Ong-bak is one of the best action movies I have seen in a while. Set in Thailand, Ting must retrieve the stolen head of Ong-bak, village’s idol. This sends him into street fighting underworld of the big city. Ong-bak prides itself on it’s lack of movie magic during fight scenes with the tag-line “No stunt doubles, no computer images, no strings attached”. It is refreshing to see really realistic fighting on the screen. Since they don’t use any tricks there are many times where you’ll see the same scene from 2-4 different angles in a row. It’s kinda weird the first time you see this Deja Vu, but you get used to it. You should see this movie if you’re looking for some inventive chase scenes and lots of wire free fighting.
