One of the best martial arts movies of the early 2000s, and the physicality of Tony Jaa cannot be overrated. If you enjoy martial arts films, you will probably love this one.
It’s ok. A bit ridiculous with the three different replays from different angles of every “cool” hit. And there really isn’t a likable character. Not by choice. And the girls voice is like nails on a chalkboard. I’m not happy with myself for watching the entire thing. Haha
Who gives a shit if it’s not horror? Just enjoy the majesty of Tony Jaa’s concussion-inducing knees and elbows slamming with gleeful abandon into the skulls of scores of stuntmen. God-tier Muay Thai choreography rivaled only by Jaa’s The Protector.
These actors take some very real beatings on camera. Great stunt work! And if you miss anything, worry not. There will be instant replay.
i like that this is here. I sibcribed to shudder for horror and gore and this has just enough gore for me to make the cut. while i love these kind of movies i would like to see more gore from this service. more REVENGE (amazing hyper gore movie) puppet master: the littlest reich (geat campy b list gore) just to name a few. im loving the service so far just needs more blood, guts and mutilation.
