User Review

Pure nonsense, but shot beautifully

Rating:


Based on a true historic figure? Wow, maybe only the in comic book? The
screenplay and the scenario are just stupid and ridiculous, I just
can't believe this is happening, man. The acting of the main characters
are just terrible. A Japanese samurai with a mouth lips like a carp can
speak Thai, playing flute as the movie's sound track, well, anything is
possible in this comic book movie. The master monk's nonstop chewing is
exactly like a chain smoker. But none the less, the whole movie was
shot beautifully in Thailand countryside with exotic scenic landscape,
but the village was designed and built too modern and so clean that
even the inspector from the Health Dept. couldn't have find anything
unhealthy or cross-contaminated. The traditional Thai warrior fighting
technique in this movie is amazingly effective and aesthetically
beautiful, making the so-called Chinese martial arts or Japanese karate
more like child play. These Thai fighters should be signed up by the
UFC or the Strike force to beat the crap out of those MMA fighters.
This is a very stupid and very artificial movie. Just watch the
fighting scenes, not the other parts, especially the claimed "historic"
crap, but definitely 100% better than Jackie Chan's moronic "Karate
Kid"
