A three part series would be good too. A movie is not long enough to develop anything lol. The only thing is, this is an original story by Off so it's like, can he pull it off ahahhahahah but he mentioned recently that he has two movies lined up so I have to think that Nakee 3 is one of them. They should reconsider tho.Most of the comments from last years included Nadech so handsome or Yaya's Esan was on point, etc. and not too many comments regarding the details of the movie except for the ending spoiler lol. Fast forward a year later, I was lucky enough to watch it with the help of a friend. I didn't have much expectation because after seeing so much hypes about other popular Thai movies, most were alright and some were outright boring. So my initial thought was that I'll be watching Nakee2 to see Nadech's handsome face and hear Yaya's Esan speaking skills. First pass, I thought it was better than average but had to rerun it since the dialogues, although not much, were very fast and there were no subtitles in Thai or English.
The first moment Nadech "wai" and said hello at the police station, the tone of his voice - I knew this character was like no other I've seen from his past lakorns roles such as cop Ramin or bodyguard/soldier Dawin, nor were his other playful/hot-headed ones like Fai or Ryu. What can I say about Yaya's Soi, except... I think she should have won the movie leading actress award award for this role instead of Jane in BOTY ( I saw that movie in the US and although she was great - I've seen that character/role in her lakorns before). Just seem to me that she had to put more into her role as Soi. In Nakee2, she doesn't have much dialogues, but for all her speaking parts I thought she was convincing as a Esan village girl. I wished the movie was at least 2 hours or more for background stories or information, but since I knew some details from the lakorn Nakee, I was able to follow the story. Also hearing spoilers from last year, I was anticipating the clues and hints and it made sense (at the end) whereas it would have confused some viewers with no prior information. Overall, after watching it 3 times, I like it very much! The two village cops made this movie very entertaining and their side comments here and there were hilarious. Their funny dialogues when they first met Pongprag in police station; chasing the criminal; at various crime scenes, etc. The caucasian monster hunter - what a joke, but a brief joke lol. This movie might be scary for some, but I was able to watch it since it's not "ghost" related. There were some gore scenes and multilated corpses, etc. so be prepared to look away lol.
Agree that Nakee 3 would be better as lakorn or at least, a 3-episodes mini series because I need a lot of explaining between Soi and Pongprap's true identities and how they will have a happy ending, assuming it's a happy ending.
