In this Thai martial arts film, Tony Jaa been very busy indeed. Writing, producing, directing and starring in this film which tries to fuse legend with contemporary martial arts, it begs the question if Jaa has managed to actually be jack of trades or master of none.

Set in 1431, Jaa plays Tien, who is being held prisoner and has been seriously crippled by his captor, until a pardon for his release is ordered and he goes through a rehabilitation with the help of Master Bua, who rescued him. There’s plenty of punch-ups, Buddhist philosophy and action but perhaps Jaa cold have spent more time on the plot.
