Rated TBC by the BBFC


A boxed brace of films starring Thailand's martial arts king, Tony Jaa. As a youngster in rural Thailand, Jaa grew up on a steady diet of Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee and Jet Li but today he has become one of their number. At just 30 years of age, Jaa has already starred in a list of martial arts classics. In 'Ong Bak' (2003) the head of a village's sacred statue is stolen and young Ting (Tony Raa) is selected by the villagers to travel to Bangkok and rescue it. Raised by the monks of the temple, Ting was taught the ancient martial art of muay thai but forbidden to use it in combat. When Ting enters the seedy underbelly of Bangkok in search of the sacred relic, however, he's forced to unleash the martial arts beast and dispatch an endless parade of evil goons before his village is destroyed by drought. In 'Warrior King' (2005) the life of young martial arts master Kham (Jaa) is turned upside down when Australian criminals capture his two prize elephants and smuggle them to Sydney. Distraught that the animals, due to be presented to the revered King Of Thailand have been abducted, Kham is prompted to venture into a foreign land for the very first time. Rescuing the animals proves no mean feat. Despite the assistance of Sergeant Mark (Petchtai Wongkamlao), a Thai police officer based in Australia, and Pla (Bongkoj Khongmalai) a Thai girl sold into modern day slavery, Kham faces an incredible challenge.
