They have awoken an ancient animal which hibernates for more than ten thousand years. The army has to use the troops to block the construction site of the subway in order to detain the monster. The special soldiers are sent to fight with the monster. Even with their hi-tech military hardware, they are still unable to stop the monster. The mythological monster, a garuda, escapes from the tunnel, and begins to terrorize the city of Bangkok. Written by Anonymous

Mythical beast or flying turkey?
18 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

A huge part-mythical part-prehistoric beast with a beak and feathered wings is unearthed during the construction of the Bangkok subway, and although the feisty heroine who shares a bond with it is the subject of an interesting subplot concerning Thai racism, this is a pretty disappointing monster-on-the-loose pic that only picks up in its climactic battle with the army. Flashy edits and lighting effects can't sort out the bad pacing or the pantomime acting from the male leads.

Still, you want to give this first Thai monster movie goodwill points for coming up with a new beast, even if he does look like a mutant parrot and is given nothing to do except scream and stomp about.
