Please note, that there are two versions of this film available. There is the 1986 born to fight, and the 2004 remake (by ironically the same director). The 1986 version contains a special feature Tony Jaa talking about why he liked the movie and how it influenced him, as well as a spoof of ong bak, with the 1986 film. The 2004 is a more lean and mean movie, released by Dragon Dynasty, with different special features. Make sure you know what you're getting before you pruchase it.

With the 2004 version, I will review. I thought the action sequences were amazing. I'm always shocked the lengths someone will go for a stunt. This, like Ong Bak, is showing a growing trend among loosing the unreality and CG in favor of more real action. The trouble is the plot is rather bland, and goes no where. However, if you liked the protector, and could get past the "where's my elephant?" storyline, then this shouldn't phase you too much. Also, Tony Jaa is sorley missing from this movie. He is great at action, but has a bit of charisma and acting talent, which is also lacking from this movie. But I digress. It is entertaining and I recomend it.

Anybody who enjoys both old 70's kung fu films and modern action masterpieces like Ong Bak and Tom Yum Goong - will think this title is a terrific addition to their collection. The fight sequences were filmed with nearly all full contact for brutal realism and they are excellent, especially for their time, - and seeing Tony Jaa's mentor Panna Rittikrai as a lead will make you a big fan of him as well.

As long as you set your expectations to what you will be getting (a low-budget Thai B-movie from 1986 after all!), you will be amazed. The fights are choreographed and play out like a combination of the modern style used in Ong Bak and that used in older Wu-Tang Clan style kung fu movies. But you won't be disappointed - I was personally surprised to see a ton of great slow motion, double takes, and editing in the fights to allow the viewer to really see the punishing impacts.

One thing that surprised me about this film is that THE DUB IS EXCELLENT!!! I am normally somebody who HATES watching live-action dubbed but I was shocked to see just how perfect the voices used were and how spot-on the "acting"/matching/and writing of the dub were. In part a lot of it's value comes from the dub having great "camp" flavor but it mostly stays true to the script and, IMO, improves the movie a great deal for English-speaking fans who just want to kick back and enjoy the experience.

The story is pretty basic but it generally works to stage the action, keep you interested, and add a little comedy here and there. You could nitpick some of its faults (at times things can get a little slow or dry) but who cares - you came to see some great fight/stunt sequences. And you do get quite a few cool ones!

Format: DVD
Dan Chupong stars as a cop who goes with his sister to a charity event that is supported by Thai Olympic athletes. His sister is a Taekwondo champion and many other real life Olympic champions are at the charity as well. When an evil army takes over the town where the charity is being held, the athletes must help the village fight the terrorists.

The action is mostly stunts. All real stunts, though they do slip in a bit of C.G.I. There is the occasional fight, but it is all about the stunts in this movie. There are scenes where guys go flying through the air doing multiple flips and end with crashing into a burning frame of a building! Words can't really describe how amazing the stunts are, it is just something you have to see for yourself. And don't think that there are just 1 or 2 action stars in the movie. ALL of the actors can do their own stunts. The people who fight in the movie range anywhere from age 8 to 80. There is even a one-legged guy who gets to show off his skills! You also have the scene where they fight with real firelogs. Not a firelog hitting someone in the head once and then a cut, but long, extended takes of actors hitting eachother over and over again with real thick firelogs and embers flying in everyone's eyes. It would take a review literally 20 times longer than this to go over all the incredible things that happen in this movie. It is your average direct to TV action movie, but with some of the greatest stunts ever filmed. If you are a fan of the ultra low budget films that Panna made in the 80's and 90's, you will be happy to see what he can do with an almost limitless budget.

3.5/5

Picture quality and sound are perfect. English dub included if you don't like subtitles.

I've been so impressed with the latest string of amazing martial arts movies out of Thailand, that when I saw this i picked it up right away. The film itself has some amazing stunts & action, but there are two problems with this DVD. 1) The print they used is pretty bad, not remastered at all, still watchable though and 2) It's a fullscreen presentation. A lot of times this really doesn't matter, but this DVD really shows you its shortcomingsl; you miss some of the flow of the action, as fighters drift in and out of the frame. I found it frustraing. The DVD comes with some great extra features, so if you're a fan it's worth owning. The newer "Born to Fight" by Panna has a fantastic Dragon Dynasty release, maybe they should have package both films together. It needed that professional, respected Dragon Dynasty touch. This reminds me of those terrible Dimension Jackie Chan & Jet Li DVD releases, definitely put out by a non-fan. This are one step up with nice bonus features, but the movie like I said is not up to par...Can't wait for what Panna & Tony do for Ong-Bak 2!
