If you like Tony Jaa's other movies, you'll LOVE this one too! The cinematography is absolutely stunning. There are so many details in every scene. The fight in the alligator pit is beautiful with the mud and the rain drops... This movie made me realize the beauty in life's simple things. There is also quite a bit of blood during the fight sequences, which is to be expected of course LOL

This is sort of a “prequel” to the 2003 original “ONG-BAK” film set in Thailand. Like that film, this one stars (& was directed by) Thai martial arts expert TONY JAA. In this version (set around the 1400’s), it tells the story of warfare between rival groups wanting to control the area. Tony’s father is killed, & he’s taken in by a bandit group (run by SORAPONG CHATREE as Chernang) & taught various types of martial arts. After many years, he becomes remarkably skilled & works to try to exact REVENGE on those who had harmed his family and friends.
Tony created the martial arts fighting in the film, & what he accomplishes is almost mind-boggingly GREAT work in the way he (& others) jump around, confront each other, fight (on the ground, on buildings, atop an elephant, etc.). It’s often pretty bloody (as fighting certainly was at that time), but the exceptional choreography of action is a pleasure to behold. The very end is strangely vague (as if to leave room for a SEQUEL.

Amazing film, Won't be dissapointed. Fight scenes were put together very well, camera work was good, Everything was pretty good. This seems more of a prequel to the Ong Bak since the second one says Ong Bak 2: The Beginning.
