The head of a sacred Buddha statue gets stolen from a rural village in Thailand, and it is up to local country boy/martial arts practitioner Ting (Tony Jaa) to return it by any means necessary. This quest leads him to the big corrupt city, and, of course, to a series of martial arts fights where he must reluctantly bash his opponents in order to eventually, maybe, have a chance of recovering the holy artifact from the evil criminals who took it. Ong-Bak good for what it is; a stunt/martial arts choreography showcase of Tony Jaa in the guise of a feature film.
