In every decade, world cinema has produced a new breed of martial arts action hero.

In the 1970s, Hong Kong gave the world Bruce Lee, the kung fu hero who still casts a long shadow over the industry.

In the 1980s, Jackie Chan's blend of physical comedy and amazing stuntwork made him an international star.

In the 1990s, Jet Li seemingly defied gravity in a string of films that revolutionized martial arts movie-making.

Now, the first decade of the new century has already spawned a unique superstar.

He hails from Thailand, and his name is Tony Jaa...

One dark night, a former native of a rural Thai village, has his men steal the head of the town's ONG BAK (Buddha statue) to win favor with ruthless crime boss Khom Tuan. The locals regard the theft as a catastrophe, and seek a champion to retrieve their lost treasure. They find their man in Ting (Tony Jaa), an orphaned youngster raised at the local temple, and schooled by Pra Kru, a kindly monk, in an ancient system of Muay Thai: 'Nine Body Weapons'. Ting travels to the mean streets of Bangkok, where he's forced to compete in illegal street fights, taking on both local and foreign opponents to win the head of ONG BAK from the ruthless crime boss.
