Thoughts

The highest grossing Thai film of 2017 and it is based on a true incident. The story was told like a heist movie and exam halls were presented as the building block for creating tension. It may not deliver a good message to the viewers, but I was enthralled by the concept and the corrupted school system was nicely shown by the director. On a serious note, it reminds me of my entire school-college life, Cheating was my favorite thing to do at that time and To be frank I always outrun my opponents. Overall, it's a fresh approach towards the crime-thriller genre and an incredibly fun movie to watch.
