I haven't been this thrilled by a new star since I saw my first Jackie Chan movie.
August 30, 2005
Ong-Bak comes across like a low-budget, back-to-the-roots martial arts epic that wants to pay homage to the greatest heroes of the genre: Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan.
August 25, 2005
Jaa combines speed, strength, and fluidity in a convincing bid to turn wire stunts into yesterday's fad and return simple physical prowess to the forefront.
August 13, 2005
According to the supplemental materials, the French just can't get enough of Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior.
July 21, 2005
Suddenly The Matrix looks about as relevant as VHS tapes.
June 16, 2005
The fights and chases ooze an authenticity that makes up for the lackluster and ridiculously underdeveloped story.

Ficarei muito espantando caso o fantástico Tony Jaa não se torne um astro internacional do gênero ação/artes marciais.

It's too soon to tell if Tony Jaa has the the ability to sustain an interesting career, but he's off to a hell of a start, regardless.
April 14, 2005
Jaa emerges as a worthy successor to Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li, dispensing brutality that has never looked so perversely beautiful.
April 5, 2005
Has an authentic tone that makes its simplistic quest-for-redemption storyline surprisingly engaging.

About the only CGI illusion occurs when the bad guy exhales cigarette smoke through the blowhole of his tracheotomy. But Pinkaew isn't blowing smoke: this is the real deal.
March 14, 2005
Watching Tony Jaa... provides the same thrill as watching those early Jackie Chan movies. This guy is the real deal.
March 12, 2005
The story is dumb and the paper-thin characters are motivated only by the needs of the plot. But man, those action scenes!
March 11, 2005
Its plot is pretty much standard-issue. But the action is spectacular enough to allow the audience to overlook that problem.

Get a load of this guy, the way he leaps over cars, slides under SUVs. Experience the man bringing the pain and unleashing wrath. Gaze with wide eyes at his jackhammer fists.
March 9, 2005
Tony Jaa doesn't possess the authority of Lee, the charisma of Chan or the intensity of Li, though he does project the same sleepy-eyed blandness as Van Damme.
March 6, 2005
Your jaw will hit the floor and stay there as (Tony) Jaa persistently defies both gravity and physics.
