Editorial Reviews:

When the head of his village's sacred Buddha statue is stolen, simple country boy Ting (Tony Jaa) is sent to Bangkok to retrieve it. Raised by a monk who has trained him in Muay Thai, Ting has vowed to never use his lethal martial arts skills. But once he arrives in the big city, Ting is forced to fight. It's non-stop action as Ting infiltrates Bangkok's seedy underworld and takes on a series of lowlifes and criminals in his quest to obtain the sacred head.

Summary: Unbelievably Cool Martial Arts, Insane Stunts!
Comment: This movie is unbelievably cool. All the stunts are the real deal, and Tony Jaa does some crazy stunts! In any other movie, showing instant replays of the same stunt three or four times in a row would be really cheesy. But for some reason when Ong-Bak does it, every replay manages to be cooler than the last. And the pacing is good, too; the action builds over the course of the movie, with quite the finale. Definitely a good movie to watch with a bunch of guys and a pizza. The acting, of course, is mediocre. But its not intolerably so. In fact, for a foreign film, its surprisingly good. Asian films are notorious for their melodramatic acting. Anyway, you dont watch this movie for the acting. You watch it to see Tony Jaa kick some butt using a martial arts style like nothing youve ever seen.

Summary: Tony Jaa defies the laws of physics
Comment: I personally liked the Protector a little better than Ong-Bak, but even that in mind, this movie still rocked my face off. Amazing action sequences that would make Jackie Chan's bones ache just WATCHING Tony. And I'm a big JC fan, so that is saying something. The fights do not have quite the diversity that The Protector does, but Ong-Bak still runs circles around most other martial arts flicks. It is absolutely worth it.

Summary: This movie kickas @$$
Comment: So if you are a fan of fighting movies, you HAVE to have this movie! Jony Jaa is a Thai kick boxer who could destroy Jackie Chan or Jet Li in a fight. Plus this movie has a lot of acrobatics with NO special effects or wires! It's very impressive, simple, and memorable. I recommend it to people who like Asian movies or fighting movies.
