I love Panna Rittikrai, even the crappy movies he made - and that's a lot. He started young, gathered his friends and started to make his own movies in the late seventies. The stunts and fighting got crazier and crazier and everything evolved into the modern day action cinema of Thailand.
Here's the end fight from Gerd Ma Lui, one of his most popular from his early years:
Here's the brutal endfight in Gerd Ma Lui 3:
Here's a trailer for Battle Warrior (it has another titles, but I just can't remember it now) where they try to fool you that Tony Jaa has a big part. He hasn't, but there's a lot of great jungle-action. It's out on an okey US-dvd by the way.
Gerd Ma Lui (the original one, he used the same title for his "remake", Born to fight), Battle Warrior and something called Thai Police Story is out on dvd and is easy to get. Thai Police Story has crappy quality, but is the most actionpacked of the three of them. And the one with least budget to.
Hard Gun is another movie out from BCI. It's quite okey, but has very little action and is more focus on drama and comedy. And of course, Tony Jaa just has a small part in it - so don't be fooled by the cover. Spirited Warrior (or is it Spirited Killer?) is out on dvd to, but it's a very boring and cheap movie.
I have a bunch of his old movies on vcd and dvd and they're a must for fans of thai-action!
