Every year at TIFF I try to see as many movies from Asia as I can.
16 September 2015 | by nikkdSee all my reviews

This was one of the movies I viewed in 2011. Lately Thailand never disappoints me. Great concepts, great shots, amazing fight sequences very exciting and engaging films. Like one of the other reviews stated if you are going to the movies looking for big name stars, don't go see this film. But is you are going to the theatre with an open mind and looking to see a good film, then is is right up your alley. I know when I go see movies I usually get a general idea of what the film is about. Based on what I read I either go or choose not to go. This film captured my attention based on a number of factors and for that reason I decided to go see it. i can assure you that it was exciting, and I enjoyed every second of it, as I imagine you will if you agree with my philosophy with regards to movie watching.
