The movie premiered today and I’ve seen it! It was two hours plus totally. Something didn’t live up to my expectation, something was beyond my expectation. If you plan to watch the movie, there’ll be spoilers ahead.
Overall, it felt like the work of an artist, yunno, where the director was trying to show his artistic skills in making movie. The problem is, that wasn’t quite fun as the viewer. If you want to enjoy the movie, I think you may have to erase all of Khu Kam’s memories in your mind and start anew. By the end of the movie, surprise! I loved Vanut more than anyone even though he showed up like less than ten minutes in the movie. He presented himself as a strong capable man fighting fearlessly for his country. Kobori by Nadech was a young loving man but I didn’t really feel his strong love for Angsumalin like in other versions. Angsumalin, portrayed by Richey, was the one I really really couldn’t connect with. Her acting was stiff that I ended up getting bored when she’s around Kobori, and that was a serious problem. Truthfully, I think if it wasn’t Nadech, this movie might…..Now there were something spectacular too, yes, the music, the special effects, and an amazing Japanese cast. I loved all the Japanese actors. Their seriousness was their charms. So for the summary;
Directing : if you love artistic and stylish filming then you should love it. But if you want Kobori you always love, you won’t get it.
Acting : Japanese cast were awesome, Kobori was Nadech as Kobori, but not Kobori by Nadech. Richey eh……..stiff, Vanut was so cool and hot!
Special effects : Cool! The bombing was a beauty.
Music : Impressive.
Costumes : Meh…..why everybody had to wear the exact same kind of hat? Why?
Verdict : It was a new Khu Kam with new interpretations from the director. See it if you love Nadech or you love the beautiful bombing with great music scores…and a lot of dust…
