The storyline got lost amidst the 82 minutes of constant fighting...
10 August 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Rebirth" (aka "Bangkok Revenge") is a rather mindless and pointless action movie - with heavy emphasis on action.

The story in the movie is about a boy whose father is killed and the boy himself is shot in the head. But miraculously he survives, and loses the ability to feel anything. Growing up, he learns martial arts (of course, what else should he do?) and he ends up having to fight for the truth of what happened on that fateful day.

Right, the story here is as hollow and simplistic as it gets, to the point where it is just embarrassing, and I suppose director Jean-Marc Minéo had to put in something that resembled a storyline to justify making this prolonged fighting sequence into an actual movie.

The action sequences and fighting sequences, however, are plenty and abundant, and the movie is basically just one long fight, as no matter where Manit goes he has to fight someone. It is just a bit too idiotic, but from an action-viewpoint, then the movie does deliver. However, there is nothing new or breathtaking here, that haven't already been seen in other martial arts movies, such as "Ong Bak" or "The Raid: Redemption". But still, if you enjoy fighting and martial arts, there is lots of it here in this movie.

As for taking place in Thailand, I just don't understand why a young Thai boy would grow up to speak that kind of British English, and used only very little Thai. It was just stupid and made absolutely no sense. If anything, it just took away the illusion that the audience were to believe that Jon Foo had to pass for a Thai.

In conclusion, then "Rebirth" is a story fully devoid of plot and coherency, and is basically just one fight after another from start to end. The movie lets you turn off your brain and just go into autopilot. "Rebirth" offers nothing challenging from the audience, and as hard as it tried, then even the constant fighting couldn't keep up the entertainment or enjoyment of the movie, and essentially ended up becoming too much to bear witness to.

If you enjoy Asian martial arts movies, your money is better spent elsewhere. The 3 out of 10 rating I am giving the movie is solely because of the action and fighting - the rest of the movie was just pointless and irrelevant.
