Good Flick
29 August 2011 | by kenrickfernandesSee all my reviews

So i just got done watching this flick . I think this was a straight 2 DVD flick . Nevertheless it was mildly entertaining and a good story enough to not get you bored . Also this is the director first time directing a movie so i guess he managed to do a good job . Firstly without revealing too much , its about a boxer who has moved from America to bangkok for certain reasons and meets up with this so called "fan" . I don't think i ever got bored in the film , and i kinda like these low budget / not so Hollywood type movies . Actors in the film do a good job in their roles and everyone did a decent job without over reacting . There is a certain climax in the end , so look out for that too .

Overall i would give this move a 6.5 . Not more , Not less
