Ong-BakThis is a tricky film to rate. The plot is pretty inconsequential and drags things out a bit toward the end, but that’s not what you come to a film like Ong-Bak for — it’s here for the action.

When it comes (the pointless plot machinations hold it off for a while), it delivers pretty well indeed, with some impressive work from star Tony Jaa.

I err on the side of generosity with my score.

4 out of 5
