Cinema-Maniac: Ong-Bak (Ong Bak: Muay Thai Warrior)(2005) Review

After reviewing several non martial art movies in the following days, I decided to watched Ong Bak because of it popularity and reputation. I was not disappointed and I got to see one of the best martial art movie ever made.

The story is simple, but effective. When the head of a statue sacred to a village is stolen, a young martial artist goes to the big city and finds himself taking on the underworld to retrieve it. The story may not get better, but it works with a great cast of characters that actually fit into this world.

The action sequences are some of the best ever filmed in a Martial movie. There should be enough action to entertain any action fan if you’re not into the story. It’s the complete package when it comes to this movie, good story and great action.

No doubt that Thailand action movies became popular after the release of this movie. Even though I feel Tony Jaa other movies haven’t captured the jaw dropping action he’s capable of, it’s no doubt that this movie is remain a classic and in the hearts of any Martial Art movie fan.
