From Amazon.co.uk

No computer graphic can ever surpass what a real human body can do--and what the body can do is on spectacular display in Ong-Bak, a Thai action movie starring the lithe and flexible Tony Jaa. When the head is stolen from a holy statue in Jaa's rural village, he goes to Bangkok to get it back. Of course, it just so happens that the thief is connected to a bar where criminal big shots gamble over bare-knuckle brawls, and Jaa is--despite his virtuous efforts--drawn into the game. But that's only the beginning; a chase through the city streets rivals the ingenious acrobatics of Jackie Chan, with Jaa leaping between panes of glass, over a bicycle in motion, and through a wreath of barbed wire. Jaa's fighting prowess has been compared to Bruce Lee, Jet Li, and just about every other martial arts master, but he has an equal degree of charisma as well. He won't win acting awards, but his engaging presence carries the movie. One word of warning: The numerous fights will make you wince as much as gape in astonishment. Ong-Bak follows the action-flick tradition that the hero needs to be as battered as possible before he ultimately triumphs, and the battering is intense. --Bret Fetzer, Amazon.com

Product Description

Martial arts action set in Thailand. When the head of a statue sacred to a village is stolen, young Ting (Tony Raa) is selected by the villagers to travel to Bangkok and rescue the relic in time for an important ceremony that they hope will aleviate the drought in their region. Left on the temple steps as a baby, Ting was raised by the temple monks, who taught him the ancient martial art of muay thai but forbade him to use it in combat. But when Ting enters the seedy underbelly of Bangkok in search of the criminal genius who stole the sacred relic, he is forced to use his considerable martial arts skills to dispatch a host of evil henchman in a race against time to recover the relic before drought and starvation destroys his village.

5.0 out of 5 stars jet li might be leaving but now we have tony! 30 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Well from where can i start? This is one of those films that truly has to be seen to be believed, whether it be for the sheer madness of the tree climbing event the film opens with, the (already mentioned) chase through the alleys and back steets that will have all chuckling to themselves as Mr Jaa nods his head to the old master Jackie Chan with some excellent set pieces with trucks, panes of glass and of course the barbed wire.
Now there will be people who will moan that the plot is not what it could be, but let us remeber this film is not meant to spur your brain into overload with complex issues such as time travel or another example amnesia (hi donnie darko, memento) all this film asks for is for you to bear witness to what the human body is capable of when free of the insurance restraints hollywood movies are constantly dogged by, I defy you not to wince in sympathy for the spikey haired opponent that Jaa kicks so hard just below the kneecaps his legs are taken completely from under him, remember most of the blows in this film connect!
You will find that the female 'lead' annoys beyond all reason, just turn the volume down when she speaks (i'm conviced she has trouble with the local dogs when she talks, her pitch being that high) but Jaa's sidekick in the movie provides the comedy and also the ultimate sacrifice for the treasured Ong Bak, but like all great action heros Jaa steals the show with some amazing moves which haven't been seen on the big screen before and of course he gets the mother of all beatings before eventually emerging the victor.
So ladies and gentlemen with this film you are witnessing the dawn of our newest actionhero, so sit back and enjoy the ride because hopefully Mr Jaa and his amazing production team shall be around for a very long time to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Martial Arts Genuis 4 Feb 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I got this dvd for christmas after seing the trailer and being blown away by sheer amazement at Tony Ja's athletic ability.
The film is really good, and maybe it's true that the story isn't the best, but martial arts movies are not about the story, they are about martial arts!
Almost all of the stunts in this film are amazing, and you sometimes wonder how he does all those flips and kicks, and the action is well coreographed, keeping the kicks and jumps flowing.
The dvd itself is very good and well presented. You get the film, and also a great second disc with loads of special features including an amazing making of the stunts, so you can see the hard work that went into the market scene.
One minor niggle i have with the film is Tony Ja himself. People have likened him to Bruce Lee, and although Ja is very good, and his stunts and fights are amazing, he can not rival Bruce Lee. Ja has a lack of presence on the screen, whereas Bruce Lee filled the screen with presence. People wanted to BE Bruce Lee, whereas I get the feeling that people may just want to be able to do Ja's stunts.
That said, the film is a martial arts master piece, and definatly a film to get if you are remotely into anything martial arts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh My God Ong Bak Is AMAZING 9 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
Make no mistake this is the best martial arts fighting you will see in a film. There is no wires, no special effects and no holds barred. Jaa is simply amazing, the choreography is superb and all the stunts are fantastic. I agree the plot is a little fuzzy if you are not used to watching these types of films, but if you are then you can well understand that the plot isnt there to pull u in. Its the action that does that. The fight scenes are so realistic, it seems as if Jaa is not taking any prisoners. I normally hate movies where like 100 guys pile in ONE AT A TIME (likely in a real scrap?) and the hero defeats them all, which is why i like this film because Jaa just runs to fight another day. Really good film [...]10/10 no problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tony Jaa gives meaning to the word WOW! 5 April 2006
By Paul
Format:DVD
If, like me you are sometimes put off by far east, non-english speaking films because of the crummy dubbing or weak storylines then you have missed a real treat here. O.K, so the dubbing is crummy, up to the point of it being embarrasingly comical, but the storyline isn't too bad and the film has a humour to it that has a distingtive Western feel.
The film follows Ting, a young man (played by Tony Jaa) from a small Thailand village. Every 24 years the village celebrates the festival of Ong Bak; a religious festival that is supposed to bring prosperity to the village, however the evil Don has chopped of the head of their revered Budda statue and fled to the big city with it in his grasp. Cue for Ting to give hot pursuit. He arrives in the big city and seeks help from former friend George, but he finds George with problems of his own with debt and local gangsters. This is of course all just thinly vieled excuses for lots of fights and incredible set pieces.
What makes this film a cut above the average far east movie is the fact that the makers of the film are obviously fans of Western cinema. The humour in the film works on all levels and the storyline is recognisable to everybody. The support cast is surprisingly good, with George providing laughs, his friend and long suffering partner Muay backs him up very well, and the bad guys are all effective in their own unique way; in particular Mad Dog, he sends shivers down your spine even on screen.
Even with this strong support cast, Tony Jaa steals every scene. The whole gimmick of the film is based on the fact that no wires, trick photography or C.G.I was used; every stunt that you see him perform is really him doing it-and what he does is breathtaking.
