About this movie

Superstar Tony Jaa electrifies as a religious young warrior who swears an oath of peace. But when a gangster steals the head of Ong-Bak, his village’s deity, Ting heads for Bangkok to get it back. In a film Time magazine calls “exhilarating” with relentless, fever-pitched action free of stunt doubles and special effects, Jaa performs some of the most awesome physical feats ever seen on film.

Awesome, Awesome fighting sequences! But...the story...is ok. Tony Jaa has revealed himself to be one of the top present-day choreographic martial artists of all time! The elbows, knees, bone-cracking action, along with the way he seems to fly - no strings attached - in much of his jumping sequences! He is simply incredible to watch! The story is enjoyable enough to hold you over between fight scenes, but I just might be too American to appreciate it as much...

Really stinks that there's no option to change the audio to English. This is a problem with all of the Asian films like Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer, etc. Awesome movies with 0 option to hear them in English. Don't necessarily like reading all the words on a phone screen even if it is a Note. Especially not great on plane trips. I'd buy more good Asian films if they came with English audio options on Google. Because of this I always buy my Asian films on Blu-ray only.

Tony Jaa, does all his own stunts in this movie. There are no wires or CGI effects. it is a stunning display of authenticity. You can get this movie at Newbury Comics or get it from your local library and it will have the English audio with it. However it is a very, very good movie.
