I liked Ong Bak but I really liked The Protector, mostly for the unedited stairwell fight and the duel in the burning temple. I look forward to "Chocolate", I believe this new girl is playing Sue Shihomi to his Sonny Chiba.
I remember Ong Bak being a classic, back in High Shcool. My friends and I would always find ourselves watching it from time to time. The martial arts are stellar and RZA advertised for it, so for sure we had to peep it. Great movie overall.
My mate throught it was great too - thought the final fight was awesome. I'm going to wait for the HK dvd next month.
Yeah, i'd recommend it. Copy i watched was fan subbed but was fine for most part. Quite an interesting bit of meta-textuality (or product placement) in that she learns her 'moves' from watching the two Tony Jaa films on TV.
