Proving westerners can be Tony Jaa
26 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Please allow me to get one thing out of the way right from the start: If what Eli Roth makes is what people like to call "torture porn", then this film might as well be "action porn"...doing away with any pretense of a plot in the name of action sequences. It's certainly a bit lacking in story, but who cares? There's a very, very good chance you weren't watching this for the plot twists and deep philosophical implications. And that's just great, because everything besides the story is pretty badass.

The basic plot is 4 friends (all inexplicably with different accents) travel to Thailand and run afoul of some criminals while gambling. Two of the friends have some pretty wicked martial arts skills, one is enormous, and the other is...well...he's pretty much just some useless hippie-looking guy. Then there's a whole kidnapping thing that reminded me The Big Hit, but again, this movie is just a vehicle for pure, unadulterated violence. This, apparently, the only way Thais know how to make action movies (and I love them for it). As per usual with modern Thai martial arts movies the stunts and action scenes are very well done and...wait...was there any other reason to watch this movie? In any event, it's massive amounts of fun provided you don't expect it to be a thinking man's movie. Just sit back, open a beer (or 6) and enjoy.
