Editorial Reviews

SEVEN FOOT, GENTLE GIANT BARNEY EMERALD is drugged and robbed while on holiday in Pattaya. He befriends two Thai sisters, one who can speak English and another who is a Muay Thai kick-boxing champion. He stays with them until he can recover his passport. After eating some spicy "somtum" at their mother's restaurant, he accidentally demolishes the place. They discover that when Barney eats the spicy somtum, he has a physical reaction that sends him into a raging and violent martial-arts frenzy. The girls use the somtum to control Barney's powerful reactions in order to earn back his stolen money and take down some local crime lords.

3.0 out of 5 stars FOREIGN FUNNY May 28, 2011
Format:DVD
Never let it be said that foreign countries don't make anything other than action films or deep, depressing dramas. Many have the idea that with the exception of martial arts films those are all they offer. In point of fact there are many great films coming out of other countries that we should open our eyes too. Unfortunately this might not be one of them though this could be one to get kids to do so.

MUAY THAI GIANT is one of the combinations of martial arts flick, comedy and crime story that come out of the oriental film market. Touted as being made by the producers behind THE PROTECTOR, the movie stars muscleman Nathan Jones as a down on his luck tourist in Thailand. Drugged and robbed of his money and passport, he befriends a young girl (a small time thief) when she is set upon by thugs. One would think he would come to her rescue but she's actually saved by her butt kicking sister, a muay thai fighter. Feeling for Jones they take him home.

The big lug does his best to help around the house. He's tall and strong so he can do a few things. Their mother wants her daughter not to fight so she's doing her best to support the family with a beachside food shack. When Jones has a bite of her somtom (an incredibly spicy concoction) he turns a bright shade of red and goes berserk destroying the shack she sells from. Now they need to find a way to make money fast and the only way they can do so is if his new friend fights.

Here again you would think this would lead to Jones being a big fighter but that never ends up being the case. Instead the girl is set up by the promoter and short changed when it comes time to pay up. But her sister has nabbed a special key being used by drug smugglers to open a laser encrypted lock.

4.0 out of 5 stars "It must be the big guy who caused trouble..." October 16, 2012
Format:DVD
"Muay Thai Giant" here (or "Somtum," which is a more apt title) is a pretty unique movie for giving the spotlight to a performer who thus far had been limited to henchman/enforcer/support-villain status throughout his film career - namely that giant among men, Nathan Jones. What's more, it places him in a fairly unique role, or at least one that few people would expect after seeing him in The Protector. Its DVD cover is slightly misleading as to informing you who the real action star of the picture is, but nevertheless, it's still a surprisingly watchable movie. It doesn't really throw any surprises at you, but for its scale and premise, it's thoroughly entertaining.

The story: possessing "the body of a giant but the heart of an ant," Barney Emerald (Jones) is robbed of his passport while visiting Thailand and subsequently finds himself caught up in both the lives of a fatherless family and the dealings of an underworld circle looking to sell a piece of criminal technology. Only when he realizes and masters the raging power he wields upon eating a spicy somtum dish will he be able to help the former and take on the latter.

While anybody can imagine Jones playing the part of a raging red hulk (he literally changes color upon eating that papaya salad), it's more difficult to imagine him playing a meek character prior to that who doesn't know how to fight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Amusing story, giant cast. May 21, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I didn't expect Oscar caliber acting, especially when the star is a 7' Australian former pro-wrassler. Nathan Jones does a respectable job as the gentle giant who has to survive after being drugged, robbed of all but his pants, and trying to help two pint sized girls who have come to his aid. The one girl is a real junior women's champion Muay Thai boxer ( a style of mixed martial arts) and could kick the snot out of just about anybody she meets while her sister is a sticky-fingered charmer. Cheesy, charming, nasty bad guys and lots of general mayhem. I'd like to try some of the somtum "salad" since I like spicy food but I'm afraid I would burst into flames.

2.0 out of 5 stars sufferable flick because the big guy gets a lead role January 19, 2013
By JP
Format:Amazon Instant Video
The lead, Nathan Jones, usually plays minor roles as the Goliath who falls to a smaller but more skilled fighter - in Troy to Brad Pitt's Achilles, in Fearless to Jet Li's Huo Yuanjia, in The Protector to Tony Jaa's Kham.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nathan Jones - a Gentle Giant September 17, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nathan Jones (for once not the villain) gets to shine in this entertaining Asian import. Drugged, mugged and stranded in Thailand, he is befriended by two Thai sisters and their mother. One of the girls fights in the Muay Thai style while the other speaks some English and is a bit of a troublemaker. When the big guy inadvertently destroys their mother's somtum food stand because of a reaction he has to the food, the girls decide to train him as a fighter so that he can earn enough money to rebuild the shop. Humorous mayhem results when the trio come up against a local crime lord. A very likable and enjoyable film with some good fight sequences.
