Thai action cinema has become world famous through individuals such as Tony Jaa with Ong Bak (2003) and Tom Yum Goong (2005) and recently Jeeja Yanin playing the autistic action hero of Chocolate (2008). But Thai action has many more flavors then this.
While the aforementioned films are more or less unarmed combat films, Born to Fight is what if you were speaking of Hong Kong cinema, you might call Gun Fu. That is, a fast paced mixture of gunplay and martial arts with the occasional car chase or explosion thrown into the mix.
