5.0 out of 5 stars Flying without wires, 3 April 2006
This review is from: Ong Bak (2 Disc Special Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
You really have to see this guy to believe it with your own eyes. I believed all the hype only to be disappointed by the first hour of the film. Yes, there's some nice moves, some nice acrobatics, but that's about it. Then, you get to the caverns... Oh boy, are you in for a treat if you like your martial arts fast, furious and real (no wires, etc). This parallels Lee's 'Enter the Dragon' in many ways - the finale incorporating fights against mutliple adversaries, through caverns, using a variety of weapons, before the final one-on-one battle with the baddie. Jaa's style isn't as beautiful as Lee's, in general - lots of knees and elbows - but when this guy wants to kick! He just hangs in the air for about a day at a time, legs flying out in all directions. Incredible. And NO WIRES. The last 15 minutes is worth the price of the dvd alone.
