Tom yum goong aka Warrior King

Region 2 Spain

The Ong-Bak team take martial arts on film to a whole new level! Two years in the making, the second most expensive film in Thai history and with several seriously battered and bruised stuntmen into the bargain, Warrior King once again is the perfect showcase for the talents of Tony Jaa.

No cuts, no faked blows, no letup in the action!

Trivia: Elephants are sacred in Thailand, inseparable from the history of the country and the revered position of the deified King. The original title in Thai, Tom Yum Goong, translates as 'spicy shrimp soup' and is the name of the restaurant which provides the cover for Madame Rose's nefariously illegal activities. Watch out also for a 'blink-and-you'll-miss-it" cameo from Ong-Bak's leading lady Pumwaree Yodkamol with an amusing comment on pirate DVDs!
