The movie plays like a prank on Jaa that Jaa isn't in on. He's all bland seriousness while the movie is putting him through greater and greater absurdities with Simpsons-like comic escalation. Unfortunately, Jaa dominates a little too handily. In some of the fight scenes his opponents are just standing around waiting to get punched in the face. But, hey, it's all in good fun.
The action and fighting were all great but the use of slow motion replays on intense moments didn't work. Story and acting were weak but Tony Jaa single handedly made the movie crazy entertaining. It was as much a parkour/ gymnastics movie as it was a martial arts movie. Took a while to get the action moving.
