This is an above average Thai martial arts flick. Anyone familiar with Thai martial arts movies, will know what to expect. Cray stunts and fight choreography, with a substandard script. This is more of the same.

Total Knockout Oct. 16 2011
By Johnny Anarchy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Thai Martial Arts films either tend to be weak on plot or too plot/theme-centric to be completely enjoyable (Ong Bak 3). The best of them tend to view their plots as merely incidental: getting Hero A to Position B to fight Villain C. This is one of those films... to the extreme. If you want your martial arts movies with a strong plot and emotional resonance (Really?), then you should look elsewhere. What you will find here is a wacky, intense, jaw-dropping spectacle where martial artists fight a giant, ax-swinging, flaming psychopath that could be Jason Voorhees' Thai cousin, a lunatic in a car, an asthmatic sadist, and probably the most insane "under a tractor trailer" fight you'll ever see. You'll finish watching this movie wondering how nobody DIED while making this film. And really, what more encouragement do you need than that?

Balls to the wall action! Aug. 12 2011
By N. Kaehler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I saw a screening of this film at Otakon 2011. Just a great Thai action flick in the tradition of Ong Bak & Born to Fight. The stunts and action set pieces will have you jumping for joy. This flick puts every western action movie made in the last 20 years to shame. I am very much looking forward to what the Thai action film makers come up with next.

Serious knockout July 16 2011
By Vin B - Published on Amazon.com
I love this movie, I've been a fan of Panna Rittikrai ever since Ong Bak, now I can't get enough of his films.

If you like kung fu movies, just get this and don't look back.

A Superb Martial Arts Roller Coaster Dec 20 2014
By Stephen O'Blenis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I've always felt that an action movie that pays a lot of attention to storyline and detailed subplots can actually make the action more effective, and I still do. But BKO: Bangkok Knockout (original title - Khotr Su Khotr So) is a reminder that sometimes, it can really be cool to just go with a simpler plot structure, a basic establishment of a few characters to root for and a few to root against, and just let the action start flying.

Basically, the story is this: a group of teams formed from MMA clubs and so on have been competing in non-lethal, friendly (for the most part) challenges in order to get a contract to be the stunt team on a big Hollywood movie. Once the rounds and done and one team is the winner, they're at a celebratory dinner when it suddenly becomes clear that the people sponsoring the tournament have something quite different in mind. They're not producing a movie at all but a real-life fight-to-the-death scenario in a vacant building for the enjoyment and betting of a few extremely rich clients. With the building surrounded and a warning that they'll be gunned down if they try to escape, the organization also abducts one of their friends, Joy, (played by the GORGEOUS Supaksorn Chaimongkol), who I gather is a recent sign-up to the club because she's not part of the group who thought they were heading out to make a movie, and hold her for ransom. Adding even more incentive one of the club members later learns that his mother and little brother have been taken prisoner as well. The group now has to fight their way out of a building loaded with video cameras recording their every move and broadcasting to the organization's clients, defeat the various adversaries sent their way, clear the building and try to rescue the hostages.

And what a 'fight their way out of the building' it is! This movie features some of the most spectacular hand-to-hand combat sequences ever put on film. These are incredible even by the standards of Asian martial arts showcases. Are they ultra-realistic in every way? No, not really, and they're not really supposed to be. Are they incredibly dynamic shows of skill, athleticism and fight choreography that'll have the viewer flinching back from the screen as kicks and elbows and lead pipes sail through the air? Yes, that's what they're going for and that's what you get. You've got likable protagonists, interesting villains and a couple of kind of 'in-between' characters. The production values, which sometimes suffer in Thai movies from low budgets, are in this one handled very well. And if you've ever thought about how cool it would be if a movie took one of the Asian action phenoms and put him up against a masked, practically indestructable, Jason Voorhees/Leatherface-type character, it's right here.

All in all, a thrilling and highly memorable action extravaganza, and essential viewing for anyone even vaguely interested in Asian action movies.
