It's Muay Thai Versus Kung Fu In Thai Action Comedy MONKEY TWINS
Monkey gods figure large in both Thai and Chinese folklore and theatre traditions with monkey god Hanuman figuring large in Thai lore with magical monkey Sun Wukong figuring large in China. And the pair are meeting in upcoming Thai action comedy Monkey Twins.
Co-directed by Nonthakorn Taweesuk and Weerapol Pumartfon - the writer of Ong Bak 2 and action choreographer of Tom Yum Goong 2, respectively - builds the theatrical traditions of both countries deep into the bones of the film and given the experience and skill set of the directors it comes as no surprise that the quality of the action looks very good and there are familiar faces such as Kazu Patrick Tang in the cast.
With the passing of famed action choreographer Panna Rittikrai and Tony Jaa moving on to dominantly international projects following his (very) messy divorce with Sahamongkol there's a definite void in the Thai action scene. Will this one step in to fill that gap? Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
