Haven't seen a good movie in a while? Need some excitement in your life? Lost all faith in mankind? This movie is the answer. Just when it seems as though the only movies showing in theatres are forgettable action garbage that are only slightly more exciting than your popcorn, along comes Ong Bak.
As everyone has already said, the martial arts are mindblowing. I'm not even that big of a fan of Kung Fu movies, but this movie blew me away. It takes beating the living hell out of people and turns it into an art. Like I said, everyone agrees the moves are beyond amazing.
The other great thing about this movie is that it's laugh out loud funny. When you're not yelling out "OOOHHH" with the rest of the audience, you'll either be laughing your head off, or stunned into silence.
Oh, and one last thing that's great, is that the movie doesn't waste any time falling into the "lead guy has to have a hot girlfriend by the end" trap....no time is wasted on some stupid romantic sub-plot, it's all just high paced wicked action.
Watch it. You'll still be smiling about it way after the credits have rolled.
