    Jean Claude Van Damme.....watch this, THIS is how you kick! This is the first film I've seen with Tony Jaa in and I must say he has made me rewind and pause this film due to my shock at how he pulls out these incredible stunts! A great martial arts film with a number of memorable fight scenes. Don't steal Ong Baks head that's all i say, unless you want a mouth full of Tony Jaa's knees!

    much of this film is acceptable at best, but there are a few stand out things that make it a contemporary action classic.

    first, its sense of humor is perfectly laced throughout, without being too much, or not fitting in well. a few fun visual gags, mixed with some funny dialogue keeps the film energetic. there is a great, humorous, chase through the city about halfway through the film that is reminiscent of older Jackie Chan flicks.

    the best thing…

    “No computer graphics. No stunt doubles. No wires.” Add “All Awesome.” Ong-Bak heralded a new era of bone-crunching action with Muay Thai advocate Tony Jaa at its forefront. Before going mental and running off into the woods in search of enlightenment; before getting careless with his elephants; Jaa literally kneed, elbowed and kicked his way to instant-legend status with this simple tale of a peace-loving monk who would kick your balls through the top of your head with his freakin’…

    Muy buenas secuencias de peleas con su respectivo slow motion en la parte clave del golpe. Una historia bien llevada, aunque aquí Tony Jaa todavía no le actúa muy bien. El cine tailandés de artes marciales vuelve a poner este subgénero en el ambiente fílmico en los 00's.

    One of my favorite martial arts movies. Plus you see someone's leg get broken off with the power of muay thai.

    Pretty impressive fight scenes elevate what is a somewhat weak and generic plot. Ong Bak really seems like little more than an excuse for Tony Jaa to demonstrate his Muay Thai skills, with the plot just being a way to tie the fights together.

    While this argument can probably be made for most martial arts films, it is really stretching believability when there's a scene where obstacles are conveniently placed in the middle of a chase, just so Jaa can do some crazy stunts. Also, the film makes sure you notice the big moves by the use of instant replays.

    Still, the film was OK enough.

    Tony Yaa made sure I was entertained by this one. Offcourse he did it with his athletic ability, which is just epic. The flips and turns are nice to look at. Especially in that chase scene through the streets. The story is simple and won't be the reason why you should watch this. If you are going to watch this then it's for the fight scenes and Tony Yaa.

    Muay Thai master Tony Jaa choreographs and acts out some of the best martial arts fights I've ever seen on screen, certainly the best brand of blazing fisticuffs since Jackie Chan Fever swept the Western moviegoing world in the '90's. This bad boy should and DOES stand tall and proud with other such luminaries of the genre as Bruce Lee and the Shaw Bros. series of martial arts epics like One-Armed Boxer. There are so many "Whoa" moments of amazing…
