This must be the best muay thai movie ever made, and the music is taking us heartedly back in time too. No doubt, this is most overlooked film of all times!

no new tale here in this rags to riches boxing tale 3 poor friends become fighters and gangsters as this mixes sports movie with gangster movie the results are so-so. the slo-mo boxing scenes and flashbacks have been don done and over done.

Most of the fighting was good. The story got a little over the top with the drama, but overall it was a good movie.

Very entertaing Thai action movie. The story a little weak, but the acting, and stunt work is top drawer.

From the maker of Ong-bak, this is a nice portrayel of friends growing up in Thailand trying to live off Muay Thai, using the Chaiya style. The way this is shot reminds me so much of british gangster films and I think there is definately some influence over the story here, with the organised crime taking place in the thai boxing society.

Phao is a young muay thai fighter living in a small town and training in a fighting camp. Though muay thai is the center of his life, it is not appreciated by everyone around him, except his closest friends, Piak and Samaw, who are also young fighters. One day, his long-lost father returns and trains the trio as the last group of fighters to take on the best.

Dommage que les acteurs ne soient pas vraiment top, la realisation est tres bonne tout comme le scenario.

Film a double tranchant, sanglant et dramatique. Il s'annoncait etre un veritable film d'arts martiaux, c'est rate. La violence remplace l'art du combat et l'histoire tres (trop) dramatique lui fait perdre toute credibilite. Bref, il en ressort tres peu d'emotions et cette ambiguite de genre laisse le spectateur sans emoi.

This movie is commonly listed as "Muay Thai Chaiya" and is from Thailand. If you like fight scenes and/or drama, this is your film! Warning: lots of blood and tons of rage ;)

A solid martial arts drama from Thailand that shows the harsh world of the Muay Thai boxer. From training sequences, gangsters, sanctioned professional fights, underground illegal brawls, romance, brotherhood to the obligatory heroic bloodshed, this action packed film has it all! A must see for the martial arts film lover!
