Marina Antunes [Celluloid 03.18.11] Thailand movie news short action



I realize most of you weren’t particularly impressed by the trailer for the action comedy The Microchip. I fully agree it looked awful but I thought Simon Kook, who seems just on the verge of hitting the big time and following Tony Jaa’s footsteps, showed promise.

We’ve yet to see him in anything really good but Siam Fighter is definitely headed in the right direction. Shot as part of a Panasonic 3D promotion, the short film is, thankfully, not in 3D and features a pretty boring premise of a guy saving the girl he likes from kidnappers. It starts off slowly, showcasing the surroundings and making a pretty nice looking promo video for rural Thailand but you want to start paying attention at the six minute mark. At this point, the girl’s been kidnapped and Kook jumps into action. From that point on, it’s pretty much non-stop action.

It’s not all that jaw dropping but it’s pretty darn impressive.

Short film after the break.
