How does this Movie hold up as a crime movie?
It is very intense and you can feel a heart beat of exitement, However the crime part doesn't take place until the near ending of the film, so the crime audience have to wait a little bit, but when it gets there its very exiting and gets 3/5
How does it hold up as a drama?
It hold up pretty well Thanks to charming and likeable characters, ofcourse the seriousness takes away a little bit due to somtimes over the Top comic revief scenes That doesn't feel neccesary but when it does get to serious drama you feel for the characters 3/5
How does it hold up as a romantic Movie ?
Sorry but here is the weak point of the Movie, and the sad part is that the romance is the main focus of the film but its played like two children falling inlove instead of Two almost adults falling inlove, the two leading roles mostly giggles and jokes and smile, not much hugging or kissing. 1/5
How is the Movie as a general?
All in all its very entertaining Movie, its beautiful 90s Thai pop Music help ease the mood and to watch this Movie is like a good experience of a Classic Thai Movie. I give this Movie a totally 7/10
CM 3/5 DM 3/5 RM 1/5 = 7/10
