The plot: A small village is cursed after the head of their Buddha statue is stolen, and young Ting must travel to Bangkok to retrieve it.
Favorite Parts: Thailand! This movie brought back great memories of one of my favorite places in the world. In neither of my trips to Bangkok did I witness any slow-mo fight sequences, but this movie was still truly Thai. Fantastic job of capturing the contrast between old-world Thailand characterized by traditional village life and and new-world Thailand, greed, fight clubs and disdain for the superstitions of the past.
Loved it! Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior makes me want to take five more trips to Thailand.
