No stunt doubles, no computer images, no strings attached

When the head of a statue sacred to a village is stolen, a dutiful but endearingly naive young martial artist is charged to go to the big city and finds himself taking on the underworld to retrieve it...

Having drawn incredible comparisons to Bruce Lee and an early Jackie Chan, Thai sensation, Tony Jaa, bursts onto the scene! Amazingly athletic, not to mention charismatic, Tony Jaa refuses to countenance the use of props (yes, that's real glass, barbed wire and metal spikes!), wire enhancement and faked blows. What full contact you see is most definitely what you get!

Added to this is a gleefully choreographed chase on the highways of Bangkok involving a fleet of tuk-tuk vehicles (the three-wheeled taxi iconic to Thailand), knowing location photography (visitors to the capital will recognise Khao San Road and the exterior of top nightclub hangout Suzy's Pub) and, most of all, an affecting story of one man's struggle to uphold village traditions against Western modernisation.

Am I the only one who this film was pretty bad? And there definately was some CGI
#6
Fantastic movie. Unbelievable stunts.

Looking forward to his next movie after 'The Warrior', which is another brilliant movie if you like martial arts.
#7
Brilliant film. Tony Jaa is just nuts.

And the only CGI in the film is that bit with the fire in his eye towards the end. The rest is all real. Which is just insane.

The only other thing he's been in is Warrior King, which is fairly similar in that its him being hard as nails with no wires and a really really bizarre story.

Warrior King is sometime referred to as Ong-Bak 2, which it blatantly isn't as its a whole bunch of different characters. Its also called "The Protector" in the US.

The good news is that according to IMDb.com Ong-Bak 2 is now in post production. No word on a release date though.

Hmmm, looks like it's back up to £15,99 now. Never mind:-(
