On DVD with English subs: Hanuman the White Monkey Warrior

Rarely do I pay attention when a DVD of Thai film is released in Thailand. Hardly ever, when browsing in the shops, do I bother to even pick up a DVD box to note whether it has English subtitles. Because they almost ever do. And I've grown weary of the soul-crushing disappointment.

And why is it the movies I don't really want to watch again have the subtitles?

One of these is Hanuman the White Monkey Warrior, released by Phranakorn Film. It has English subtitles.

So, if you're into a dose of surprisingly violent, overly melodramatic action and fantasy, then Hanuman the White Monkey Warrior is for you. The rather loopy, long-winded tale has to do with ancient magical tattoos that confer superpowers on their wearers. Actor Sornram Theppitak stars as the hero who has the powers of Hanuman, the monkey god. He's up against a trio of sneering, cannibalistic foreigners played by Damian Mavis, Dean Alexandrou and Anton Kalin.

eThaiCD has it, if you want it.

  1. Then, how do you watch Thai movies if you don't understand it.

  2. Lyn, I'm not sure I'll ever understand Thai movies, even at the cinema, where they have subtitles.

Please, no questions about where to download movies or subtitle files.

Please read the FAQ about Thai films on DVD before asking about where to find a Thai movie on DVD with English subtitles.
