Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior Thai stuntman Tony Jaa makes his starring debut in this martial arts action film directed by Prachya Pinkaew. Ja plays Ting, a young man living in a village in rural Thailand. Discovered as an infant on the steps of the town's temple and raised by monks who taught him the Thai martial art of muay thai, Ting is sent to Bangkok when the head of the town's statue of the Buddha, to which they pray to bring the annual rains to their drought-stricken region, is stolen. The country boy is plunged into the big city's seething criminal underworld, and forced to use his fighting skills to dispatch a parade of thugs in an underground fight club on his way to finding the criminal mastermind who stole the Buddha head so he can return it before drought and starvation bring his hometown to ruin. ~ Tom Vick, Rovi
Rising action star

Now that the Jet li's and Jackie Chans are waning with age creeping up, who is the next asian action star to pass the torch to? Tony Jaa is a definate strong candidate with his sharp entry of Ong Bak. With his flexibility and real mui thai kick boxing skills, he reinvents and makes a fresh impact in to the action genre. Albiet, even in his own tongue, he lacks some acting appeal, but his prowess more than makes up for it. I havent felt the pain thru the screen so vividly or just be plainly surprised with the amount of moves our bodies are able to do even after so many years of action film! Every fistcuffs afectionado should own this.

one of the best martial arts films ever
Posted by: zema from: bellingham, wa on
tony jaa is awesome in this movie. his stunts are amazing, and the film shows lots of the in different angles so you don't have to rewind the movie to see the stunt again.
if you can watch subtitles while watching the movie i'd suggest that, but if you can't multitask you can dub it in english.
very cool movie even if you've never watched a martial arts film!

Really good for martial arts fans
Posted by: Travis2310 from: Florida on
If you love martial arts, you will definitely love this movie. My friend in my martial arts class let me borrow the movie to watch, and I enjoyed it from start to finish.
Tony Jaa deserves to have his name mentioned with the likes of Jackie Chan, Jet Li, and I would even say Bruce Lee (maybe a bit overboard...)
But the fighting scenes were beautiful and captured the essence of Muay Thai perfectly. Great movie!
