Gentle giant Barney Emerald is drugged and robbed while on holiday in Pattaya. He befriends two Thai sisters, one who can speak English, another who is a muay-thai kick-boxing champion, and stays with them until he can recover his passport. After eating some spicy "somtum" at their mother's restaurant, he accidentally demolishes the place. He vows to find a way to earn the money to rebuild the restaurant.Written by
It was a great movie in regards to the martial arts and basic plot line, but some of the situations in the movie were a bit senseless. Some of the antics of the younger sister are slightly annoying. While I'm a long time martial arts action film fan and I understand they don't all come with the greatest plots or character developments. I would have liked to seem some redemption in the youngest sister during a particular portion of the film where it was obviously a great place for her character development.
Regardless of that, this is a fun movie to watch. The fight scenes are pretty light hearted as well as the storyline. Everything is choreographed well. Sasisa Jindamanee does a great job as the tougher and a bit more sensitive sister. While I didn't particularly care for Nawarat Techarathanaprasert's character, she did a good job in her role. Nathan Jones does a good job as a clumsy gentle giant. Overall, everyone handles their roles well and it makes for an entertaining film.
