Sypnosis :Pow grows up to become a great fighter in a small town fighting camp. Muay Chai Ya is his pride but not appreciated by everyone around him, except his closest friends, Piek and Samaw. One day, his long-lost father returns and trains the trio as the last group of fighters to take on the best.

I was really bored at home today, so I decided to watch this movie as the trailers promised a good old fashion brawl. I’ve always been fascinated with martial arts in all it’s various forms and Muay Thai is simply one of the better ones.

It’s quite surprising that this movie has been given a mid range rating across the region, because after watching the whole movie I think it deserves a far higher rating perhaps even four out of five! Why? because the story line is multi-layered and engaging not forgetting the very well choreographed fight scenes. The story evolves to show the true nature of honour, love and friendship which brought tears to my eyes.

I strongly recommend it! Can’t wait to buy the DVD when it comes out…..
