Not the actual history
17 July 2014 | by (Peterborough, Great Britain) – See all my reviews

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.
