Turned out to be rather enjoyable...

Now, I am not familiar with the Thai legend of the Sming, but that didn't really prove to be a problem in order to enjoy the 2014 movie based on said legend.¨ As luck would have it, I happened to get a chance to sit down and watch the 2014 movie "Sming" from writer and director Pan Visitsak here in 2020. And given my fascination with the Asian cinema, of course I found the time to do so. However, I must say that I wasn't particularly much a fan of the movie's cover/poster, because it was just too far out there. Turns out that writer and director Pan Visitsak actually managed to conjure up an enjoyable and entertaining movie here. I will say that I was genuinely entertained with the storyline and the events that transpired on the screen. The characters in the movie were interesting, and they had a good ensemble of casted actors and actresses to portray the various roles and characters. I can't really claim to be familiar with anyone on the cast; which is actually something I enjoy in a movie. It is always nice to watch new talents and faces on the screen. "Sming" is a movie that was relying heavily on the use of CGI in order to bring the shape-shifting Sming to life on the screen. And most of the time it worked out quite well, because the CGI team managed to animate the tiger in a realistic enough manner. But at times the tiger was just painstakingly CGI animated, and when the half-man and half-tiger creatures were on the screen, it just shifted to something atrocious that looked like something out of a 1990s PC game. That was some questionable and dubious CGI work at best. However, I was entertained from the beginning and right up to the end. And I liked the twist to the storyline that writer and director Pan Visitsak threw in towards the end. My rating of "Sming" is a well-deserved six out of ten stars.

A shape shifting tiger which traps souls of its victims. Nice concept but poor execution due to low budget, nonetheless...

Its a one time watch for creature films fans but don't expect ripping n munching. The plot - A hunter saves a young boy from a tiger by killing it. It turns out that the tiger's mother is a supernatural shapeshifting ferocious beast which uses illusions to kil people. The beast wreaks havoc on the hunter's family n village. As more and more people r killed, many fellas join in the task to kill the beast and soon a deadly games unsues blurring the line between the hunter and the hunted. If only the budget was good, the makers wud have done some good gore effects with lottuva kills. A decent effort by a first time director.
