This was the breakout film for Martial Arts star, Tony Jaa. I had heard a lot about this film and decided to attend a screening at the Toronto Film Festival where the director of the film was present. I was immensely impressed with level of ability, originality and commitment. As I watched the film, I looked around at the audience and saw that not only did it appeal to the hard-core Martial Artist fans, but also seemed to impress and entertain everyone. Undoubtedly, Tony injected a new life into the Asian action films.
