Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior

Posted in Kulturecast by - June 28, 2016

Chris and Sean are joined by film critic Ben Hanig and frequent guest Quinn Fleming as they near the end of June-Jitsu with a look at Tony Jaa’s first major film Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior. The film follows Jaa as Ting who is tasked with retrieving the decapitated head of Ong-Bak, a statue that brings good luck and prosperity to his village. Along the way he finds himself thrust into the world of the Thai criminal underground and the drug trade. It’s a pure martial arts thrill ride and a showcase of the talents of Tony Jaa.
