I never heard of this film, nor does it look that great. But it is a 2-million dollar action B-movie film. They say that there is a lot of gun-kata in it. It's too bad it looks too amateurish. The trailer is on youtube.

The Thai Pal DVD is anamorphic, DD 5.1 English and sold for $11.50 at http://www.ethaicd.com/show.php?pid=52578

Naaaa. I just dont picture myself sitting through this film, even if someone gave me this film for free. A couple years ago, I bought a similar martial arts movie (low budget production values) called The Adventures of Johnny Tao and I just couldnt watch more than 5 minutes of it.

What about u?

Why is it called gun-kata, is it filled with some sort of 4D weapons? (like up-down, front-back or left-right, 4th dimension is ana-kata).

Dont know. All i know is that they are doing the same kind of "gun ballet" shooting as in Equilibrium according to online reviews.

The trailer is pretty funny.
The lead dude looks like the guy from Uncharted:Drake's Fortune.

Didn't that movie starring Milla Jovovich have gun kata in it? (it sucked right?) Also directed by Kurt Wimmer, Equilibrium director and inventor of gun kata.

The movie you're thinking of is UltraViolet (http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/22713/ultraviolet/). It has all sorts of stupid action scenes in it, but no gun-kata (as it was depicted in Equilibrium).

The rooftop scene of Mila vs. the Asian gang was a bit gun-kataish I guess, best scene in the movie as well...

Ballistica would have to work very hard to be worse than Ultraviolet.
