The skills of the cast deserve a better film than this, 17 November 2013
Author: bob the moo from United Kingdom

A family of South Korean martial artists are on their way to a tournament when they inadvertently get involved in a plot to steal an ancient knife that is priceless but, if I had to put a price on it, I'd say it was worth about US$33million. Anyway, hailed as heroes for their intervention, the family find themselves the target of the gang when they come looking for revenge.

Having been really impressed by Jija Yanin Mitananda in Chocolate I had sought out other films with her in it – and the trailer for this one looked very good indeed. The reason for this is of course but it is full of clips of great physical feats and thankfully it is representative of the film in that it does have plenty of action and much of it very impressive. The skills of the main cast members is impressive and there are a few very well choreographed sequences. Problem is that the film itself is pretty poor and, while some of the action compensates for this, it really isn't what they deserve. The plot is weak and makes almost no sense. The delivery of the comedy is poor and the use of music is roundly terrible – particularly a fight sequence where a character "dances" his way through the villains. There are lots of things like this and it hurts the film – and I felt it even more when the really cool move or sequence came along to remind me what it was capable of.

In terms of performances it is hard for me to judge because I watched a dubbed version. As with Chocolate I did love Yanin – she is stunning but physically her abilities are amazing, she really needs a film that can support her. Wongkamlao was pretty funny here – previous films I have not always liked him but here he worked as comic relief. Korean Lee is a decent villain if you ignore that his character's motivations make pretty much no sense but his bodyguards were good. The rest of the family are mixed but I liked the son, daughter and mother characters – the father and cute kid I could have done without.

A weak film then, but one that contains some great physical sequences – so good in fact that they really deserve a film that is better than this one.
