FURY

From director Prachya Pinkaew who brought us the surprising international hits "Ong Bak" and "Tom Yum Goong", "Fury" is about Zen, an autistic teenage girl who is gifted with a photographic memory that allows her to memorise martial arts moves that she sees and observes. She quickly learns Thai kick-boxing simply by observing the boxers near her apartment train. Her 'talent' came to the attention of a Thai mob boss who wants to utilise her to do his dirty work. But Zen has a personal score to settle with him first.

Watch this if you liked: "Ong Bak", "Tom Yum Goong"

There is only one aim for any movie produced - to be bigger, better and most importantly, to leave a positive mark on people. In Thailand, it will be an especially hard-hitting industry for martial arts genre. It will be difficult for people not to compare a new action movie to its earlier predecessor. If you have watch Tony Jaa's "Ong Bak," you would probably want to get that same intense feeling again when watching "Fury"- a new martial art movie by the same director, Prachya Pinkaew.

What sets "Fury" and its predecessor apart is that "Fury" has a more developed emotional storyline as well as its character, in this case, our butt-kicking heroine. What more can a person ask for? The plot is quite straightforward, without any unnecessary details cluttering its storyline.

For every stunts executed in "Fury," it deserves more than just "oohs" and "ahhs." Special attentions were given to each fighting scenes to achieve a very detailed kicks, punches and flips. Through a combination of Taekwondo, Muay Thai, Capoeira and Japanese sword fighting, action choreographer Panna Rittikrai takes an opportunity to introduce Parkour - a new sport known as free running or street stunt.

And of course, "Fury" is a showcase of not only the local talents, but also the various cultures and taboos in Thailand. Throughout the movie, audiences are entertained by Thailand's perhaps constant favourite- the transgender characters, as they walk around as if they own the place. Even though most of the time they look ridiculously funny, any provocation may lead them to do more than just scream!

The last 20 minutes of the film is definitely intense, when a fight between the lead and the villain takes to the extreme as they leap from one neon signs to the other which are suspended from the side of a building, almost 40 feet above the ground. "Fury" never fails to impress and entertain all at the same time!

Oh yeah, don't leave immediately right after the ending. Spare another five to ten minutes, as there is even more to it. Check it out to know why "Fury" is definitely an awesome movie!
