This movie was one very good "Ass Kicking" Roller Coast ride of Martial Arts. The Music, Choreography, Historic Period, and Costumes were all 100% Japanese and Thai. I especially enjoyed that awesome Japanese Jazz song with the very large drums that played near the beginning of the movie, but wait! The Thai fighters were serious about their work and exceptional athletes that could kick your butt from the most amazing angles. I'm looking forward to seeing more movies like this one.
As a Kung Fu fan I was totally caught off guard by this movie because I had no idea that "Thai Fighting" was so amazing and artistic.
The acting was very good for a martial arts movie and wasn't overshadowed by the "Bad Ass Martial Arts moves". Thai Martial Arts communicates a rather poetic means of kicking someone's butt and I really dig it.
I believe I'm hooked and will go on a Thai Martial Arts Binge for the next couple of years.
Meanwhile my girly wife also enjoyed the movie and appreciated the very artistic opening credits as well as the cinematic visuals that occurred throughout the whole movie.
Thanks for an "Outstanding Movie" and keeping hope alive for good martial arts flicks!
P.S. I told my wife that I wanted a sweet little girl like the one in the movie.
