The Kick - A treat To Martial Art Lovers from Prachya Pinkaew
22 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Moon is a Taekwondo master migrates from South Korea to Thailand with his five family members.

One day, Moon's family encounters a group of treasure thieves on the street, and are soon involved in a fight with them. With their impressive martial art skills, Moon's family is able to defeat the thieves and take back the stolen treasure. Pom, the leader of the gang, is the only one to escape and threatens revenge.

Moon's family becomes more popular in the public eye, not knowing when or where Pom will get his revenge.

The actions scenes are top-notch as always you see in any Prachya Pinkaew film. However, this lacks in the story and screenplay part. The comic relief is an advantage amongst the fast paced punches and kicks. Special mention to Tae-joo Na (Tae Yang), Kyung-suk Kim (Tae Mi ) and Jeeja Yamin (Wawa from Chocolate -2008, she has already impressed with her martial arts skills).

It really creates havoc when comes to fights and will keep up you engaged if you really love these kinds of films.

You need to watch it to the credits and you will know the real hard work of these actors.

Recommended for all action lovers. My Vote 6/10
