Cast: Hiroshi Abe, Ammara Siripong, JeeJa Yanin
I love this. The cool thing about her having autism is that it's fully incorporated in her hero's journey. It's not like it makes her super human. I'm glad I gave this movie a try.
This movie is awesome, and JeJaa Yanin is an amazing fighter, i've never seen someone make some of the moves she's done. Truly one of a kind. I also believe the guy in the checkered bandana deserves employee of the year-- he popped up in that final fight so much after getting his ass kicked so hard during the first roof scene. Seriously, if she had ended up in a pantry that fucker would've been hiding behind a pickle jar waiting to make his move.
What an excellent movie!! She is a fighter! I see a little of Bruce Lee, Jet Li, and Jackie Chan in the fights. I find it funny that all these businesses have a full staff of "Slicky Boys" to take care of the fighting. I also think that the woman mobsters were men.Their voices were way too deep and they had high milage. They weren't feminine at all. I really enjoyed this movie and will watch it again. Not a horror movie, but well worth seeing!!
Much better than the Johnny Depp version
Watched this because I remember liking the director's earlier movie Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior. Liked this one too!
