The Thai setting also gives it a cultural identity that differs from the usual Jackie Chan/Jet Li offerings, but it is this sense of national pride that often spills over into distasteful xenophobia. All of Tony Jaa's opponents are foreign, and the film takes pains to point this out; the white fighters are nothing but bloodthirsty animals, and his drug-fuelled and corrupt nemesis (who during the ring fight is even announced to be fi...
