In an early fight, Billy's left ear is injured (outside near top cut open) and after is shown being sown together by Thai inmate: latter shots showing same ear have no sign of such / healing / scar or (probable) likes injury: of note, when the real B. Moore turns up as a visitor (as his own father) at the end, it is clear that his (real Billy) left ear (outside top) is missing. See more »
It's not a typical movie... it's a slow, realistic, painful movie, about what happens inside a Thai prison, which is basically hell, Don't expect to see an action movie, it is not, and do expect to see some horrible and disturbing sites. It's important to anyone to see this movie, as it also has educational value. The Thai boxing is just a minor part of the movie, and a tool to show how far a man is willing to go, how much suffer, to get a redemption, and fight his inside demons. Amazing camera work, and the acting of all actors especially the Thai prisoners (most participant are not actors at all) is fabulous. It looks so real you almost forget it's a movie and not a real life documentary. The leading actor in this movie is a brave guy to take such a hard role, which required a lot of practice and preparations. I highly recommend you watch it, some scenes in this movie you will never forget.
