Ong Bak

Rating: 9/10

Fantastic Thai martial arts movie about a monk's apprentice going to the big city to retrieve his small village's stolen Buddha head. Of course he get involved with gangsters, gamblers and underground fighting. The fights are have a very real feel to them despite the acrobatic choreography and insane jumping skills of Tony Jaa. The main characters are likable and it's really the sidekick George who steals the show when fists aren't flying.
