The Bodyguard (2004) Review


Good
I was misled into watching The Bodyguard by advertising suggesting that the star was Tony Jaa, the gloriously talented Thai martial artist whose work in Ong-Bak is unforgettable. Sadly, this film was made before Ong-Bak, and Jaa appears only in a small role during a particularly balletic supermarket smackdown that, come to think of it, was worth the price of the rental anyway.

The rest of this Thai actioner is a frenzied and somewhat befuddled mess that combines amazing amounts of gunfire with wire-work kicking and flying and heavy doses of comedy. That's to be expected given that it stars Petchai Wongkamlao, one of Thailand's leading comics. We're in Jackie Chan territory here, not that there's anything wrong with that.

Ong Bak Review


Very Good
Ong Bak is punk rock. In an age when martial arts pictures primarily consist of arty wire tricks, operatic settings, comic cornballery, and/or urban buddy situations, Ong Bak is a breath of fresh air, as gasped through a bloody, shattered windpipe.

Hong Kong is nowhere to be seen here. Ong Bak is a full-on product of Thailand, starring the brutally limber Tony Jaa, in a magnificent debut.

Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior Review


OK

Thai martial arts star Tony Jaa is being touted as the heir-apparent to Bruce Lee, Jackie Chan and Jet Li -- and in "Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior," he certainly makes a mark for himself in the increasingly popular genre with refined, enthrallingly focused, breathtakingly acrobatic grace.

The first time he's shown on screen -- simply practicing his Muay Thai kung-fu style in precision exercises of extraordinary power and sharp, sudden movements -- its impossible to take your eyes off him.

When he actually begins fighting -- and climbing walls and sliding under cars and literally jumping through barbwire hoops -- "Ong-Bak" seems well on its way to becoming a truly great launching pad for an Asian fighter-actor who could take the world by storm.
