Movie Reviews

Disappointing transfer
MK | USA | 04/27/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Saw this at the theater and was wowed away by how visually stunning this film is. I was excited to order it on DVD, and received it today, but was disappointed by how low quality the transfer is. The colors are dull and blurry compared to what I saw on the big screen. Total let down because the visuals make the movie."
Roy Clark | Edge of Toiyabe Nat'l Forest, NV | 07/20/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"That's because Thailand is all that, and much more.

The five stars are because I love Thailand. If I could, I've have given it ten stars. But because of barrage of melodramatic - okay, corny - cliches, the cacophony of tossing everything familiar film trick into a cinematic blender, imposing the unique Thai logic, making incredible production gaffs first year film students would avoid and the really misleading hype of its marketing, I just can't. It's not clever parody nor artistic exaggeration; it's just seems an adolescent idea of such. Then too, Amazon just wouldn't allow 10 stars anyway.

Well, 'Mai Pen Rai'. Support this movie as a homage to Thai cinematic growing pains. That Thai phrase means 'Never mind, it doesn't matter'.
Oh, and the art direction, a Thai forte, is real pretty.

Better to recommend THE LEGEND OF SURIYOTHAI. It's as colorful and imbibed with Thai spirit, but less of a parody in a blender. And more informative re Thai history, too."
A Thai Spaghetti Western
James Schifeling | Normal, Il United States | 02/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Surreal Western with over saturated color sets and bright costumes that of-set the overt violence.

Boy from the wrong crowd falls in love and turns his back on his ne'er do well gang. Has to fight it out against former allies in the end.

Looking forward to seeing this with proper subtitles and a better film transfer as I have the Thai DVD that came out several years ago....and believe me it WAS HARD TO FIND!"

"outstanding flick. i expect most viewers not to "get it," more's the pity to them (come on now, thai culture's not THAT alien to you all, is it?). visually breathtaking, maniacally acted and directed. deserves a wider audience and more appreciation than it's sure to get, sadly..."
