Plot Summary

Tony Jaa, the fighting superstar “destined for film’s martial arts pantheon,” (New York Daily News) electrifies as a religious young warrior who swears an oath of peace. But when a gangster steals the head of Ong-Bak, his village’s deity, Ting heads for Bangkok to get it back. In a film Time magazine calls “exhilarating” with relentless, fever-pitched action free of stunt doubles and special effects, Jaa performs some of the most awesome physical feats ever seen on film.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The artifice-free antidote to such F/X enervation -- a jaw-dropper of a star-making display from lithe fighter-artist Tony Jaa, framed by a plot as bare-bones as a backroom boxing ring. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: An effective martial arts film destined to leave mouths agape. – Andrew Sun, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: If Jaa's able to add a bit of spark to his acting, he'll make a real run at capturing an international audience. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: You can rightly say that Jaa has yet to establish much of a character, but give him a chance. – John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews


The entire dubbed english version is translated incorrectly and is SHAMEFUL that iTunes DOES NOT even include subtitles with the original Thai language. This is a great fighting movie, but the dubbed english brings discredit to Thailand and it's culture.

The preview your using

Is the Korean release preview. All the title graphics are in Korean, despite that it's a Thai production. Not that that's a big deal, it would just be nice to see at least some cultural saavy from an international media company like Apple. Also, I would contend that ascribing Korean characters to the titles in lieu of Thai script betrays some of the nuance for an American audience.

Don't buy, dubbed version

Great movie, but iTunes fails to tell you it's the dubbed english version not the original. Save your money.
