Kazu Patrick Tang,
Based on a true historic figure during Ayothaya Era, the film depicts the life of Yamada Nagamasa, a Japanese adventurer who gained considerable influence in Thailand and became the governor of Nakhon Si Thammarat province in southern Thailand. Written by
A thin plot strings together a series of martial-arts displays.
The boxing looks realistic, I assume this is real Thai Boxing as it actually occurs. But the sword-fighting is improbably one-sides.
A brief depiction of a border war is ridiculous.
The highly interesting politics of the time is entirely ignored. Both the internal conflicts and the role of the Dutch are wholly ignored. It was a kingdom that often had civil wars and which was finally destroyed by the Burmese.
The Japanese settlement was also interesting, including both Christian rebels and some of the losers from the wars which established the Tokugawa shoguns. All ignored.
The real life of Yamada Nagamasa would make an excellent film, but this is not it.
