That's it, plot wise. No more, no less. Like Police Story, Die Hard and Hard Boiled before it, Born to Fight isn't about deeper meaning, ninja skills or who's got more depth than who, it's about kicking ass and taking down names. Like those previously mentioned classics, the focus given by the paper-thin plot and characters gives the movie's action a chance to really shine.
What action it is, too. Jackie Chan and his stunt-team finally have some competition. I can't believe how totally insane some of these stunts are. From the opening lorry chase, right down to the final fight in the missile bay, every jump, fight and shoot-out is filled with tension, excitement, and what, looking at the out-takes, is genuine personal danger for the actors. Truly, this is the most over-the-top, mental stunt movie I've seen since the golden age of Jackie.
How much you enjoy Born to Fight will really depend on how you approach it. In terms of tone, the movie is slightly unbalanced, it's good-humoured, naive and pleasant characters being largely at odds with the movie's often brutal action sequences. Still, this won't be anything new to Asian movie buffs, so that's not such a problem. However, what will be is the fact that a lot of people are saying it's a Kung-Fu movie. This couldn't be further from the truth. Yes, there are fist fights, but aside from the scenes involving the sister, who's a Tae Kwon Do expert, nothing approaching trained martial arts. Ong Bak, this is not.
If you expect a straight, no-nonsense action movie ram-packed full of OTT stunts, then get out there and watch this puppy. It won't disappoint. But don't expect it to be the same as Ong-Bak, as Born to Fight is a much more traditional actioner. I will start out by saying that "Born to Fight" is an action movie in every sense of the word. It is full of adrenaline and martial arts. However, the movie does suffer from a fairly mediocre storyline.
The story in "Born to Fight" is about a drug bust going awry, when Deaw's boss is killed in an explosion. Upset with the situation, Deaw joins his sister and a group of Thailand's top professional athletes to go to a village to do charity work. However, the village falls prey to terrorists demanding the drug lord released, while they plan to blow up Bangkok with a nuclear missile. But Deaw and the athletes do not sit idly by and let this happen.
There is a lot of action sequences in the movie, and they are really nicely executed, plus filmed in great angles as well. Plus there is a lot of martial arts as well. And they even implemented ways to bring in gymnastics, rugby and soccer into the fights, which for most parts worked out nicely enough. Personally, I think the scenes with the soccer and ball-kicking during gunfights was a little bit too much, it just didn't seem all that plausible.
"Born to Fight" had an impressive array of athletes on the cast list, each displaying some impressive stuff from their given fields of expertise. Dan Chupong (playing Deaw) is a great newcomer to the Thai martial arts movies, and I think we will see more great martial arts movies from him in the future. Acting-wise, well not the best of performances in this movie, but it is not the acting you watch these movies for, it is the sheer, brutal action.
However, the storyline in "Born to Fight" was very predictable, you knew immediately how the movie would end. Plus it was something that didn't bring anything particularly new to the genre. Sure there were new stunts and fights, but the plot in general was generic and stereotypical, which was a shame, because it did bring down the movie a bit. And also, for a Thai action movie, then "Born to Fight" didn't fully bring what you'd expect from it. It had a lot of great action, but in other Thai action movies, you just get that one extra length, which was missing from this movie.
The fighting in "Born to Fight" was great. I, personally, really love watching Thai martial arts movies, because they are so raw, brutal and direct. You can see how feet and hands impact with whatever they are striking, and you can see that it is forceful and hard hitting. Lots of contact with knees and elbows to various parts of the body. And in "Born to Fight" you also have a lot of scenes where people bang against various physical objects; wooden fences, poles, etc. and you can see that it is real and there is a lot of speed and force behind those impacts, which makes you either cringe and curl your toes in sympathy pain, or makes you go 'wow, that is just awesome'. And that is one of the great things about Thai martial arts movies; no wires, no silken gloves, just sheer, pure action.
