Rhanee (Jarunee Sooksawad) comes back from studying overseas. Her father is dead (it is in fact a picture of Mitr Chaibancha wearing Insee Daeng mask!) since many years but she takes over his duties by punishing and killing bad ruffian heads as a justiciary. Police inspector (สารวัตร) Decha (Sorapong Chatree) is responsible to catch Insee Daeng. Insee Daeng wishes to catch the heads inside the ruffians circle including Suphon (น้าใหญ่) (Kanchit Kwanpracha) and Lak Apichat. Suphon already faced Insee Daeng 20 years ago. Insee Daeng is fast and difficult to catch (มันไหวเหมือนพายุ). Decha uses one of the ruffians head as a bait to catch Insee Daeng. Decha doesn't shoot Insee Daeng as he has plan to use him as a way to reduce bad influence (อิทธิพล). Another trial to catch Insee Daeng by Decha fails. Meanwhile Decha tries also to stop organised mafia but without full success. Rhanee is working for Krissana, owner of insurance company and close friend of police inspector Decha. She takes opportunity to dispatch messages to the police through Krissana. Decha puts police woman Mot to protect Krissana against the mafia but he finally gets kidnapped. A 3M baht ransom is requested. Despite ransom payment, Krissana is still not freed and is tied to a railway path. Insee Daeng threatens a ruffian to get Krissana location. Police is warned and Krissana is released following shootings with ruffians. Insee Daeng succeeds to escape once again despite Mot’s opposition. Ruffians receive a new task to explode a bridge over Chao Praya river. Decha succeeds to put a microphone inside Suphon's home so is aware of their plans. Decha succeeds to neutralize part of the ruffians but Insee Daeng is the one stopping the bombs and killing the leaders. The bridge is safe. The movie ends with a nationalist image on Thai flag. This movie อินทรีผยอง (1988) tries to relaunch Insee Daeng serie but it lacks a good film directing. There is high suspicion that part of the movie has been cut by Lepso. Sorapong plays the police inspector with magnum 357 and dark glasses similar to many other 1980s movies he played in.

Nemana and Data, owners of the local sawmills, lend money to poor people with high interest. Chat bought a truck. He is close friend with Tai (Sombat Methanee), who is a village scout (ลูกเสือชาวบ้าน). The Village scouts was a right-wing group sponsored by the King and Queen of Thailand to promote national unity in 1970s. Villagers are helping each other. Due to debts (หนี้) Chat needs to give his rice fresh crop to Nemana. Poor (จน) people just work for the rich!

Despite Nemana's promise, some other ruffians try to catch Chat so he has to fight back for his life. As he shots two men, he has to flee to Bangkok. They lie to him as the ruffians are not dead. He is driving a taxi in Bangkok. He gets framed by Prachan who puts drugs in his car (เล่นละคร) in order to increase Chat’s dependence to him as Chat needs to pay back his gratitude. He accepts to join their team. Nuan and Tai marry. Chat, due to easy money and lust, forgets his pregnant wife Bua (กรุงเทพสวรรค์คนมี นรกคนจน, คนลืมตัว). Back to the village Chat complains about the corruption of officials and how to benefit from it! Tai wishes to fight against this corruption that is bad for the country, fight against the bad parliament members. Tai and Chat disagree so fight (คนโทรยศแผ่นดิน). Nemana and Tai have a disagreement regarding rice selling. Tai pushes his democratic concept as villagers can sell to anybody (สหาย). It is democracy versus communism. Nemana proposes to share power and influence (แบ่งอำนาจ). As Tai refuses, they kidnap Nuan, his wife, who is teacher in order to force Tai to join them. Tai refuses their ultimatum and decides to act at nighttime. Faced to a Buddha statue, Tai prays in front of the Thai King and Queen pictures. Thai Buddhism, the monarchy and the nation were high symbols against Communism in 1970s. Patriotic songs are played in the background (รักชาติ). Tai has to use a floating wing similar to a hang-glider to enter silently their camp. He succeeds to release Nuan but they are captured while trying to escape from the camp. Chat's mother dies on a mine while trying to convince her son (คนขายชาติ) to release Tai. Through his treachery he loses his mother (สร้างกรรม). He changes side so frees Tai and Nuan. Chat dies while holding the Thai flag. Tai takes over the Thai flag. Meanwhile villagers holding Thai flags and singing patriotic songs go towards the camp. Thai army is joining them. The ruffians are defeated and some of them injured or killed. Through high compassion, soldiers give help and priority to treat them. Tai successfully removes the red (communist) flag and replaces it by the Thai flag generating cheers and dances. The song “Nak Phaendin” was released in 1975. It is was a patriotic song (เพลงปลุกใจ) against the communist influence (คอมมิวนิสต์). During 1975-1980 years, Thailand was surrounded by Communist countries (Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam) and was at high risk to fall also. This movie from an historical point of view shows nicely this trouble period and how the government propaganda was done.

Main actors are Sombat Methanee and Aranya Namwong. The movie director was Kom Akadej, who got the “international name of Som Kit in the credits, which is a version of his middle name, Somkit. All the other actors got Chinese style names, probably to cash in on the Hong Kong market and the rest of the worlds wish for more Kung Fu movies. The Killer Elephants cannot be found anymore in Thailand except at the Thai Film Archive, the original Thai version. Joseph Lai and his IFD Arts and Entertainment prepared this international version, which is the most common version outside Thailand. This DVD was released by Swedish company Attackafant Entertainment directed by Fred Anderson, a well known lover of Thai cinema. This DVD is the first official ไผ่กำเพลิง DVD release ever. The "Killer Elephants" movie rights in Thailand belongs to Coliseum film (บริษัท โคลีเซี่ยมฟีล์ม), company from Kom Akadej. Up to now no VCD / DVD was released in Thailand with correct rights according to Thai law. Only a video tape was released long time ago. Coliseum film company would sell the rights for all Kom Akadej’s movies and not only for 'Killers Elephants' movie. Thai Company XxX (Triple X) was only interested in 'Killer Elephants' movie so up to this day Thai people are still waiting for a Thai version of ไผ่กำเพล to be released again. The movie also includes also famous supporting actors such as Yodchai Meksuwan, Naiyana Shewanan, Mayurachath Muarnprasitivej, Kanchit Kwanpracha, Pipop Pupinyo, Dam Datsakorn, Sayan Chantaraviboon. The finest batch of Thai actors during 1970’s! Only Sorapong Chatree and Krung Srivilai are missing. Pipop Pupinyo, Kanchit Kwanpracha and Dam Datsakorn were the regular bad guys in Thai cinema and so of course even in The Killer Elephants! The same story was also released as Thai TV lakorn in 2004.
