The story is loosely based on the Thai legend of Langkasuka and starts when Prince Rawai, who has allied himself with pirates, attacks the ship carrying a Dutch cannon master and his cannons to be delivered to Queen Hijau to protect her kingdom of, you guessed it, Langkasuka. The cannons are lost to sea and only two survive the attack the Chinese inventor, who helped build the cannons, and a baby boy named Pari.
After the Cannons are lost the Queen and Pirates both spend the better part of two decades trying to amass armies and even reinvent the cannons that were lost to ensure victory for their respective sides. I won't say much more as this gives the main points of the movie without giving too much away. The action scenes are well choreographed and executed and the effects are extremely well done especially the aquatic marine animals. The costuming is also a step above as well making each faction in the movie very unique while still looking authentic.
With all this said the movie does suffer from some pacing issues but nothing that will disenchant you from continuing to watch. There are also a few, maybe like two, scenes where you can see certain swords not making contact or obviously not running a person through. Honestly these things have more to do with missed editing opportunity or camera angles but otherwise do not overly distract too much.
All in all this a roll licking kick ass movie and I highly recommend it to fans of fantasy and action. I would also say that like any international movie it is more enjoyable to watch it with the native audio on and English subtitles. 4.5 stars hands down!!!
thanks for the adventure.
The fights, the underwater scenes, the rural villages and decadent palaces, the wild characters... It's visually amazing, especially given the over-the-top martial arts.
Recommend for fans of fantastical wuxia-style films; not recommended for those wanting realistic combats.
I was very impressed with the story line along with the representation of several other ethnic groups. I was very happy with the choice.
If you're a fan of a totally awesome plot line with also awesome martial arts, sea wizards, explosions (but not too many), great characters, and a random guy who totally looks like Orlando Bloom, WATCH THIS.
