As a Thai moviegoer, I watch many Thai movies and this one is my favorite Thai gangster movies ever. Yuthlert Sippapak is a clever director. The actors perform great. Choosak Iamsook is a famous Thai comedian even this film is his very first movie as an actor he performed excellent. Another Thai movie that is worth-watching.
