muddy jungle fun with elephants
28 May 2014 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Set in 1431, the Ayutthaya Kingdom is expanding east into the Sukhothai kingdom. Young Tien witnesses the massacre of his family by the vile Lord Rajasena. He is taken by slave traders and eventually saved by Chernang, the leader of the Garuda Wing Cliff who teaches him to fight. Tien (Tony Jaa) would grow up to be a powerful fighter. First he takes revenge on the cruel slave traders. Then he infiltrates Lord Rachasana's ranks as he looks for the opportunity to avenge his family.

I love that this is going into the muddy jungle. I love the elephants. I love the look of it. What I don't love is the story or the construction of the story. It is hard to figure out sometimes who the characters are. The movie starts off a little confused. It may be that story is not what one looks for in this franchise. I really don't like the flashbacks where the acting is stiff. Without Tony Jaa, the flashbacks just drag on and on. If fighting is what you crave, Tony Jaa gives the audience that and more. The ending is full of fighting but ends with an unsatisfying cliffhanger that is setup for the 3rd movie.
