The direction sucks, the editing is sloppy, the music tacky, and, save the brilliant Asanee Suwan, the acting is almost completely unwatchable. However, the beautiful story and gritty muay thai action kept me glued to my seat for the complete duration. One of the very few sport-bio-dramas worth watching! 3 stars.
The premise is so promising but then the movie decides to become this saccarine soap opera without an ounce of reality to it. Asanee Suwan as Parinya is very excellent though. He and his performance deserved a better movie than this.
