One of the best martial arts films ever,
This review is from: Ong-Bak (Single Disc Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
The martial arts in this film rival that of even the legendary Bruce Lee, as it is more breath-takingly acrobatic, but without the use of naff 'house of flying daggers' hanging in the air nonsense. The stunts in this are genuine and it's a wonder how the actors survived making this film. The story is quite good also, unlike a lot of kung fu movies. You gotta see it if you like beat em' ups, martial arts in general and especially if you like Muay Thai.

I have to agree.
This is an absolute masterpiece of beautifully executed martial arts. I fist watched this film in Thai without subs and remained captivated throughout. Although the plot is relatively simple, it acts as the perfect backdrop for the emergence of each fight scene.
One of my favourite films of all time - up there with Enter the Dragon.
