Booting lives in a small and peaceful village. One day a sacred Buddha statuette called Ong Bak is stolen from the village by an immoral businessman. It soon becomes the task of a voluntary young man, Boonting (Phanom Yeeram), to track down the thief in Bangkok and reclaim the religious treasure. Along the way, Boonting uses his astonishing athleticism and traditional Muay Thai skills to combat his adversaries.Written by
The single greatest action movie ever made! I can't guarantee that no one was hurt during the filming of this movie though. What this movie lacks in plot, it makes up in flying knees! Tony Jaa definitely knows how to throw them 'bows. If you're looking for pure action with "no strings attached" then this is the movie to watch. It's funny even if you're watching it with subtitles. The supporting cast is quite amusing to watch and listen. They keep it interesting. The action begins right from the start and doesn't let up until the end. It's the fastest 105 minutes of movie you'll ever see. I can only hope for a sequel or at least other movies with Tony Jaa. Ong-Bak is worth watching several times - I know I will!
