    Default Prayer Before Dawn (2018)

    New film out. True story of an English boxer who is locked up in one of Thailand's notorious prisons and fights Muay Thai tournaments to gain his freedom. Seem to remember the guy was in trouble again and couldn't make the film premire. Just downloading so can't say if it's any good.

    Having watched the film last night, one thing comes to mind. I'd never want to get in trouble here. Horrific place to end up. Klong Prem Central Prison. Funny, if you Google it up, it has a 4 star rating

    Out of 10, I would give it a 6. Not sure how true to life the story was, but that guy went to hell and back.

    Very slow start, but gets better near the end. Its a bit one dimensional for me, a diary of events and even thru he is living in a Thai prison never seems to much of the language, or even his prisoner number. Worth watching, but its not not up their with the likes of Midnight Express, or the French 2010 prison film Un Prophet. Or The Raid, where the building becomes a prison.
