As if the knowledge of “Vengeance of an Assassin”, the final film of Thai action legend Panna Rittikrai, being released in Thailand last week wasn’t enough of a tease! As if the behind the scenes featurettes weren’t enough to make you want to book a flight to Bangkok for the weekend! Now a clip from the film itself makes its way online, one that gives Stephen Chow’s “Shaolin Soccer” a run for its money!
Panna Rittikrai, his stunt team, and his leading man Dan Chupong must have been on a quest to outdo the brutality of hockey or American football with this sequence. Just imagine how bruised, broken, black and blue most of us would be after a soccer game crossed with a Muay Thai match! If you SOMEHOW weren’t swayed by the trailer (in which a character fights off a circle of enemies with a chicken bone!) or the behind-the-scenes footage, this new clip from the film should reassure you that “Vengeance of an Assassin” is a movie that every martial arts lover should have around the top of their Must See list! Let’s just hope it makes its way from Thailand to the English-speaking world before too long!
