Ong-Bak PG-13, 1 hr. 47 min. "Thai stuntman Tony Jaa makes his starring debut in this martial arts action film directed by Prachya Pinkaew. Ja plays Ting, a young man living in a village in rural Thailand. Discovered as an infant on the steps of the town's temple and raised by monks who taught him the Thai martial art of muay thai, Ting is sent to Bangkok when the head of the town's statue of the Buddha, to which they pray to bring the annual rains to their drought-stricken region, is stolen. The country boy is plunged into the big city's seething criminal underworld, and forced to use his fighting skills to dispatch a parade of thugs in an underground fight club on his way to finding the criminal mastermind who stole the Buddha head so he can return it before drought and starvation bring his hometown to ruin. ~ Tom Vick, Rovi" This has been on my radar for years but I never got around to seeing it. It's now available on Netflix and I plan on taking advantage. Ong-bak is a martial arts action movie and stars Tony Jaa who received incredible reviews and was compared to both Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee for this performance. Jaa hasn't really done much that I'm aware of since, other than Ong-bak sequels which have not been as favourably reviewed. Still, this movie has an impressive RT score of 86% so crappy sequels not withstanding I'm looking forward to watching this!
