Yot meets singer Pai Lu (Hong Kong actress Regina Pai Ping) in the plane and sympathizes. Mitr disguises himself as Chat, a tough ruffian, to infiltrate Kecha’s gang. Chadaporn Wachirapranee is Chat’s old wife so he punches Sompol Kongsuwan to show he is back. Chao Klaewklong introduces Chat to Kecha. Kecha is looking for a new right-hand man (แขนขวาคนใหม่) as Yot betrayed him. Kecha wishes Chat to get rid of Yot. Ratsamee (Petchara Chaowarat) loves Yot but Yot also loves Pai Lu, who is in fact an undercover policewoman from Hong Kong. Ratsamee warns Yot that Adul is around looking for him. Pai Lu and Ratsamee escape from Adul but get arrested by policeman Lor Tok, who ignore they are from Interpol Police (ตำรวจสากล). A painting called เพชรตัดเพชร is purchased by Wilaiwan Watthanaphanit bidding against Kecha. Miss Boran (Kaenjai Meenakanit) is the sexy painter. Adul wishes to buy the jewel hidden in the painting but this one is now always worn by Miss Boran. The jewel contains a password (รหัด).

This movie is one of the best confrontations between Thai superstars Mitr Chaibancha and Luechai Natnat. As it is a HK Thai co production, it is interesting to find that the Chinese version poster features Chinese actress Regina Pai Ping’s head in big size. Mitr Chaibancha and Petchara Chaowarat are displayed in small size. But the Thai poster displays more prominently Mitr Chaibancha and Petchara Chaowarat. In the Chinese synopsis, Mitr Chaibancha is written as mi-tsai- wan-chai (Thai detective No 78) and called as Ah Tsai in the movie. Regina Pai Ping (Hong Kong agent No 113) is called as Pai Lu in the movie. Petchara Chaowarat is written as Pi-chai-la and called as Sha Mei in the movie. The movie was so famous that it was released once in year 1966 and then reshown again in year 1975. The original version lasts 2h20mn but the 1975 version was reduced to less than 2 hours as both movies เพชรตัดเพชร and คนเหนือคน were shown together. The DVD released by company Pantamit is based on the 1975 version. It took five years for company Pantamit to convince the film owner to lend it in order to make a digital copy. Another film copy remains in the Thai Film archives.

The casino owner, MengYu, offers him a deal, i.e. accept to go to prison for 10 000 USD in order to contact one of his teammates jailed for life. Only this inmate knows where Wang Piu, nicknamed as King Cobra, is. Veteran actor Lor Tok is playing the jail keeper. The inmate is killed just after telling to Pan that King Cobra is located in Pu Geng area and after giving a letter of introduction. Pan teams up with Lor Tok. They are both threatened by ruffians also looking for King Cobra. Pan asks his friend Chumporn to look after his home and his brother while he is away looking for King Cobra. Around Pu Geng area, Pan meets the local owner (Adinan Singhiran) of a mine. He is hired as a tough man after showing up his skills to knock out four guys and even helps the mine owner's daughter who was kidnapped. Meanwhile Pan's brother is kidnapped by a team of ruffians led by a fierce young lady called KenYouSee (Wassana Chalakorn). To get his brother back, Pan needs to bring Wang Piu to the young lady. She has a revenge to take as Wang Piu caused her parents to die 10 years ago. Pan locates the King Cobra or Wang Piu thanks to the letter of introduction but the young lady KenYouSee is following just behind them. Pan finally meets a noble man looking for his lost princess daughter. Meanwhile KenYouSee captures King Cobra and tortures him as revenge. MengYu, the casino owner, KenYouSee and other thugs were all looking for King Cobra. MengYu double crosses Pan. The princess is in fact Peng, KenYouSee's sister. Everybody is looking for her jewels box as it includes a list of political insurgents. The list is for sale. Finally the princess is kidnapped by MengYu while storming KenYouSee's camp to try getting King Cobra. Through a daring operation, Pan and his friends release the princess. During the movie shooting, long trail boats run over each other and actress Petchara Chaowarat falls in the river. MengYu's team and the thugs willing to buy the list kill each other believing the other party breaks the deal. It is a full packed action movie. Unfortunately the Thai movie is cut into an international version lasting only 1h33mm instead of two hours so those cuts make the movie directing and scenario sometimes weird. It is a IFD movie and luckily it is not merged with Ninja sequences as the original Thai movie is lost in Thailand. During year 1976, this movie was famous as famous veteran actress Petchara Chaowarat falls in the water following a dangerous action scene between two long trail boats. It appears on all Thai newspapers and those newspapers are even featured on the movie poster! The other event was related to sexy actress (ดาวยั่วเซ็กซี) Wassana Chalakorn who dares playing naked in a shower scene. The IFD movie has been redubbed in Thai language in Thailand recently.

Two young guys are dealing with heroin. The police failed to catch them. The two guys take refuge in a young lady's home, who is the girlfriend of one of them. They are modern Thai hooligans. Sorapong Chatree plays a hooligan in bell-bottom jeans in a film that mirrors the youthful chaos of the year 1976. The movie was shot in 1976 at the time of the violent crackdown on leftist students and protestors that occurred in the grounds of Thammasat university. The three young hooligans are living thanks to small thefs (stealing goods, wallets...). They are in rebellion with the society, i.e. they like damaging public installation, breaking windows, frightening middle class people, eating in restaurant without paying. One of them is keen on drugs also. One of the hooligan is rebelling again the system as when he was soldier, he was told to kill communist villagers but those people were good people worshipping the King of Thailand so he lost faith in Thai official institutions. The Chief of police looking for them was his former military superior. When robbing a house and neutralizing the occupants, they get a gun. While stealing a car, they face a strong owner who fights them. He is shot dead. They become more and more violent. They are caught in a whirlpool. They rob banks and shot policemen. Followed by police, they finally find refuge in the South of Thailand around Yala where they continue their bank robbing. They get too much media coverage. Journalists called them Grounded gods as they can do whatever they want, they always escape and nobody can catch them. They have nothing to loose and know they will die sooner or later. Surrounded by the Police, they hide in the jungle and are captured by a muslim community. The community is fighting against Thai institutions also but have real motives. It is precursory regarding current violent events happening in South of Thailand. The three hooligans finally died under Police bullets. It reminds of Stanley Kubrik's ultra violent "Clockwork Orange" movie and Bonny and Clide story. It is unofficially claimed that Oliver Stone was inspired from "Grounded God" for his controversial "Natural Born Killers" as many parallels are visible.

Ithipon (Sorapong Chatree) is a police inspector (สารวัตร). He doesn't have a car (รถแข่ง) as he refuses any corrupting money from the mafia. 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.

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.

The Vainquisher is similar to a B grade movie. Lady Genja is expert in martial skills. She is working in Thai special forces as secret agent. During a mission in South Thailand, Genja is betrayed by her own organization but survives. Claire, her boss, is a treacherous lady. Two years later Genja is involved in an international terrorism threat involving CIA, Thai special forces, South Thailand islamic insurgents and Japanese Ninjas. Wajip, head of terrorists, is hidding in Bangkok. Genja has to face Claire again. English language is used in the main part of the movie as multinational teams are involved to catch Wajip. Sexy women and samourai fights cannot compensate the weak scenario and montage sequences. The owner of Sahamongkol Film International ordered all footage of Chotiros Suriyawong to be deleted from the movie "The Vanquisher" as she was rebuked for wearing a revealing outfit to the Subhanahongsa Awards. Following Tak Bai incident in South of Thailand, this action film was ordered to cut a scene showing gunmen opening fire into a mosque, or facing a ban.
