Editorial Reviews

Panna Rittikrai is a legend in Thai action cinema. With credits as director of Born to Fight and stunt coordinator for such classics as Ong-Bak and Chocolate, he was also the star of many action films in the 70s and 80s. Rittikrai is well known for being a famous mentor to some of the top action superstars working today, including Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak), Dan Chupong (Dynamite Warrior) and Jija Yanin (Chocolate). BKO features a range of martial art disciplines at its best when a group of "fight club" friends, whose styles vary from Muay Thai, Capoeira to Kung Fu and Tai Chi, must join forces and fight for their lives in a daring rescue of a kidnapped friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Total Knockout October 16, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Thai Martial Arts films either tend to be weak on plot or too plot/theme-centric to be completely enjoyable (Ong Bak 3). The best of them tend to view their plots as merely incidental: getting Hero A to Position B to fight Villain C. This is one of those films... to the extreme. If you want your martial arts movies with a strong plot and emotional resonance (Really?), then you should look elsewhere. What you will find here is a wacky, intense, jaw-dropping spectacle where martial artists fight a giant, ax-swinging, flaming psychopath that could be Jason Voorhees' Thai cousin, a lunatic in a car, an asthmatic sadist, and probably the most insane "under a tractor trailer" fight you'll ever see. You'll finish watching this movie wondering how nobody DIED while making this film. And really, what more encouragement do you need than that?

5.0 out of 5 stars Balls to the wall action! August 12, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I saw a screening of this film at Otakon 2011. Just a great Thai action flick in the tradition of Ong Bak & Born to Fight. The stunts and action set pieces will have you jumping for joy. This flick puts every western action movie made in the last 20 years to shame. I am very much looking forward to what the Thai action film makers come up with next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious knockout July 16, 2011
By Vin B
Format:DVD
I love this movie, I've been a fan of Panna Rittikrai ever since Ong Bak, now I can't get enough of his films.

If you like kung fu movies, just get this and don't look back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than Ong Bak July 16, 2011
By Lance D
Format:DVD
This is another Thai martial arts film. Thailand has really taken up the slack in recent years while Hong Kong has fallen to making a lot more retreads.

Bangkok Knockout has a style all it's own and really takes the action to another level. I won't bore you with the plot details, as with any martial arts film the plot is just an excuse to make more action and this movie does not disappoint.

Specific to this version: This is the Asian imported edition. Uncut and uncensored in the original audio language with English subtitles. That's the way martial arts movies should be watched.

The US release has some cheesy dub voice, they can really pull you out of the movie, plus the US version usually costs more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable Action July 20, 2011
By ALE
Format:DVD
I watch a lot of martial arts. A lot. I was expecting this movie to be
entertaining but not great. I was wrong. This movie was fantastic. Too
often martial arts movies get sidetracked with drama, romance, dumb
comedy, etc. Not this one. Its pure, almost continuous high quality
martial arts -- of many different styles. Action and martial arts
choreography was terrific. Fights look real because they probably are
real. This DVD was great also. Sharp picture, with good contrast.
Excellent English subtitles when there is dialogue (not often!). A
great purchase that I will be watching again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why Bother Making This Movie?
Clever premise for the movie, poor implementation. Very much a "B" movie. I was minimally engaged with the main characters, and the editing detracted from the storyline. Read more
