Ong Bak 1974
22 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a pleasure to plop down $20 for a 20 movie box and find this gem I never would have watched otherwise. I hereby notify fans of the genre this is a must see movie. Be warned the copy is poor but I've seen worse. The voiceovers were not annoying at all. The story was - let me just call it "Ong Bak 1974" since there are so many parallels (except no elephants). The action must be judged by 1974 standards. All of the paler stunt men were pretty pathetic. They performed more as punching bags than posing any real threat. Ron was good and Jason better. So with this coming out in 1974 why wasn't he the next Bruce Lee? Keep your eyes open for some future leading men just standing around.
