ONG BAK: THE THAI WARRIOR (Theatrical Release Thailand 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior shows the impressive acrobatic skill and martial art mastery of Tony Jaa and intersperses that activity with outstanding action scenes that show remarkable creativity and freshness. The movie can easily impress a United States audience. The story itself does not work as fresh and unique, but the action completely overcomes that lack. Be aware that many of the fight scenes run toward brutal.
