Tony Jaa, the fighting superstar “destined” for film’s martial arts pantheon” (New York Daily News) electrifies as Thin, a religious young warrior who swears an oath of peace.  But when the head of Ong-Bak, his village’s sacred statue, is stolen, he heads for Bangkok to recover it from a ruthless crime lord at any cost.  In a film time call “exhilarating” with relentless, fever-pitched action free of stunt doubles and special effects, Jaa performs “moves that would send Jackie Chan to the chiropractor!”

 Thai stuntman Tony Jaa makes his starring debut in this martial arts action film directed by Prachya Pinkaew. Ja plays Ting, a young man living in a village in rural Thailand. Discovered as an infant on the steps of the town's temple and raised by monks who taught him the Thai martial art of muay thai, Ting is sent to Bangkok when the head of the town's statue of the Buddha, to which they pray to bring the annual rains to their drought-stricken region, is stolen. The country boy is plunged into the big city's seething criminal underworld, and forced to use his fighting skills to dispatch a parade of thugs in an underground fight club on his way to finding the criminal mastermind who stole the Buddha head so he can return it before drought and starvation bring his hometown to ruin. ~ Tom Vick, Rovi.
