    Anyone seen it? :bowdown: It is a true action movie in my opinion. It has no nonsense like a love story involved (which always seem to happen in any action movie, save perhaps Bruce Lee).

    Tony Jaa(sp?) is an amazing martial artist, his choice being Kraba Krabong which for some reason looks as though it implements Muay Thai. He is extremely badass in this flick, and is using no types of support (ropes, cables, stuntmen, etc). He does his own stuff, great to see. I mean can you jump over a car(not the hood)but the height of a car with your feet in front of you??? Crazy... I know I can't. Elbows and knees are his weapon of choice, crazy the amount of punishment he can dish out.

    This man's athletic ability makes the movie damn enjoyable. It has more than enough fight scenes and enough nonfight scenes to keep you saying "ohhhhh" and "ahhhhh". I know I did numerous times.

    The story is based on the head of a buddha called the Ong Bak that is stolen from a village. Tony Jaa (Ting) vlounteers to retrieve it and the typical action movie plot happens. Fight badguys, find out where it is, fight more badguys, almost get it, fight more bad guys, fight more bad guys, and finally get to it and have to fight more bad guys. Very much an action film only.

    here is a review:
