    So, the filmmakers:
    - removed Shang as a love interest and mutated him into 2 clueless soldiers who can’t tell a male from a female;
    - replaced a fast-talking dragon (Mushu) with a silent multi-coloured phoenix;
    - gifted Jason Scott Lee with another token Hollywood Asian role; and
    - dropped my fav song from the animated film, I’ll Make A Man Out Of You, from the soundtrack.

    Pointless.

    Just surprised that they didn’t additionally cast John Lone and hand director duties to John Woo.

    Aka The Female Joker. With an updated soundtrack (fast forward a decade after said Joker). But amazing and glorious film nonetheless. Favourite moment: when the Rolling Stones introduced themselves… 😉

    Never knew a handful of 2B pencils, optical answer sheets and a pseudo SAT test can create so much suspense and melodrama… and all in Thai! Great film from beginning to end, with the obligatory dilemmas thrown in for the occasional shake-up of what is essentially a straightforward morality tale. What is lacking, perhaps, is a kick-ass Thai hard rock soundtrack to match the adrenaline-pumping pace of the most suspenseful movie I’ve seen in years!
