This Thai action movie is based on the historical events in 16th century Siam. The kingdom of Ayothaya and Japan had trading and military ties. Japanese Military Volunteers were sent and settled in the capital. Yamada Nagasama is one of the volunteers. His mission is to help crack down a group of thieves infiltrating Ayothayan homes at night. As he is about to get to the bottom of the mission and catch the mastermind to present to the king of Ayothaya, the leader got to him first and tried to kill him. Fortunately a group of Muay Thai warriors came and rescues him from the brink of death. This is the start of his journey to the Thai martial arts. Combining this with his Japanese Samurai techniques he became invisible and ready to take on any opponent. His target is the leader of the thieves who he knew from the Japanese Military Volunteers. The action pack movie is heavy on swordfighting. There is a lot of blood and violence but that’s what makes it exciting and effective in recreating Yamada’s early life in Thailand and his road to success as an official in the royal court.

Based on the historical figure Yamada Nagasama. This Thai movie tries to recreate the kingdom of Ayothaya and the military ties between Thailand and Japan in the 16th century. This action pack movie combines the stealth and swordsmanship of Japanese Samurai and the speed and acrobatic martial arts of Muay Thai. Combining these two martial arts tradition Yamada is an unstoppable force. Yamada is betrayed by his own country man, a high ranking official in the Japanese Military Volunteers who leads a group of sinister Ninjas creating havoc in the capital of Ayothaya. He attempted to assassinate Yamada but failed. Yamada was saved by students of the Buddhist monk, Muay Thai master and chief counsel for King Naresuan. This is the beginning of Yamada’s journey into the world of Muay Thai. Befriending other warriors and becoming the first foreigner to be taught the treasure of Ayothaya kingdom. The film is not disappointing in action as it combines the two great martial arts traditions in one movie. And it is flawless in presenting what could have been the early years of Yamada in Ayothaya and the reason for his rise to power.

  • Love the fact Ayutthaya is given a title namecheck and also features in the film - a landmark city not given the exposure it deserves on film.
