Time Out

The clunking storyline is a real drag, and the movie is essentially hobbled because the nominal lead is a rock performer not a martial artist.

This is London

The few women in the cast look aghast at what is going on.

Times [UK]

Fireball is a preposterously idiotic Thai movie about an illegal underground blood sport that mixes martial arts and, er, basketball to produce four incredibly long, and hugely tedious, fight sequences.

If fireball had an idealistic, Jimmy Hill-style commentator, he'd describe this film as a poor advertisement for the game.

Shadows on the Wall

While the title refers to a rather outrageous game that mixes kickboxing with basketball, this is actually a routine gangland thriller. And it's directed in a style that prevents us from understanding the action or caring about the characters.

Observer [UK]

The plot is a pretext for nonstop, bone-crushing mayhem of a mind-numbing kind.

Empire Magazine

This mostly routine Thai actioner mixes sports movie clichés, martial arts moves, melodramatic excess and gangster claptrap in the kind of movie Van Damme made in the '80s.

The ball games are so over-edited and CGI-embellished, it's like watching a hardcore version of Quidditch.

Good Thai underground sport-action film. The action scenes are fantastic, not to mention bloody. People are impaled, bones are broken, flying kicks and punches… More

Turn off your brain and enjoy the bone-crunching madness. People who find basketball boring may enjoy this version a bit more.
