Editorial Reviews

Four young boys are kidnapped from their families and handicapped by their abductors. Forced to become beggars on the street they soon find refuge in a skillful Shaolin Kung Fu master who teaches them the art of his craft. When tragedy hits this clan they will discover that together they are invincible as they unite and fight for justice to stop the man responsible for the death of their beloved master.

Customer Reviews

They over did the Shaolin Martial Art skills.
Rika Dew
What was supposed to be the focus of the movie gets so abruptly and awkwardly pushed aside for something writer/director Yuthlert Sippapak thought would work.

I wish I could spend my money for another title.

I was expecting lots of intricately choreographed action (because its alternative title is Bangkok Kung Fu), and characters that really helped to drive the themes of the film. Nope, I got none of those things from this awfully structured movie. The acting is horrible, the dialogue is often laughable (not-on-purpose laughable), and more importantly, there's very little direction or thought put into most of the film.

I don't have so much of a problem with the special effects (considering the budget of the film) or the premise of a Shaolin Kung Fu master training abused children. In fact, I found that premise to be quite promising, since it could have opened so many doors for character studies and showing the inner conflict between respecting Shaolin ideology and the human need for vengeance - you know, something that could have redeemed everything else in the film! That's what it promised for the start of the movie, but then it miraculously screws up. For one thing, the acting is pretty stiff and nonexistent in this movie. I'm not sure if the poor dialogue is making the acting bad, or the bad acting is making the dialogue poor, but once the film ends, you just decide that it's both.

It makes such a sloppy attempt at giving these characters some depth and sense of brotherhood as they avenge their fallen master. No, I wasn't expecting an Oscar-caliber script or acting, but even compared to typical action movies, the attempt is still terrible. Consider this: once the plot fast forwards after the Shaolin master saves the tortured children from abductors, we notice an interwoven subplot of this teenage love triangle between the now trained martial artists.

This movie was absolutely terrible.
My credibility: I have seen just about every martial arts movie ever created. From Bruce Lee to Donny Yen, from Korea to Thai to China to Japan. So I know a good martial arts movie when I see one.

This movies has many minuses:
1. They over did the slow motion effects. We all love a good slo-mo to enjoy the full quality of the power of a strike or speed of a run, but every single punch in this movie was done in extra slo-mo which shows that none of these actors can actually fight. They compensate their lameness with this... A LOT.
2. They over did the Shaolin Martial Art skills. It seemed that these kids, having learnt martial arts from a young age, suddenly became mega-ultra masters of the trade and with one single touch, can disable a full grown man. It is too comical and unbelievable to be taken seriously.
3. Cheesy comedy. This movie has a lot of Asian slap-stick, which is sort of funny in Thai movies when done right, but defintely not in this one. The comedy is waaayy to cheesy.

One thing this movie has done right: The male leads are pretty hot (even the slow boy) but even that could not compensate for the horrible horrible acting, plot, and fighting this movie carries.

I cant believe they put money into something like this. Even Sesame Street can do better.

I did like the story but the effects & fight scenes could've been better. There wasn't a whole lot to the story but it made sense to me. I do still think they could've tweeked it a bit more though.
