It's Thai, it's incredible, find it and watch it as soon as you are physically able. You can view the trailer here: http://www.europacorp.com/Medias/Films/Videos/ongbak/t_ob_qhd.mov

I've seen it about a month ago. A great movie indeed.

Yeah, I've heard good things about it. I believe that the version soon to be released over here will be a 2 disc DVD with a ton of extras - sounds good.

Ong-Bak finally gets US nationwide release in NOV!
Here's a cool review I found:
There is a scene in Ong-Bak where the hero, Ting, kicks a bad guy out of a second-story plate-glass window, then jumps out after him and delivers several pummeling blows to the guy's chest while still in free-fall. At another point, Ting does cartwheels over a wok full of boiling grease and a flouring table without touching anything. And at yet another, he evades a whole gang of enemies by simply jumping up on their shoulders and running out of the room across the tops of their heads. And then there's a scene where Ting fights with his legs on fire. And...

Ong-Bak has the thinnest possible excuse for a plot, characters with all the dimension of something die-cut from the back of a cereal box, and eminently unquotable dialogue. And none of that matters, because the movie is just a clothesline for the most flabbergasting physical stunts attempted on film since Drunken Master II. When Ong-Bak had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival as part of its Midnight Madness program, the audience gave it a standing ovation—something no other film in the 16-year history of the program had ever received. Me? I grinned like an idiot all the way through. You want meaning and social significance, go watch Ikiru.

I loved it, but why when he was fighting in the club and on streets did he look like a karate/tkd guy while when he fought the burmese guy in the cave he looked like a muay thai boxer. Are there different ways of fighting in MT?

Thats one of the best new martial arts movie I have seen in a long time good action and story from start to finish. Some of the best fighting and acrobatic scened could give Jackie Chan and Jet Li a run for there money. The best effect in the movie was when he did his spinning hurricane FIRE kick that was cool.

I personally hated it. The fights were so fake. Jumping double elbows. Come on?

Same week, MA movies, the quality has long gone.

What i have found from reading some articles is that:

The main characters real name is toni jaa. He did stunts originally and was quite good. He knows Muay Thai and I believe it said Wushu.
