I have never seen metal buckle and cave that easily, especially not on a car made for stock-car racing. When I realized I was in the wrong movie and that this one seemed to be shallow and pointless, I almost left, but my girlfriend said that we already missed the other movie's beginning and that we should tough it out with this Bangkok Knockout. Sometimes, after one or two rounds of fighting, there's some stories we need to know about the background of some event etc, kinda lame for me because the foreign actors are also not good at acting, and even bad at speaking English. While there are a few familiar faces in minor parts, the only actor I really recognised was Rittikrai himself, playing another merciless fighter with a twist — this time, he's got asthma. Luckily, there are two cute and pretty awesome girls.
But after, maybe about thirty minutes, the fighting begins. The second thing that had me amused was the way the black car crumbled as people were punched and kicked against its surface. Actually the story is so ridiculous that it is almost painful to witness. But the director has no idea how to make a film, and the writing to which the director contributed is beyond awful. No one would be able to get on their feet after such a thrashing. There's a love story, some rivalries and grudge matches, girl fighters their moves were pansy though, I'm waiting for a combat action movie where the girl's martial arts isn't all about agility but power and brutality too.
Maybe because of the lack of any real character development you don't care about any of them. Less guns, more skills, guts and glory. Btw, some scenes sometimes don't make sense, just enjoy it. When it starts it is fast ferocious and continuous. It is great watching some realistic looking punches and kicks landing with satisfying thuds. The first thing was how did that white guy, Mr. When has the plot ever been the key element? Tony Jaa is a man of a new way of martial art in movies for me.
And how did he manage to get portraits of each competitor and show it on the screen as the random fights were starting? Most of them revolve around some little village traditional artifacts being stolen and our hero go get them back in the big city. If this is the case then surely it is the fighting that is the key element to it being a good film. As painful as the beginning of the movie is, once the action got started, we were both glad we stayed. The cast are pretty rubbish — these are the kinds of guys who make a good stunt team, but who are hopeless as characters we're supposed to get behind and root for. Some of the stunts don't quite work like the guy in the car trying to run over people and crashing through the obvious to see paper thin wall.
I mean, he drugged these people to get them into the game, but then how did he make them all walk on one line, looking happy about it? But don't ever expect a good story and good acting. In fact, after winning they are drugged and kidnapped, and forced to fight for their lives in a contest staged for the benefit of some extremely wealthy gamblers. For that reason I am rating the story out of 4 and the fight sequences out of 6. Panna Rittikrai, a legend in Thai action cinema with credits as director of Born to Fight and stunt coordinator for such classics as Ong-Bak and Chocolate, was also the star of many action films in the 70s and 80s. And thirdly, the sheer amount of beating each person took in this movie was just beyond mortal comprehension. Apparently the usher did not care to verify the name of the movie on my ticket.
It could had worked, but it got a bit too goofy for me at some points, and lets say that you don't really get into the story that much. No wait, they are real. The trailer promises great action and realistic fighting. The story is about a group of friends being drugged and forced into a twisted game of survival sports to entertain a handful of rich gamblers. This is the martial arts Matrix in a warehouse with no story. Well, the final movie delivers. And I guess, all of them were either Athlete or stuntman.
The idea of the story is not so bad, but it's brought kinda poorly. To be honest i think the Muay Thai is a great art to watch, and usually the Thais are going for hard hitting, like some people mentioned, you can see the hits connect, the dust created by it and such. Their part was to sit and bid on the hero fighters. But another thing that i realize watching Thai movies, its that usually the story is pretty bad. And the Thai- American and the main villain the white guy, they didn't seem to take this seriously at all. They are good-looking and can do some moves. Widescreen; Soundtracks: Thai Dolby Digital 5.

Different than American typical fighting movies, or even Asian Kung Fu Movies, the Thai 'modern' martial art movies are fresher on the eyes. Anyway mostly this movie is a big fighting sequence past the first half hour and this is what you can expect from a Thai movie, not more, not less. Mostly, the fights just consist of people running up walls, jumping and kicking people in the head. If you watch martial arts movies then you must have an interest in martial arts. And he gave their hiding spot away, and they couldn't take the smell of his fart so they ran out and exposed themselves.
