If you are looking for a movie as good as Ong-Bak or The Protector, then you will be disappointed in this film. The leading actor just does not have the appeal that Tony Jaa has. The basic plot is a delegation of the Thai sports' team comes to a small village to provide goodwill. The village is overrun by terrorists, who then bring a nuclear missile into the village. After half the village is wiped out by the terrorists, they and the delegation are taken to the middle of the village. After hearing a Thai song/anthem, the whole village is inspired to attack the terrorists. The movie starts off well, and has some crazy action with 2 semi-trucks and a van. When I was watching the film, I was amazed how some of the actors did not get killed or permanently injured. During the credits, they show how some of the stunts are done. Some of the actors did get hurt, and one guy almost had his head taken off. As someone said in a review, those guys better have had some serious medical insurance or signed a death waiver! The movie did slow down in the middle, but definitely picked up at the end. Some of scenes were a bit over the top, and this movie really could not decide whether it wanted to be a serious action flick, or a comedy-action movie. It was an enjoyable movie for the 96 minutes, but definitely not one of the top martial arts movies.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
