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.

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?

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.

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.

I've always felt that an action movie that pays a lot of attention to storyline and detailed subplots can actually make the action more effective, and I still do. But BKO: Bangkok Knockout (original title - Khotr Su Khotr So) is a reminder that sometimes, it can really be cool to just go with a simpler plot structure, a basic establishment of a few characters to root for and a few to root against, and just let the action start flying.

Basically, the story is this: a group of teams formed from MMA clubs and so on have been competing in non-lethal, friendly (for the most part) challenges in order to get a contract to be the stunt team on a big Hollywood movie. Once the rounds and done and one team is the winner, they're at a celebratory dinner when it suddenly becomes clear that the people sponsoring the tournament have something quite different in mind. They're not producing a movie at all but a real-life fight-to-the-death scenario in a vacant building for the enjoyment and betting of a few extremely rich clients. With the building surrounded and a warning that they'll be gunned down if they try to escape, the organization also abducts one of their friends, Joy, (played by the GORGEOUS Supaksorn Chaimongkol), who I gather is a recent sign-up to the club because she's not part of the group who thought they were heading out to make a movie, and hold her for ransom. Adding even more incentive one of the club members later learns that his mother and little brother have been taken prisoner as well. The group now has to fight their way out of a building loaded with video cameras recording their every move and broadcasting to the organization's clients, defeat the various adversaries sent their way, clear the building and try to rescue the hostages.

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.

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.
