repeats the more irksome flaws of Ong-Bak, offering a naive brand of nationalism somewhere on the border between the annoyingly cloying, the unintentionally hilarious and the downright xenophobic.
Born to Fight exists solely for the action, and there's no denying that the flick delivers it. And how.
dispensable characters engaged in 90 minutes of video game action
A superb showcase of bloody John Woo inspired gun-play, extremely cool fight choreography and some truly death-defying stunt-work. The plot is far from original about a terrorist group with a nuclear bomb who hold an impoverished Thai village hostage until the Thai national anthem playing over the radio whips up the locals into a violent fight-back led by a group of athletes and a cop who were on a charity mission to send aid to the villagers. It's a 90 minute movie with almost 70 of those minutes being pure action, even during the end credits we are shown on-set footage of the stunt workers in action reminiscent of a Jackie Chan flick. It's brutal and hard-hitting entertainment - I defy anyone to say they were bored whilst watching this!
Those crazy thai stuntmen are trying to kill themselves once more in this cheesy but fun action flick. The story is absurd even for MA flicks standards, and Dan Chupong is even more limited as an actor than Tony Jaa. But once the action begins, oh boy does it begins, people getting trown from moving trucks, bikes, crashing against cars, trowing themselves to burning wood-houses, kids fighting, elderly fighting, a guy with one leg kicking ass!
This might not be Ong Bak, but it's still a damn fun ride.
Merely okay. Some great stunts at the beginning, but bogs down kind of quickly.
Well, Ong Bak for me is still the bench mark in Thai movies.... the beauty and artistry of Thai warrior eclipses most Hollywood movies Ive seen. But where Born to Fight lacks the artistry, beauty, dialouge, with a few ridiculous moments, it certainly does make up with the passion!!
It was interesting to see supreme Thai athletes kicking ass..... an interesting concept. But who cares about the stars noones ever seen on screen, the ACTION is what its about.
Brutal!! Bloody!! GRAPHIC!! more grapahic than most horror movies!!! this is seriously not a movie for the innocent of heart, and lots of people do get killed, especially in the 40 minute fight scene! Guns, blood, martial arts and such...... thrown in like a heap of mess, but its the passion which drives it..... random yelling and screaming, and people literally get beat up but good in that movie!! Stunts were unbelievable!!! when you think stunts couldnt get any better, the piece de resistance right at the end..... before the whole village the size of my suburb gets blown to hell. O_O!!!
throw in a rebel army, a cop, a team of athletes, the President of Thailand, a nuclear missle...... YES a NUCLEAR MISSLE!! and you got one very messy, bloody, passionate and extremely enjoyable movie!
if your into this sort of thing.... in terms of gratituous violence, I dont think any movie can match it!! In Oz, they gave it an MA15+ rating, which was very generous I think, after watching it!!!
So action lovers, Ong Bak lovers, this is like the movie you watch when your not watching Ong Bak. And people who have no bones about watching people get shot apart and beaten up 500 times.....
Enjoy... when Ong Bak is a nice, upper class 5 dish meal, Born to Fight is a poor mans buffet..... but ALL YOU CAN EAT!!
Just make sure you get your steak well done... after seeing the amount of claret spilled in this flick, you'll probably faint next time you get scratched.
