Movie Info

After seeing his parents viciously murdered by a mysterious, tattoo-covered killer, a grieving young man named Zieng (Born to Fight's Dan Chupong) vows to avenge their tragic deaths in this action-packed martial arts extravaganza produced by Ong-Bak's Prachya Pinkaew and featuring stunts by Panna Rittikrai.

If you're getting the impression that Dynamite Warrior is insanely plotted for deliberate hilarity, you're right.

Jul 13, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

You have to applaud the attempts to enliven the genre, but Dynamite Warrior doesn't have the visual flair or humor to make this a midnight movie worth losing sleep over.

Light years ahead of Ong-Bak. It features well-choreographed kung fu and high production values.

Jul 6, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Dynamite Warrior is a genre confection with more than a passing resemblance to Hong Kong martial arts movies of the 1980s.

... amid the slo-mo furniture smashing and cheese-wizardry is a movie in touch with its inner lunatic.

Director Chalerm Wongpim's skull-buster makes up in wild-eyed insanity (and excessive, arbitrary slow motion) what it lacks in acting, pacing, and coherence.

Audience Reviews for Dynamite Warrior

This is a pretty wild film with subject matter all over the place. An early try at trying to make a bad film good by the use of a herpo who uses fireworks and dynamite to round up and defet the bad guys, South Koreas answer to Robin Hood. 2 Stars 4-1-12

Some nice action Scenes and tiny bit of Fantasy but I think over all it was a boring Movie.

Amazing and entertaining supernatural and action packed movie to set in a 1890's with high-grade special effects and the kind of raw action scenes the world is coming to expect from Thailand. I used to remember Thai actor/stunt Dan Chupong when I last saw him in Born to Fight at the first time.

A interesting yet flawed movie... though its interesting to move into the supernatural / adventure genre, though still retaining the great action and martial arts Thailand offers. Anyways, this is an interesting concept - though highly flawed and maybe a little silly at times, but still enjoyable for its action scenes. Compare it to movies like Kung Fu Hustle or Zatoichi - just not as funny or well made. But this is an okay start, and the "wire-fu" and effects are okay. If you are a martial arts fan, and like the above movies and others like Iron Monkey, then watch this.
