Storyline

Seven ex-soldiers are hired to rob a group of American GIs' trucks, under the misguided notion that these trucks contain a wealth of treasures. They successfully seize the trucks, only to find that there's nothing precious within. A troop of fully-armed, brutal, not to mention racist GIs, led by Peter, is now after them. At the same time, their former superior (in charge of seven) is tracking down a cargo of dangerous chemicals and he asks for their help. They reluctantly agree, and their personal conflict is turned into an action-packed confrontation fought and waged for the sake of one thing only: their country. Written by Anonymous

Action comedy has insights into Thai culture
14 September 2004 | by erichfleshmanSee all my reviews

The film "7 Prajaanbaan" is a delightful watch for those who have an understanding about Thai culture and its' traditions. This feature shows the lighter side of some of the more serious aspects of Thai society combined with the threat of evil soldiers willing to exploit the locals.

The film has an interesting cast made up of accomplished actors, Thai rock and folk singers, models, comedians, and an American actor who speaks fluent Thai language. Pongpat Wachirabunjong is one of the most diverse actors in Thailand plays the lead. Pongpat similar, to Mufune of Japanese films fame has a nack for choosing interesting roles.

Although the editing and shooting is a bit choppy it has great comedy relief with bit roles by diverse talents. The bar scene with muay thai and American g.i.'s, the friendship pact, and the cremation ceremony are all quite harsh in reality but the film sees it in a new lighter way. Don't take it seriously.
