Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior

Awesome flick. The storyline is about this country boy whose village is desecrated by several members of a gang from the big city. They steal the head of the village buddha, ong-bak, and he volunteers to find the head and return it to the village. Along the way he gets mixed up in a fight club and eventually comes to realize that the head of the gang will never return the stolen statue. As a result he must kick several hundred asses along the way.

Great shots of thailand at night. Tons of high powered action, with matrix-style slo-mo effects on certain final blows. no digital help, all stunts are real! great fighting scenes, and plenty of them! unlike other translated kung fu flicks, this one is adapted for modern day, has a great hip hop soundtrack, does not have any slow scenes at all, and is probably one of the best kung fu flicks i have ever seen.

You should definitely go see this movie..... ON WEED!
