FoF is either the MOST violent children's movie I've ever been exposed to or it's an adult actioner that has children inappropriately in the lead roles. The truth is I really don't know who it's supposed to be targeting.
What I am confident in saying is that it's unlikely you'll ever see anything like it made in the west! It's a Thai martial arts production that resembled a violent Hong Kong flick one minute and a safe Aussie soap opera the next.
The acting, flat direction and heavy-handed emotion really weaken it. The better-filmed fight scenes are why it exists. The final conflict in particular. It's a showcase for the kids, they draw strength from their convictions and use it to fuel their elbows and fists, and it's jaw-on-the-floor amazing!
Adult actor Johnny Nguyen gets his face on the cover of my version, but young Sasisa Jindamanee deserves to be there; she's the real star.
