Yeah first impression was a good one after watching Ong Bak. I was anxious to see what else he'd star in and tom yum goong (the protector) was another really good movie.

Apparently he is not a martial artist but a dancer.....



I love Ong Bak has some really stylish martial arts and tony Jaa really knows how to put on a show especially without the use of wires computer effects or stunt doubles.

Tom Yun Goon had its moments but I fund it overall just less interesting and entertaining that Ong Bak.

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 love the replay's just to highlight how sick he is



I love Ong Bak, I think Tony Jaa is great. Ive yet to watch Warrior King despite the fact i have it on DVD, just havent gotten around to it yet.

I liked Ong Bak as well. Unfortunately, it didn't have as much action as I was lead to believe from the trailers.



Tony Jaa is a legend!!

Just seen it, it's awesome. Far better and more restrained than Warrior King. Not quite as jaw dropping as some of Ong Bak but in turn is a bit more sensible.

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.

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.
