    Ong Bok: Thai Warrior NOW WITH VIDEO!!

    Holy Shit, I watched this flick last night - insane action! I swear that main character actually hits and kick people for real, and real hard! It's like a Jackie Chan film on cocaine - with multiple viewings of the action - utterly brutal!

    There was a collective "OOOOOWWWWWWW, AHHHHH, OWWWWW" yelled during this scene... THE VIDEO IS UP!!!!!!

    (4.4 Mb - worth the wait!, 3ivx D4 4.5.1 Codec required- it's free)

    Check out Ong Bok, it's a great Sundy popcorn flick, with the most insane action I've seen in a long time.

    Watch out, knee to the chest!

    I'm planning on purchasing this one as soon as a decent HK DVD is available. To my knowledge, at this time there's only a Thai release out which doesn't have English subs.

    I bought this over in China...I loved it! My copy has no english dubs but I had my girl tell me what they were saying.
    This movie fuckin' kicks ass. From what I read, there is a english subtitled copy floating around...some company put it out.
    Great move, I higly recommend it.

    I just finished watching it, and its easily my favorite martial arts movie ever. Some of the stunts and fight scenes were just unreal. I cant imagine the pain those people must have gone through pulling off that stuff!

    From what I hear the HK DVD doesn't include english subs, unfortunately. Some people over the net have taken the time to write out the subs, I guess it's for the ripped versions or something.

    I guess we have to settle for the VCD.... or learn the language.

    I'll be getting the R1 release. I enjoyed the movie in theaters, didnt blow me away or anything, but Jaa is a talented guy. He doesnt do a whole lot of acting and obviously the movie has little to no plot, but its good, clean fun.

    So this another one of those hack jobs with a completely new soundtrack? They won't have the original Thai score on it? That's pretty disappointing if that's true. Fortunately I already have this movie so it's not a huge deal, but my friend really wants it and I don't know if he'll be happy with a hip hop score. Can't they just leave movies alone and release them the way they were meant to be released??
