4.0 out of 5 stars Ong Bak, B-13, Rollerball, and The Venoms Series Combined February 27, 2010
Matrix Fan broke this flick down perfectly so I'll just toss in my two cents. Fireball is an entertaining gumbo with elements of Ong Bak, B-13, Rollerball, The Venoms Series, and other fight films tossed in. The action scenes are very gritty and will have you on the edge of your seats. I didn't think the basketball/fight club combo would work but it is very convincing. To sum this all up, buy it if you collect Martial Arts films or rent it for a quick action fix. Offbeat goodies like this never end up on cable television's so-called action channels.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring on the BASKETBRAWL! February 20, 2010
When I stepped into my local video store last week, I was looking for an action movie, but I couldn't decide what to choose. About halfway down the shelves, my eyes settled on this movie's cover and I saw the words:

"Basketball as an Underground Blood Sport"

Basketball _and_ Thai Boxing? I couldn't think of a better combination since Reese's combined chocolate and peanut butter! I had high hopes that I would be watching an epic brawler - and I was not disappointed in my choice.


We start off with the main character, Tai, getting released from prison. His twin brother, Tan, put up a sizeable amount of money to make this happen. Tai soon learns his brother earned this money by playing an illegal sport called Fireball - and Tan is now in a coma from being beaten within an inch of his life.

In order to raise money to get his brother a life-saving operation, Tai slips into his brother's identity and joins one of the Fireball teams, with the goal of reaching the finals to win a sizeable cash prize. Tai also learns his brother's would-be killer is playing on another team - so he's got some revenge to dish out before the tournament is over.

Each team has 5 players. Whoever scores a point first is the winner. However, if no one scores, the team with the last man standing is the winner. Whether it's the first game or the final tournament match, there are no referees...and no mercy.

From the second the basketball was thrown onto the closed court, I knew I was going to enjoy this rental. Forget throwing elbows, these guys were throwing HAYMAKERS! As soon as someone attempted a layup or an alley-oop, I knew an axe-kick or a body slam would be sure to follow...and they did!

3.0 out of 5 stars Thai Martial Arts Action Movie, Almost But Not Quite August 30, 2010
"Fireball" ("Muay Thai Dunk") may look like Thailand's answer to "Shaolin Soccer." The fact is the Thai action movie, almost totally free of humor, takes itself much more seriously than Stephen Chow's action comedy. The tone of "Fireball" is closer to that of the action films Jean-Claude Van Damme made in late 80s and early 90s, but with less of the martial arts skills and charms the Belgian star brought to the screen effortlessly.

"Fireball" follows the story of Tai (Preeti Barameeanat), a man recently released from the prison. Tai soon learns that he is free because of his twin brother Tan's financial assistance. To his great dismay, Tan has been hospitalized, being in coma after suffering severe injuries. To know the truth and exact revenge on those who are responsible, Tai, disguised as his brother, enters the illegal basketball games, which are actually bone-crushing, bloody martial arts battle tournament.

In short, to win the game, all you have to do is put a basketball into a hoop just once. Just one point. Players are allowed to do anything to get it, and to prevent their opposing team from getting one. The premise of "anything goes" is silly, to be sure, but has potential. But there are still two problems about "Fireball": story and action.

The main plot about Tai/Tan is paper-thin and contrived, and the background stories about Tai/Tan's romantic interest, Tai's boss who recruits him for his team, and other players who join forces to survive the tournament, drag on in places, but they are acceptable.

What disappointed me is the film's action. Actions almost live up to the expectations you might have after watching some other Thai action films recently released.

2.0 out of 5 stars Abuse of Editing Makes This A Difficult Watch November 15, 2010
I hate when you watch a film that not only feels like a waste of time but when you lament that time could have been spent elsewhere from watching a better film or cleaning the toilet. I knew not to expect an Ong Bak or a Chocolate. Also, I recently enjoyed the Legend of the Tsunami Warrior which was not a great film, but you can see the maturity of the Thailand popular cinema in terms of special effects and film techniques so I was curious on this film. Sometimes curiosity is dangerous.

Many times when you are watching a martial arts film (sometimes this goes with musicals as well) you can forgive an inane plot, idiotic characterizations and pretty much everything else if the fight scenes are sagacious. Usually when they are not it is because you are presented with actors (and/or choreographers) who know nothing about showcasing the proper aesthetics and the artistic ability to convey the beauty that makes martial art cinema great. Sometimes, like in this film, the actors have the martial arts ability, but it is the director, editor and cinematographer that help make this film an irritable exercise in how long can you sit at a time while watching this before you change and watch something else. I can forgive the film quality which has the feel of a low budget TV movie. I cannot forgive (besides the plot) the elliptical editing, the cinematography which seems to be done by a 300 pound ex-alcoholic after running a mile who is suffering delirium tremens, and the soundtrack with exception of the cool Thai rap heard early in the film. Honestly, I have no idea what they were trying to accomplish with the editing. Were they trying to outdo Michael Bay?

The plot was not much better.
