight and even the biggest man can fall from a well placed knee in the nether regions or an elbow right under the chin.
The fighting is just amazing including a final sequence in a tight hallway which is balletic and breathtaking and a sequence after that which will have you clapping, laughing and gasping in it's intensity and invention.
Fabulous entertainment and proof that these guys really know how to show us proper fighting. Great fun.
