During the 1950s – 1970s Thailand had an action hero in the form of Red Eagle. The character is getting a reboot, and there is plenty of action to keep you distracted from the subtitles.

A nuclear power plant is about to be commissioned upon the signing of corrupt and power hungry politicians. The citizens are in frenzy, as they oppose this plan but they cannot do a thing about it. And so, a hero was born, chasing down the criminals and the corrupt, killing of whatever threatens the city’s well being. He leaves a card with his name simply as “THE RED EAGLE”. However, the hero becomes the hunted, when the politicians send out their best defense, known as “THE BLACK DEMON”.

    I don’t know if it’s the “All your bases are belong to us” subs, but no thank you.

      Kind of a Jason Todd/Red Hood vibe too.

    It’s clear that Bruce Lee’s Kato has had a lasting effect on things… I’m interested.

    Looks kinda neat. And yeah I agree with the Red Hood/Kato observations.

    Not really something that I’m too interested in, but I like when stuff like this gets made. There’s probably somebody out there that in the ’50s or ’70s was a huge fan of this character and they are probably super excited to see that character being utilized again. I like that. I don’t like intellectual property dying, so seeing something from the “golden age” of Thai movies being brought back is cool.
