Ong Bak: The Thai WarriorHD Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
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.
Fresh: An effective martial arts film destined to leave mouths agape.
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.
Fresh: You can rightly say that Jaa has yet to establish much of a character, but give him a chance.
DUBBED ENGLISH VERSION
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.
