Why not watch it then see how it goes? Its not as some of you think.

This comment is for people out there who manage to get their hands on this Thai epic. The sequel of the film Naresuan (as the title of IMDb implies). It is consider to be quite a good sequel, actually. In this film, Chatrichalerm Yukol has improved his style of directing from Suriyothai. In that last film, he focused to much on the main character. But in this trilogy, he really did a great job in keeping the roles spreading among the actors and actresses. There is no main focus on King Naresuan. Only the consequences of what he did.

In this part, Chatrichalerm Yukol really did a good job in labeling the pictures. As the story drags by, it goes in a smooth pace. Enough to let you embrace the atmosphere of the film. The success of this film is the part that it shows how he cares for each of his soldier.

The story is not the main point of the film, for it is well known if you read history. But the main point is how they present the story. There are some twists, most are usual ones; the presentation of each scene comes and goes gracefully, some fiercely. There are introductions to each scene, then a good way to finish it. The camera has its way to intrigue you.

Flaws are somewhere to be found if you look closely. You could see it in the some of the scenes; some scene are crafted with the pace too fast it takes little time to feel the environment of the movie. It may contradicts what I wrote in the beginning, somehow. But like I say: Only some of the scene. Not all of them.

Conclusion? This is one fine chapter in the trilogy of Thai epic. Its one big step into the future of this country's film-making industries. Hope they'll continue sticking with it. Flaws are little. Oh! Almost forgot. The other is the same problem with the first part. At the end, it gives a lacking feeling that it should be more.

But overall, recommended.
