Prominent Thai actors are assembled to make this big budget project. Led by the veteran team of master martial arts choreographer, Panna Rittikrai who gained international fame from Ong Bak, Tom Yum Goong and Chocolate, audiences will see for the first time Tony Jaa’s newly developed fighting style that combines martial arts with ‘Khon’, a kind of Thai classical dance, originating before 1000AD.

In this film, Tony Jaa returns to his trademark style of ultimate fighting in several dangerous scenes: including the fight on the backs of tens of elephants and the fight with ancient weapons so fast, you can’t blink. The grand and gorgeous sets created are also expected to awe every audience.

The film tells the story of betrayal, revenge and the rebirth of a legend. It starts with the assassinations of Lord Sehadecho, the King’s loyal advisor and his wife, Lady Plai, by the treacherous Lord Rajasena, in front of Tien, the couple’s only son.

Tien managed to escape, with deep anger and vengeance in mind. Soon, Tien meets Chernang, the leader of the Garuda Wing militia, who raised Tien as his godson. Tien grows up studying not only martial arts, but also of explosives, magic spells and other guerilla strategies. Tien then sets out to seek revenge for his parents, only to be caught and severely tortured.

Fortunately, Tien was saved by Sage Bua, a Khon instructor whom he used to stay with when he was young. Sage Bua teaches Tien how to control his body and the power of a serene mind. Through the dharma puzzle hidden within Sage Bua’s teaching of Khon, an ancient Thai art, Tien finally discovers himself, as if he has been reborn.

With his newfound spirit, Tien combines his martial arts skills with the art of Khon, creating a new fighting technique so elegant but powerful like no one has seen before.
