Ong Bak: Thai For “Holy Crap, That HAS To Hurt!”

Ong BakMartial arts fans, have you seen Ong Bak? If not, Netflix it, grab it from Blockbuster, do whatever you have to do in order to see this movie.
I won’t bore you with the details of the “plot”, such as it is. However, the fight scenes are some of the most vicious I’ve ever seen in a martial arts flick. The Muay Thai/Tae Kwon Do hybrid style employed by its star, Tony Jaa, is a sight to behold. Ong Bak mixes a bit of Jackie Chan-esque chase scenes with the fight scenes for a bit of variety, including the requisite tuk-tuk chase through the streets of Bangkok.
If you’ve an ounce of interest in martial arts films, run, don’t walk to your local video distribution outlet and grab Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior.
