Favorite Foreign Films: Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior (2003)

Film: Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior

Country: Thailand
Director: Pracha Pinkaew

When the head of a small village’s sacred statue is stolen by a nefarious antiquities dealer, the best fighter in the village must get it back in order to return prosperity to the community. Forget the summary. This is a showcase for Muay Thai master Tony Jaa, and as such, it’s a great movie. Jaa directed himself in the followup to this film, which moves the action from modern day to hundreds of years in the past, in an attempt to create a martial arts epic. I prefer this film.
