LepsoStudio also sells this movie but names it incorrectly as มือปืนสะท้านเมือง or 7 สิงห์แดนนรก. This movie is based on a real story. Life's circumstance changes Lek's existence and forces him to kill 12 men. A few village headmen (ผู้ใหญ่บ้าน) have a meeting to decide who will be the next subdistrict headman (กำนัน). Current subdistrict headman Liem wants to push his own son to be his successor. His son is a local police officer. They use bad influence (อิทธิพล) to control the subdistrict. Village headman Naparn tries to oppose. Naparn has two sons, Lek (Sorapong Chatree) and Porn. One night village headman Naparn and Porn are killed. Subdistrict headman Liem hire a hitman (มือปืนรับจ้าง) to kill also Lek. During the funeral (งานศพ), the police officer asks Lek to follow the law (หน้าที่ของกฎหมาย). Lek decides to do his own justice as it will be too difficult to find proofs against a subdistrict headman backed up by a policeman son. The subdistrict headman Liem and one of his son are killed by Lek, who has to flee. The subdistrict headman Liem's second son is not killed as he is a policeman. Liem's ruffians team asks support to subdistrict headman Sing (Kanchit Kwanpracha). Various intimidation and murders are performed by the ruffians team. Lek's family members or friends are killed one by one. They were innocent. Lek cannot remain neutral (เป็นคนดีไม่ได้). Lek has no choice than to exit from his retreat. He shoots a few ruffians. Then Lek quits the province to find a new job. He gets a job in a sawmill (โรงเลื่อย) in Saraburi. The boss is a lady (Pumpuang Duangchan). As he saves her from a log accident, they become sweethearts (แฟน). The ruffians find his retreat. A first murder tentative fails. Understanding that the ruffians will never let him safe, he decides to get rid of them (ต้องฆ่าให้หมด) to solve this endless situation. Lek prays every evening as life's circumstance forces him to kill ruffians to protect people he loves. Lek refuses to become an official hitman as he will not kill people who didn't hurt him. He attacks directly the ruffians' HQ. Sing and the ruffians are afraid for their lives. They ask help from another subdistrict headman. Lek and his remaining friends decide to raid his house to get rid of them. Police arrives to separate both groups. Believing that Lek is injured, his wife hurries up to go there and convince him to surrender (มอบตัว). After a trial, Lek and his friends are condemned to life imprisonment but are finally released after 12 years in jail. The real Lek was then killed by a hitman in 1993.
Thai title: เพชรพยัคฆราช
Main actor: Sombat Methanee,Sorapong Chatree,Krailat Kriengkrai,Krung Srivilai,Tuanton Kammeesri
Main actress: Pumpuang Duangchan,Apiradee Pawaputanon
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.
