News & Interviews for The Legend of Suriyothai
Critic Reviews for The Legend of Suriyothai
It is overlong, overproduced, overscaled and crammed with too many plots, subplots and digressions.
Without knowing what has been lost in the process, it would be hard to imagine the original film was any less repetitive or more dramatically engaging than what remains.
Compelling enough that one wishes to be able to see the entire eight hours, with all the missing context filled back in. As it is, this short version seems even longer than eight hours.
Visually ravishing and full of double-crosses and nefarious plots worthy of Shakespeare.
Audience Reviews for The Legend of Suriyothai
Great historical drama from Thailand, the America version was edited and presented by Francis Ford Coppola.
Okay, too bad it's actually called The Legend of the Tsunami Warrior, but whatever. It really did have potential, however the dubbing was horrible. At times I felt like I was watching an old Godzilla movie. The subtitles weren't much better. There was so much narration that the subtitles were actually behind by a few sentences at the begining and it had problems keeping up throughout the film. It was pretty kewl with all the fight scenes and the special effects weren't too bad either.
Such a beautiful culture although rough and strict. Suryyothai is a woman princess / warrior who leads her people into battle. It's a love story and filled with betrayal, revenge, bitterness and courage.
