Chat (Sorapong Chatree) and Thanong (Sombat Methanee) are mafia members (นักเลง) and friends. Thanong is a mafia head (เจ้าพ่อ). There are always internal fights with other mafia leaders. Nancy (Apiradee Pawaputanon) is Chat's girlfriend. Chat and Thanong are dressed like Chicago gangsters and are always smoking cigars. Thanong's younger brother, Rut, is a policeman but he is not fully aware about his brother’s activities. Pen (Pumpuang Duangchan) is a nurse. Thanong likes her a lot (นักรัก). Thanong wishes to change his job but he cannot leave his subordinates (ลูกน้อง). Thanong asks Pen for wedding. A shooting happens during the wedding but none is injured. Chat escapes to Shing, who is now a traitor and wishes to get rid of Thanong to take his position (บ้าอำนาจ). Thanong, through a Typical Rambo 2 scene with big guns, wishes to punish Shing. Thanong is captured by the police following a rampage at Shing’s home and sent to jail. Chat needs to send Nancy away so that he can handle the situation. She is finally killed. Chat wishes to revenge her. There is a famous scene featuring a killing rampage by Chat in a restaurant with guns hidden in each flower pot. Three years have passed. Thanong is released from prison but he doesn't want to return to underworld mafia. Chat was injured to the ankle so he cannot walk properly anymore. Chat is now a car glass washer. Without their boss, Thanong’s men are wrecked (กูรอมึง). Thanong is accused of Rut's sister murder. Rut is upset because his brother is a ruffian (เป็นพี่เป็นโจร) so his management doesn't trust him. Thanong’s men including Chat are disappointing that Thanong wants to be out of mafia business (วางมือจากวงการ) and doesn’t want to give a lesson to Shing. Shing wants Thanong to be back in business as partner but Thanong refuses. Shing’s men beat severely Chat and also threaten Rut to convince Thanong to change his mind. Chat succeeds to get proofs regarding Shing’s illegal activities. Those proofs are given to Rut. Before fleeing, Chat and Thanong wish to face Shing a last time for an ultimate revenge. It is the last movie where Sombat Methanee had the leading role. This Thai movie is based on the Hong Kong movie “A Better Tomorrow” (1986) shot by John Woo. The scenario is very similar. It involves strong action and some comedy. Sorapong Chatree plays same role as Chow Yun-Fat. The movie is entertaining but the realisation is not as good as the one from John Woo. The end of the movie is very weird. It stops abruptly when Thanong is going to face Shing. Thanong is expected to die. There is unfortunately a weird movie abrupt ending.

Don (Krung Srivilai) is always looking for troubles with ruffians (นักเลง) and hitmen. Most of the time he is drunk. Pot (Duangdeuan Jithaisong) is now Phayak's girlfriend (แฟน) but Don loved her before. Don is now married to Phaen. Phayak (Sorapong Chatree) (มือปราบที่จับตายทุกคน) is local subdistrict headman. Ruffian So is looking for revenge (คิดบัญชี) against Phayak as this latter put him in jail before. Amnat (Chat Mongkolchai) arrives with 20 ruffians in a restaurant. Phayak tries to stop their rampage. Don helps as the situation was getting tense. Don finds Phaen (อี๊สาวเลว) in bed with a ruffian. Ruffian So kidnaps Pot. It is a trick to kill Phayak but it fails. Ruffians see Don as a weak drunkard. Don also punches ruffians showing them that they shall not insult him too much (แมงดา). Phayak's responsibility now extends to cover territory from So. Amnat's ruffians storm Phayak's home and kill everybody (ครอบครัว) including Pot despite strong opposition. Pot is finally only injured. Phaen was aware but didn't warn Don. Amnat proposes a duel to Phayak but it will be 7 against 3. Don is severely sick due to alcohol but Phaen takes care of him. Amnat prepares a trick again. Don comes to give a hand. Don kills Amnat in a final duel but gets severely injured. He finally recovers. Don and Phaen are back together. Lepso VCD คู่แค้นปืนเดือด (1988) is only 1h16mn long so the movie was certainly cut a lot and so making the movie directing a bit awkward. Sorapong is wearing a north confederation hat.

He was selected by Chalong Pukdeewichit thanks to his impressive bodybuilding. 1M baht is promised for each. Half now and half when the job is completed. Another group is following Oliver also. They threaten Katherine to get information. To force Kirt to join his team, Oliver kidnaps his daughter. Kirt has to accept to lead them through the Thai Cambodian border as it is full of mines. Meanwhile Katherine is going to Cambodian side to help poor people per her previous promise to Sorapong. It reminds the real story of Phanom Rung lintel stolen during Vietnam war and given back to Thailand in year 1988. Sayan Chantaraviboon and Apiradee Pawaputanon are part of the Red Khmer army. Sorapong's men are all killed during an embuscade and Katherine is captured. The Vietnamese soldiers wish to know why Oliver is back. Despite being tortured, Oliver refuses to speak.

Yot (Krung Srivilai) is another policeman, who has a hot temper (รุนแรง) and uses easily guns to stop robbers (ผู้ร้าย). In a single day, he shot four robbers. It makes big headlines in newspapers. Ithipon always follows the law (ความยุติธรรม) and wants to give a good image of the police to Thai citizens. His family is poor. It includes his sister, Am, and his mother. Am is still a student and is addicted (ติต) to marijuana (กัญชา). Ithipon needs to solve many issues linked to the facts that policemen do not always behave well in private life also (club singer pregnant and dropped...). Ithipon sometimes acts like a social assistant. Ithipon’s team deals with heroin dealing case, prostitution cases, rape case, police corruption but also everyday ordinary cases. This movie shows the kind of crimes faced by Thai society in 1970s. Yot, by killing some drug dealers, puts the mess again (มือปราบจับตาย) as no proofs and information can be got from dead bodies. Yot’s behavior is linked to his past when he was ten years old. His mother was murdered by a carpenter who was acquitted due to lack of proofs despite he saw him with his own eyes! So nowadays he has become a harsh policeman. Yot has been suspended (ถูกราชการ) following the drug failure case. Rich people use their power to influence police. A businesswoman wishes to have her son released! Ithipon needs to arrest his own sister Am as she was caught smoking opium (ติตยา) in an illegal den. Ithipon remains inflexible. The law is same for all so he refuses to help his sister and has to perform his duty (นาที). Yot continues to shoot illegally some bad people and wish to clean the Thai society. Ithipon meets Eewa, his former girlfriend. Ithipon is poor so he couldn't marry with Eewa. As Eewa's parents were sick, Eewa had no choice than becoming the mafia leader Kongwan’s mistress. As her parents are both dead, Ithipon proposes to take care of Eewa and hides her. Kongwan's ruffians are looking for Eewa. They storm Ithipon's home, hurt the mother and kidnap him. As Ithipon refuses to speak and to accept dirty money every month, Kongwan drugs him with heroin to make him dependent and to know where is Eewa. Finally Ithipon breaks down and tells them where Eewa is. Being inflexible with law, what did Ithipon gain? His mother is injured, his sister is in hospital and he is also addicted now (ตรงกับกฎหมายไม่ได้อะไร). His family is wrecked and his sister despises him. Eewa is kidnapped by Kongwan again. While being under treatment Ithipon flees from hospital. Being beaten by drug sellers, he is rescued by Pen. She was a prostitute Ithipon helped before to leave this profession. As a way to thank him she takes care about him until he can recover. Redemption is always possible (ยังมีทางแก้). Both his sister and mother have died. Yot continues to do his own justice by cleaning Bangkok from bad guys. Ithipon starts his own revenge by storming and burning Kongwan's heroin warehouse and by shooting ruffians. Kongwan orders to kill Ithipon. He shoots Eewa as she was going to warn Ithipon. Ithipon is injured again. The violence cycle has no end. There is a dirty policeman inside the police station, who always informs Kongwan. Kongwan does the cleaning of informants as a trial against him is ongoing. Yot won't let him go away. While leaving the hospital and going back to his slum house, Ithipon is shot by Kongwan. But this time Kongwan cannot escape his responsibilities and is caught by the police. Ithipon finally wins by following the law (ชนะตามกฎหมาย). This movie includes the 1970s top actors and features a funky "Shaft" 1970s soundtrack. This interesting movie deals about Thai police hardship and difficulty to have a clean police due to low monthly salary and extra judicial killings. It is still an issue nowadays. In 2011 senior police officers own a big illegal casino in the heart of Bangkok. It was was overseen by local police and allowed in only high-stakes gamblers.

The crime is signed by Red Roses gang. Krung promises to take revenge. He helps his wife’s sister (Naowarat Yooktanun) being attacked by the gang also. Nirut Sirijanya and his brother take profit of gang rivalries to take some suitcases full of money and drugs. The brother has issues when protecting a young lady against ruffians but inspector Sorapong Chatree is helping. Lowu is the Chinese leader of Red Roses gang. Both Nirut and Krung are captured by the gang but succeeded to escape. Khun Ling (Aranya Namwong) or White Rose is arriving from Singapore. Only the White Rose knows the identity of Red Roses gang’s real leader so she is welcomed at the airport by Sorapong before the gang can kidnap her. Meanwhile Krung falls in love with Naowarat. Krung is captured again. He is framed in a murder. Krung kills one of his wife’s assassin but is then facing inspector Sorapong as he cannot break the law either. Red Rose gang leader is played by veteran actor Adul Dulyarat. Naowarat is kidnapped by the gang. The leader recalls Krung far souvenirs when he was a soldier. The gang leader’s wife and daughter were killed by Thai soldiers during shootings. Since that day, he wishes to take revenge over Krung. To get Naowarat released, Krung has to shoot White Rose, who is a danger for the gang. As Krung and White Rose were lover in the past, it is a difficult decision.

The movie “The man from hell” or ใครจะอยู่ค้ำฟ้า (1978) is currently available through Ocean Shores video tape in English only. It is weird to have Sorapong, Krung with an English dubbing but as least Thai music was kept. The movie has sometimes a weird directing. As the movie is only 1h26mn, it is highly probable that it was cut for an international version as most Thai Movies during 1970s last almost two hours. 5 Top Thai stars are starring in this movie, i.e. Krung Srivilai, Sorapong Chatree, Nirut Sirijanya, Naowarat Yooktanun, Aranya Namwong. Fantastic bell-bottoms are worn by Sorapong Chatree.

Chot (Sorapong Chatree) and his sister Choi (Aranya Namwong) are children of poor farmers. Chot loves Soi, who is the subdistrict headman's daughter (กำนัน). They love each other but Chot cannot have any hope as he is too poor (เด็กเรียนควาย). Chot helps his sister Choi as she was going to be raped by three ruffians (สัตว์นรก!) that are protected by the local subdistrict headman. Saeng, son of the subdistrict headman, requests a young lady called Bua as a payment for her mother's debt. Bua takes refuge in Chot's father home. Meanwhile Chot is arrested as he hit earlier the three ruffians. It is unfair and the family has no money to pay the bail (ประกัน). The father needs to ask a local Chinese moneylender for 10 000 baht to pay the bail. There are always issues between Saeng and Chot. Saeng would like to kill Chot. One night, Saeng's ruffians rob the 10 000 baht reimbursement and kidnap Bua. The subdistrict headman and village headman are not helpful to poor people. The village headman prevents Chot and other men to look after the ruffians as Chot shot one of the robbers. Bua is then found dead. Choi is very upset as Bua's death is due to the village headman (ผู้ใหญ่บ้าน) inactivity and his refusal to take responsability (ไม่รับผิดชอบ) as he prefers to help rich people only. As the headman hits her sister, Chot, in full anger, shots him and then needs to flee. Chai is the local Chinese moneylender's son. He is no respect for others. Chai (ลูกเศรษฐี) tries to shoot birds in a Buddhist temple despite the abbot's request to stop. Chot, who took refuge in this temple, prevents him to do so as a temple shall remain a peaceful haven. If we accept human sins, what kind of future will Buddhism have? (ถ้าเรายอมให้มนุษย์ทำบาป ศาสนาจะมีอนาคตอะไร). Pliu, future lawyer, promises to marry Choi. Chot succeeds to get back the 10 000 bath from Saeng (ตอบแทนความชั่ว). The father refuses the money believing his son is now a brigand (โจร). Heavy floods happen. All crops are devasted. The father has no more money to invest in new crops. Be good and there is nothing good happening to them (ความดีไม่เอาแล้ว). The father receives 3000 bath to plant new crops but Choi must accept to be the moneylender's domestic helper (เป็นขี้ข้าดอกเบี้ย). As Chot was injured, he cannot help. Only the Buddhist abbot helps him. Choi is drugged by the moneylender and raped. Then she is forced by Chai. She fell in hell (ตกนรก). She supports this situation as respect to her father (กตัญญูสำหรับพ่อ). Tia, the moneylender, likes Choi very much and decides to take her as minor wife. She accepts in order to remove her father's debt but this one doesn't understand his daughter (sent her to be a maid and not a wife - ส่งให้เป็นแม่บ้านไม่ได้ส่งให้เป็นเมีย) and decides to stop any relationship with her (ไม่มีลูกสาวแล้ว, คนอยู่ละโลก, ผู้หญิงขายตัว). Money has destroyed his world and family. The father has a heart attack and dies. Choi is now pregnant. Most likely the father is Chai and not Tia, the father. Tia's wife puts everybody under his own responsibility. Wishing to do good one time in his life, Tia promises to give a house and one million bath for Chai to marry Choi (ฮี่ควาย). Saeng then threathens to kill Tua if he doesn't handover a bus line. Rich and influent people are sinful (สัตว์มนุษย์) behaving worst than animals. Finally Tia asks Choi to convince Chot to give a lesson to Saeng versus a promise to help Chot against authorities. During the fight Saeng accidentally dies. Chot surrenders (มอบตัว) and is finally forgiven by the tribunal thanks to lawyer Pliu. Choi continues to behave badly with no respect, no care for anybody except himself. He finally has a business conflict with Tia and dies, being shot by Soi. This movie has a deranging question regarding karma. People who do good and follow up Buddhist precepts are the poor losers. The moneylender, the subdistrict headman's family do not follow the law and are the one reaping the profit. Is it worth to be always good people when injustice prevails? Actor Sorapong Chatree got a best Thai actor award for this movie.

It is far from Bangkokian romantic drama with palatial suburban estate house. Krung Srivilai received a Thai award for his performance. This movie was so successful that it was screened again in 1975. The Culture Ministry registers 25 Thai classic films each year at the National Film Heritage Registry. This movie is part of the 25 films heritage list announced on 04 October 2015, which is Thai Movies Conservation Day.

Thai movie 'Luk Yot' (ลูกยอด) was released in year 1971 and features Thai film superstars Krung Srivilai and Petchara Chaowara. It was Krung Srivilai's first movie. Krung was 4 years younger than Petchara so from being the younger sister (น้อง) with Mitr, Petchara becomes the older sister (พี่)! After Mitr Chaibancha’s tragic death in year 1970, the Thai cinema needed new faces, new main actors to replace the void caused by Mitr’s premature death. Only a two minutes trailer is remaining as the movie is lost in Thailand. A full movie summary is still available as some old Thai movie stars magazines can still be found nowadays. Various sequences can be seen during those two late minutes : Sithao Petcharoen paddling a small boat on a river and watching young ladies, shootings. Other actors / actresses include Pisarn Akraseranee, Choomporn Theppitak, Boo Wibunnan, Wassana Chalakorn, Sopha Sataporn, Preuhat Boonlong,Sukon Koewliam. 7 songs are featured in 35mm format.

Two CIA agent are slain in Pattaya by a mysterious scarface man. A CIA top management meeting is organised in Washington. A nuclear missile called Alpha has been stolen. Suspects are a communist terrorist group called Fuji and led by a Cambodian General named Keng, the KGB and an influential Thai businessman called Koo. All of them are implicated in this Alpha project. Another American agent called Reddy is flying from Hong Kong to find the missile hidden somewhere in Thailand. Reddy tries to meet Koo’s daughter, Erica. Reddy and Erica had a former romantic relation and still love each other after 4 years of separation. Zee (Krung Srivilai) is like a son for Koo and also his favorite henchman. Zee loves Erica also. He doesn’t trust Reddy and believes he is a undercover CIA agent. Two secret agents of Thailand are also supporting Reddy in his quest. Koo's mistress is played by Pawana Chanajit, the Pearl of Asia. She is in fact working for Fuji group. Koo doesn't want his daughter to see Reddy. An impressive car chasing and shootings takes place during Chiang Mai Songkran festival between Ruddy, Erica and Fuji members. Reddy is captured while entering Koo’s house. Erica helps Reddy to flee as he has been drugged. Reddy finally finds the missile after multiple fighting scenes against Fuji group and against Zee. Zee really loved Erica as he sacrifices his own life to avoid her being shot by Fuji members. This movie is fully packed with actions sequences such as train collision, boat chase, shooting, car chase, helicopter gunned down... The movie includes multiple treacheries and double agents. It is nice to see so many Thai actors in this international Hong Kong / Thai movie. Two international stars Robert Mitchum and Olivia Hussey brought more international exposure to this movie. In 1970s Krung Srivilai always played the good guy but in this international production, he is playing well the bad guy. The English dubbing is quite weird but the movie has really a nice budget. This movie is a Bangkok film production. It is available in Thailand as “ตัดเหลี่ยมเพช” and in Hong Kong on VCD format under the title "H-Bomb".
