Mediocre but not awful, 12 August 2011
Author: andymcc_80 from United Kingdom

I watch quite a few foreign language films(from all over the world), and find that many of the most original and entertaining films being made today are not coming from Hollywood. Korea is producing some astounding drama/action films and Vietnam and Thailand are making some of the best out and out action films of the last few years. Tony Jaa opened the worlds eyes to the type of films that haven't been made since the early days of Jackie Chan, Chocolate showed that female leads can match or outdo many male stars in the genre. I say all this because going into Bay Rong I had hoped the film would be a combination of the best bits of Asian cinema, sadly I was disappointed. The acting is not really all that bad but as someone else has mentioned feels like it belongs in a soap opera at times. If the action is good I can overlook some bad acting, I'm thinking of the Warrior King and the brutal fight scenes it had but dire acting. This film never seems to reach the heights(or depths) that would make it stand out, the action isn't bad but it isn't great either, the fights felt very choreographed and didn't have the brutal and dangerous feel of films like Ong Bak or Merantau. I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone but at the same time there are far worse films out there. If you like Asian cinema and can see it cheaply it might be worth seeing, I gave it 5 out of 10, I didn't hate it but didn't love it either.
