A Prayer Before Dawn is the remarkable true story of Billy Moore, a young English boxer incarcerated in two of Thailand’s most notorious prisons. He is quickly thrown into a terrifying world of drugs and gang violence, but when the prison authorities allow him to take part in the Muay Thai boxing tournaments, he realizes this might be his chance to get out. Billy embarks on a relentless, action-packed journey from one savage fight to the next, stopping at nothing to do whatever he must to preserve his life and regain his freedom. Shot in a an actual Thai prison with a cast of primarily real inmates, A Prayer Before Dawn is a visceral, thrilling journey through an unforgettable hell on earth.



  • Very realistic, worth watching

    This is a very real movie, impressive in that respect. And the acting was good. The movie is worth watching. That being said, the writing wasn't very good.
  • Awesome

    This movie is technique over story. Well done, bit about nothing.

    I waited months for this relase and it was everything I hoped it would be. Incredibly raw with it being in a real Thai prison. I have also loved joe cole and his preformance was really convincing, all the different emotions of drug abuse, addiction, prison, prison in a foreign country and boxing for your life. Something that will get you feeling as you watch. Definitely love.
  • Noy based on the book

    The movie does not reflect the True Story as written on the book. The movie was different from the book. The character was real but the story was not. The only thing similar is a british boxer in a Thai prison. The story was all made up in the movie but not based on the book.

  • How can such a good premise be so boring

    By RaduRanga
    The movie tries to be intersting by develpoing a multi dimensional picture of what's sure to be an interesting character. Ultimately, the various story threads that are opened never materialize into anything. All we left with is predictable fight scenes and tired prison bravado cliches.
  • such a good movie
