13: Game of Death (13 Game Sayawng)

Deal or No Deal?

Originally titled 13: Beloved, this Thai movie undergoes a name change in its release here, which I thought was slightly more suitable given its subject. A man given the opportunity to win up to 100 million Baht if he completes 13 challenges, which range from the ordinary (to get you hooked) to those which will slowly challenge your moral values.

Imaginative flick from Thailand with great premise and promise, only to be let down by execution and pacing at times. Not to say the movie's bad though, but one of the more interesting movies released here from the Land of Smiles after the dismal The Passion. Nonetheless, the finale is something to be reckoned with.
