Not bad...not awesome...enjoyable, 22 July 2013
Author: Daniel Rodrigues from Portugal

First of all, there's one thing that can be unpleasant for some viewers...the badly "forced" English... This is a Thai-French movie, and would be better off spoken in thai and in french...

The story is not original. A man "runs"away from his homeland, to another country, to start again, from scratch, after a few problems back home. In the process he meets with Yo, a thai young man, and, after some quarrels, they start a very strong friendship... They soon find out the life in an underground cage fighting circuit, and that's it, that's the "story" so far (the rest is up to you, to see it).

The movie is filled with action, with lots and lots of beautiful stunts, and some unexpected plot twists. Both main characters are great athletes, and perform some exciting moves.

This movie is not top-notch state of the art, but still, is one hell of an enjoyable flick to see in a weekend :-)

Try it...
