Pretty good martial arts flick
2 June 2013 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

From the director of Ong-bak, The Protector and Chocolate comes this Thai/Korean co-production. A family of taekwondo instructors living in Bangkok foils a group of smugglers after they steal a priceless Thai artifact. The gangsters target the family and turn the tables on them, forcing them to steal back the artifact. JeeJa Yanin (of Chocolate fame) shows up about forty minutes into the film and helps the family kick butt. She's as awesome as ever. The teenage son of the family (I think the actor's name is Kyung-suk Kim) is an awesome martial artist - in the film he does a combination of taekwondo and hip-hop dancing, looking kind of similar to capoeira. I'd love to see this kid star in more movies, perhaps more of them with JeeJa. The action is often awesome in this flick, though I could have done without all the CGI (in particular the awful CGI crocodiles). This film never showed up in Region 1, though it's been on the internet for a couple of years (as have subtitles).
