13 game sayawng (13: Game of Death) (13 Beloved) Reviews
The escalation of games and questioning of morals makes for exciting watching .
The ending was enjoyable and offered some way of explanation, but then turned very quickly into a somewhat anti-climatic finish.
Then, the ending came,and pretty much killed the rest of the movie, still 3 stars for the rest.
This movie clearly questions moral codes, and is a decent "game" movie that Saw-lovin tweens should watch to discover how this genre should be done. Great production design and standout editing.
Most "fucked up" highlights: the clothesline; saving the old man from the well.
Wonderful reflection on the materialism in Thai society which makes this film a little bit more then just for fun. Hints of political and social issues are always with a disguised message addressing human issues as well. For all people familiar with Thai politics, Thailand's prime minister at the time, Thaksin Shinawatra, was directly referenced in the film - his photo was on the newspaper that Phuchit used to swat a fly!
The film won several awards in Thailand and if you have a chance to see it - do it now!
This thriller with touches of comedy and horror delivers a social commentary that we have seen in others similar movies.
¨13:GD¨ has a couple of plot holes, but it is an entertaing flix with some twists here and there.
The directing and acting is good and the ending was quite unexpected.
