Tony Jaa is a high flyer Muay-Thai fighter and his moves are impressive. His athletic performance compares to Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan, and Jet Li. Ong-Bak really shows off Jaa's unique style of fighting. If you are into foreign action than this is a must see.

I tried to watch this. not sure if it was because I was so tired when trying out if it was that bad... but the story was horrid. Fight scenes were mediocre. Nowhere close to IP Man.

though the movie itself isn't very good, Still can't deny Tony Jaa is a very exciting martial arts action star worth watching... The stunts he does are insane and very well can bring in a new era of great martial artists on screen surpassing greats as Jackie Chan, Jet Li to name a few.

The storyline is stock and the acting is pretty dull, but the cinematography and Jaa's space-time bending acrobatics more than make up for it.

It's a shame Tony Jaa is not doing anything else with himself. Because this is one of my favorite martial arts movies. And he's the best part of it!

Out side of Jaa's remarkable stunts, this movie is empty.

Really enjoyed this movie. For the cheesy kung fu

An average martial arts movie showcasing Tony Jaa, a Thai stuntman. The story is cliched and obvious, but the fight scenes are gritty and realistic. Not much of the impossibly long "flight" or "air" sequences found in most movies of this type, however some moves are repeated several times for some odd reason. Decent enough to see once.

The film that got me into martial art films - When I saw it described as better than a crouching tiger hidden dragon but with no wires or cgi I had to check it out and I was not disappointed. The plot might be thin, but then what martial art film isn't and the fights make up for it. Tony Jaa is skilled and likeable, going as far as to burn himself (accidentally) for a stunt. The fight scenes are filmed and choreographed great and knowing there's no wires or cgi makes them even better.

The script ain't worth shite! What makes this film special... is the beautifully choreographed and extraordinary martial arts, the parkour and the vessel housing this talent Mr. Tony Jaa! The lack of CGI and so called Wire Fu, and stunt doubles makes this film even more impressive!

Ong-Bak has elements of great kung-fu movies but some of the absurd CG stunts diluted the otherwise enjoyable if not flawed film. Still some great fight scenes for fans of the genre.

This is Tony Jaa at his best. Brilliant action film flexing the creative muscles of his Muay Thai background with some flash thrown in for fun. A top 3 pick for all time greatest martial arts films. The characters are likable enough with a little humor thrown in (watch the unedited version- the sidekick has the best name in movie history). The story is enough to get you from one fight to the other but like most good action movies, it leaves something to be desired. Great choreography, diverse fighting styles represented and amazing stunts performed by a true genius of martial arts. But if you're watching for the story, maybe the Chinese drama action flicks (ie:Crouching Tiger) are better suited for you.

Great entertainement. Only missing an actual scenario, but hey, this is a martial art movie.
Mix Jackie Chan stunts with Jet Li's fists and Thai culture, add a tuk-tuk (car) chase and a stupid side kick, and well... It's fun. Really.

"A jaw-dropper of a star-making display from lithe fighter-artist Tony Jaa." Amazing stunts, fights and chases. "Genius. Perfection. Thai-style fighting with sequences that will make you shout at the screen." "What Jaa does is often mesmerizing."

Incredible fight movie!! It was intense, gritty, brutal, and action-packed!! The movie will keep you hanging on to the edge of your seat if you are a fight fan!! Tony Jaa reminded of Bruce Lee, Jet Li, and Jackie Chan!! Yes, this guy is that amazing at fighting!! This is absolutely a must-see for fight fans!!
