The story is about a guy who comes to town to offer a potion that will make you invincible and ageless. What happens is a woman drinks it and dies. Another man had already drank it but the director does not exactly focus on that. The voodoo doctor does not want them to tell on him so he kills them. He can't kill one of them, I guess I will consider him the hero, but he does kill the guy who drank the potion. So they kill this voodoo doctor and we fast forward 5 years. All of a sudden without any explanation the guy who took the potion comes back invincible. Now we just get weak fight after fight after fight. This movie honestly looked like a home video recording.
There is one very good fight scene. It took me a couple minutes to recognize Tony Jaa but he is doing some sweet moves. So he has by far the best part of the movie. The ending I thought was one of the worst ending I could imagine, but for a home video, it was actually pretty good. If you are looking for a movie with the same type of budget with some truly awesome action check out Legend of the Wolf.
Also the picture quality is pretty bad but is probably not BCI Eclpipse's(Brentwood Home Video's) fault. It is extremely low budget and the film stock changes hundreds of times from shot to shot.
The special features are so so at best. Half of it is just a bunch of clips from Rittikrai movies and man I hope this is not the best action Thailand could come up with back then. There is some good Tony Jaa stuff but the only things I found interesting was the display he did at a movie showing and a demonstration of some awesome looking muay thai moves which is basically just a demostration by a couple of guys.
2.5/5 for the movie
2/5 for the special features
Okay, we have no acting. Not bad acting, but no acting. The characters could have just been making up the dialogue as they went along and it would have made zero difference. There are no sets, just them running around in the woods beating each other up. And here is the big one, there are NO EXCITING FIGHT SCENES. I mean the people in the movie just kind of swing their arms and kick randomely. There is no fight choreography and there are no stunts. Me and my brothers could have made this movie. The plot? Who cares? It doesn't make any sense anyway.
Even the film quality is bad! About a dozen times throughout the movie, the color would change. It was as if they had two cameras that recorded with two different kinds of film. I mean it's just god-awful.
And it's a two disc special edition! What in the world could they possibly have needed two discs for? If you value your sanity, stay away from this steaming pile of crap.

I purchased this DVD for my husband. We watched it, but didn't make it all the way through the movie, because the plot was atrocious. Read morePublished on December 15, 2010 by Kira Pudding
Just like everyone else, I expected Tony Jaa to be the highlight of this film. He is not! He has a short cameo performing awesome stunts, but it only lasts about 4-5 minutes. Read morePublished on August 5, 2009 by Ashrok
This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. When I go for a martial arts movie I am looking for fighting. A good story line and acting is a plus but I want fists flying. Read morePublished on March 24, 2009 by C. Sakamoto
Tony Jaa is on the DVD cover, but I couldn't find him in the film! If Tony Jaa is in this movie, it must be a brief cameo. This movie was really poorly made, poorly acted... Read morePublished on December 27, 2008 by Robert H. Harrison

This movie is wack Jaa is only in it for 30secs so they repackaged it off the strength of his better films. If I could give it no stars I would. Don't make the same mistake I did! Read morePublished on January 10, 2008 by William Bruce
