Watch this if you liked: "Kala"

Blending ancient and urban myths about the naga, "Naak" is an action fantasy and romance movie all at the same time. It tells the story of a Thai Special Forces officer, Nawin (Jesadaporn Pholdee) who tries to protect Jin (Ploy Jindachote) from being captured by Manus (Pasin Ruengwut), a black-ops officer. Jin is actually a member of the ancient race of naga (snake gods who live in human form) but what other people do not know is that Jin can transform into a giant serpent.

For the first 45 minutes, this movie is full of action, leaving out a lot of conversation. It takes almost half of the movie for us to figure out what exactly the movie is all about. Once we get the idea, the movie becomes interesting to watch. One thing for sure, this movie is violent as hell. In one particular scene, Manus and his armies storm the village where Nawin and Jin were hiding and kill all women and children without any compassion.

Jesadaporn, who plays Nawin, does a great job in this movie. But Nawin has a way of never dying even though he is repeatedly shot and stabbed. Probably he is protected by the large garuda tattoo on his back! For Ploy Jindachote who plays Jin, she is not given much to do other than to say her character's name. However she is definitely good at conveying the conflict she feels within her body.

The special effects in this movie are not bad, even though there are some that look a bit amateurish. They do a very good job with the giant snake though. It doesn't show until the end of the movie, probably to keep up the suspense.

This is a great movie to catch if you are into this kind of sci-fi action. The director, Teerawat Rujintham, has done a good job with this movie even though there are some parts that can be improved.
