Well, i'm impressed. This film and others like it give me hope that Thai/South east Asian movies are trying to recreate the magic of 80s Hong kong action flicks. Its a good attempt too. Lets get down to the nitty gritty though.
As you'd probably expect the story and the acting is laughable. Feels like an amateur college production, but who cares right? We're here for the action?..... wrong. There's a little too much of the bad acting and terrible comedy for my liking.
However when the action finally shows up every now and again, it's a pretty good effort. I'll stress that its not perfect in my opinion (having watched a lot of martial arts flicks). My biggest gripe is the directing. The camera work is shoddy on the most part, flicking between limbs and not showing many stunt falls in one take.
I'd definitely recommend this film after a night out. Grab a few beers and laugh. At least they're trying to make real action, something we don't see a lot of these day. A+ for effort!
