Editorial Reviews

Panna Rittikrai is a legend in Thai action cinema. With credits as director of Born to Fight and stunt coordinator for such classics as Ong-Bak and Chocolate, he was also the star of many action films in the 70s and 80s. Rittikrai is well known for being a famous mentor to some of the top action superstars working today, including Tony Jaa (Ong-Bak), Dan Chupong (Dynamite Warrior) and Jija Yanin (Chocolate). BKO features a range of martial art disciplines at its best when a group of "fight club" friends, whose styles vary from Muay Thai, Capoeira to Kung Fu and Tai Chi, must join forces and fight for their lives in a daring rescue of a kidnapped friend.

Thai Martial Arts films either tend to be weak on plot or too plot/theme-centric to be completely enjoyable (Ong Bak 3). The best of them tend to view their plots as merely incidental: getting Hero A to Position B to fight Villain C. This is one of those films... to the extreme. If you want your martial arts movies with a strong plot and emotional resonance (Really?), then you should look elsewhere. What you will find here is a wacky, intense, jaw-dropping spectacle where martial artists fight a giant, ax-swinging, flaming psychopath that could be Jason Voorhees' Thai cousin, a lunatic in a car, an asthmatic sadist, and probably the most insane "under a tractor trailer" fight you'll ever see. You'll finish watching this movie wondering how nobody DIED while making this film. And really, what more encouragement do you need than that?

I saw a screening of this film at Otakon 2011. Just a great Thai action flick in the tradition of Ong Bak & Born to Fight. The stunts and action set pieces will have you jumping for joy. This flick puts every western action movie made in the last 20 years to shame. I am very much looking forward to what the Thai action film makers come up with next.

This is concrete proof that it isn't necessary to have sequels for one off films that are this great. This movie by far is one of the absolute best of it's kind by any generation's standards. Tony & Jeeja are the best male & female solo performers of their generation. That being the case this group of up & coming stars definitely out performs any team deemed as a worthy comparison. They're not household names yet like the two solo acts previously mentioned, but hopefully if they all keep working together they could be the next "Venom Mob".

I've always felt that an action movie that pays a lot of attention to storyline and detailed subplots can actually make the action more effective, and I still do. But BKO: Bangkok Knockout (original title - Khotr Su Khotr So) is a reminder that sometimes, it can really be cool to just go with a simpler plot structure, a basic establishment of a few characters to root for and a few to root against, and just let the action start flying.

Basically, the story is this: a group of teams formed from MMA clubs and so on have been competing in non-lethal, friendly (for the most part) challenges in order to get a contract to be the stunt team on a big Hollywood movie. Once the rounds and done and one team is the winner, they're at a celebratory dinner when it suddenly becomes clear that the people sponsoring the tournament have something quite different in mind. They're not producing a movie at all but a real-life fight-to-the-death scenario in a vacant building for the enjoyment and betting of a few extremely rich clients. With the building surrounded and a warning that they'll be gunned down if they try to escape, the organization also abducts one of their friends, Joy, (played by the GORGEOUS Supaksorn Chaimongkol), who I gather is a recent sign-up to the club because she's not part of the group who thought they were heading out to make a movie, and hold her for ransom. Adding even more incentive one of the club members later learns that his mother and little brother have been taken prisoner as well. The group now has to fight their way out of a building loaded with video cameras recording their every move and broadcasting to the organization's clients, defeat the various adversaries sent their way, clear the building and try to rescue the hostages.

I love this movie, I've been a fan of Panna Rittikrai ever since Ong Bak, now I can't get enough of his films.

If you like kung fu movies, just get this and don't look back.

In tuning in to BKO: BANGKOK KNOCKOUT, you'll run into an exhausted premise and endure extended spells of dubious acting and cliched dialogue. And yet you ought to stick around. Because the action sequences, when they finally surface, are damn spiffy. The filmmakers had a flashbulb ignite overhead: "Hey, since we don't have Tony Jaa," they reasoned, "why not get a a bunch of Tony Jaa types?" I don't know any of these nine cats showcased here, and their acting may fall in the not-trying-all-that-hard category. But their martial arts chops are strong, brother. To differentiate between them, it helps that each character specializes in a different fighting discipline. But, no, I won't even try to drop the actors' names. Watching the film, I pretty much referred to them as "the black-clad capoeira dude" or "the slick Chinese boxer" or "the beefy Muay Thai guy." And then there are those two chicks who sometimes can fight capably but then are sometimes relegated to the roles of hapless damsels-in-distress.

The story takes its sweet time getting to the meat of things. In Thailand, fifty contending martial arts teams vie for the chance to work in Hollywood, except that, now, the contestants have been narrowed down to two competing clubs: the "Stunt for Life" and the "Fight Club." What they don't know is that there's no Hollywood gig. Instead, the winning team is drugged and forced to engage in an underground death match against a army of martial arts goons. The bouts are staged in a sprawling warehouse, with the action captured by strategically situated cameras. As an incentive, one of the team's womenfolk is abducted and, throughout the film, is dragged around the warehouse to draw in her would-be rescuers. Of course, there's the evil American behind it all.
