Editorial Reviews

Pint-sized Wun and his older brother live at a Muay Thai school with a few other students. Suffering from a failing heart, Wun is hospitalized and in desperate need of a transplant. A viable heart becomes available, but the donated organ is locked up in a hospital that has been overtaken by a lethal terrorist faction. With only four hours to perform the surgery, Wun's brother and best friends, armed with Thai boxing skills and determination, race to the hospital to take on the terrorists and save his life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Everybody was Muay Thai fighting... even the kids November 7, 2010
Format:DVD
3 or 3.5 stars out of 5 for this one. Lame title, kind of a cool flick. POWER KIDS, an action film from Thailand, supposes that pre-teen, early teen Muay Thai-fighting children can take on grown-up terrorists and wipe the floor with them. Unlike the Douglas brothers in 3 NINJAS, the kids here actually demonstrate the requisite skills and believability to pull it off. Woon and his older brother Woot attend a Muay Thai school with their friends, so that would explain all the martial arts. But life has saddled young Woon with heart disease, leaving the boy in dire need of a transplant. As Woon's condition worsens drastically, a matching organ surfaces. But then rebel terrorists seize control of the hospital holding the heart. Time for Woon's older brother and his friends to pull a John McClane. The kids spring into action under a deadline of four hours, that being the time limit for the donated heart's liability for a successful transplant.

POWER KIDS isn't polished. It's got plenty of rough around the edges and, really, the film doesn't get going until Johnny Nguyen (from THE REBEL) and his terrorists take over the hospital. Before that, there are scenes which inform the viewer of how much young Woon is cherished by his older brother and his friends. It's frankly a bit too schmaltzy. There's a comedy action bit featuring an Ugly American getting his what handed to him by the children and also a race sequence involving motorized toy cars which serves to expand on one of the kid's background and to then launch the central plot thread. For the action buff, things pick up after that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Martial arts with a heart! January 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The great film with the silly title, Power Kids (original Thai title: 5 Heart Heroes, but also known as Force of Five) is a terrific, action-packed martial arts film produced by the director of Ong-bak and Chocolate - which, if you've seen either of these films means you know what a rollercoaster ride the action sequences in this will be. Kids are the heroes here, as the film opens with a little shrimp of a kid named Wun, who lives with his brother Wut at a Muy Thai school where they have grown close to a few other students, forming a close bond of friendship between all five. Adorable and precocious, all Wun wants to do is be a normal kid - but born with a severe heart condition, the little boy has always had to take things slow, always under the protective eye of his older brother.

When circumstances occur that make Wun even more ill, to the point where a transplant is the only solution or Wun will die, the local hospital seeks frantically around Bangkok for a compatible heart donor - finally locating one at another hospital nearby. But with only four hours to spare, the heart is held up at the hospital - literally - when a band of violent terrorists take over the hospital, taking hostages and threatening to kill any and every person who stands in their way until their demands are met. With Wun so close to death, young Wut and his three friends band together to sneak past the terrorists, retrieve the heart for Wun, and get it back to the hospital before it's too late.

Yeah, the film is pretty obvious in trying to tug at the heartstrings ... but it's also an entertaining, action-packed roller coaster ride that has, at its center, a story of bravery, dedication, and friendship.
