Ong Bak Absolutely rules! posted 14 March 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionOng Bak Absolutely rules! by tellner, Peralogue

It rocks. It rolls. It rules.

The martial arts are superb. The stunts were breathtaking. The acting is as good as you'd expect or a bit better for an action movie. Tony Jaa has immense skill and physical presence. And the story has a Thai sensibility. The hero isn't what's important. In fact, he doesn't even appear in the last scene. It's the village and the Buddha who are in the center of the action.

Go see it. But try not to watch the bootleg VCD. It came with two sets of subtitles and dubbing in two languages, all of which appeared at the same time. view post
