Professional Review of "Ong Bak AKA: Muay Thai Warrior (Hong Kong Version)"

April 27, 2004

This professional review refers to Ong Bak AKA: Muay Thai Warrior (Hong Kong Version)
Ong Bak caused more than a stir when it was released to the megaplex's in Bangkok (I know, I was there at the time) and when it was released into international markets it caused an even bigger stir, in fact Ong Bak is one of those outstanding films that have brought massive recognition of the Thai film industry.

Ong Bak has an undemanding story at best, and before I go any further I'll let you know that this doesn't matter one bit. The story is solely constructed just so that we can see Ting (Ja Panom) run around and beat people into a fine mash; take for example George (Mum Jok-mok), who is only in this film to land Ting in compromising situations where beating guys down is the only key to survival.

Well since the name of the game in Ong Bak is style over substance, like in many other films that have arrived in our cinema's of late, I'm happy to see that it then brings with it, something that I have missed, that is, REAL hard hitting action. Ong Bak makes absolutely no use of wire crews and CGI, and with an actor who can slide under a moving car while doing the splits, I guess those luxuries aren't needed.

Essentially, the entire film is shot to put emphasis on Ting's prowess and Prachya Pinkaew opts for an effective variety of setups that achieve this. Most of the time the films fight scenes are framed wide, while rarely cutting into close ups (compared to contemporary martial arts films). This type of staging takes on an un-contrived view of the fight sequences, allowing the best view of Ting, executing one of his awe inspiring flying elbows. The chase sequences are again shown in a way to boast Ting's athleticism. The chases are pretty much all staged along a lateral plane of action where a set of obstacles are impeding the path of our mighty hero; much like an old video game, we see Ting run in frame, jumps through a ring of barbed wire, and then exits the frame, ready for the next obstacle.

I can find nothing disappointing about this film, and being a self confessed martial arts film fan, I couldn't resist pushing this film to the top 5 of my all time greatest films list.

Best of Tony Jaa Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
I have been a Tony Jaa fan for quite some time now and Ong Bak still is one the best martial arts film he's been in.The story is thin but soon as the action starts you wont care about the plot because you'll be amazed of all the stunts and fights that Tony does in this film.What I also liked about Ong Bak was the fact it brings back those old school action style and shows it in a unique kind of way.

The Australian 2 disc version of Ong Bak is quite good.Disc one has both the Luc Besson's edit and the Thai version.I did enjoy Luc Besson's edit and I could tell how he and his French techno group tweeked it from starts to finish.What I did NOT like about the Australian edition is that they toned down the audio which is on the Thai version,and I think the reason they did it was to make the Luc Besson's edit much more acceptable.
If you really want to enjoy Ong Bak then I suggest you buy the actual Thai dvd from yesasia or other websites.

The second disc is full of great extras and it wont dissapoint.The best extras are indeed Making of Ong Bak,alternate ending and the three minutes of stunts and fights demonstration by Tony Jaa.

Muay Thai es muy bueno! Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
In "Ong Bak", a ruthless dealer in cultural relics wants to buy an amulet from an old man in the village of Nong Pradu. To make the deal, he sends Don, one of his low-level henchmen who happens to come from that village. However, the old man cannot be persuaded to sell the amulet. Don doesn't want to return to his boss empty-handed, so he sneaks into the local temple and steals the head from Ong Bak, a statue of the Buddha. The villagers believe that, if Ong Bak's head is not restored before the date of a religious festival, an awful curse will befall the village. Pure-hearted orphan boy Ting (Tony Jaa) volunteers to travel to Bangkok to bring Ong Bak back.

When Ting arrives in Bangkok, he seeks the help of Humlae, who abandoned Nong Pradu years ago and now lives by his wits in the big city. Humlae at first wants nothing to do with Ting, even going so far as to deny that he is from Nong Pradu. However, once he gets a chance to see Ting's jaw-dropping Muay Thai fighting skills, Humlae decides to exploit those skills for his own benefit. Ting, however, is interested only in seeking the return of Ong Bak's head to the village. Ting is on a collision course with the gang of the ruthless relics dealer and Humlae will have to make a choice whether to throw in his lot with his origins in Nong Pradu or with Bangkok's underworld.

The single-minded character of Ting does not give Tony Jaa a chance to show off any acting chops, but that may be a good thing. Instead, the focus is on his extraordinary athleticism and fighting skills. Believe me, that's more than enough! He pulls off stunts that seem almost superhuman ... and then tops himself with something even more astounding. The character of Humlae provides the human interest of the film, as we see him wrestle with where his true loyalties must lie.

The story is mighty thin and a bit silly, but that really is beside the point. "Ong Bak" is an instant classic for its unparallelled martial arts mayhem. Watch it!

I really liked this movie. Tony Jaa is amazing...his flexibility, the stunts he pulls off. You are amazed to even watch him. The story line is ok, the only thing I did not like about the film was the cheesy music. I feel as though it took away from some of the scenes.

Ong Bak Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is what we need. More martial arts films like this. Absolutly stunning, very realistic and just simply breath taking. On making the film they wanted full contact fighters only, and this really shows how real the fight scenes are. The film locations are great, as were all the actors.
Watch Tony Jaa on the second disk, when he is on tour, and the making of the film. This man is superhuman. I just hope he carries on making films like this.
