See it to believe it,
This review is from: Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior [Blu-ray]  [US Import] (Blu-ray)
Not recommended for UK customers as it's a US region blu-ray. Won't work on your player unless it is an all region one.
The film itself is something you need to watch to experience it. Bruce Lee is a legend but Ja is no less either. To think that the film utilizes none of the CGI and wire technology of these times and still shows such amazing stunts by Ja. I personally loved the film because of it's raw depiction of Muay Thai; the knee and elbows were a treat to watch. Ja is very good at mixing stuff as well so unlike the grace and speed of Kung Fu that we saw in Lee's movies, what we see here are the deadly power blows that are visibly highly lethal.
Of course if someone's dumb enough to be looking for a 'Gone with the Wind' storyline in films like these he/she would be disappointed but for all the martial arts fans out there add this one to your collection because you won't get bored watching this over and over.
