Ong Bak fighting video

Ong Bak is a Thai martial arts film. The fighting in it is a lot more rough and violent than most martial arts films. The goody is very good (I think his original motive is to retrieve a sacred statue of the Buddha for his humble village) but his fighting is completely unscrupulous - bashing people on the head with bits of metal and so on. I personally think it's great.

Nicky - obsessive24 - has created a very fast and violent video using Ong Bak fight scenes to Breathe by the Prodigy. The video is very exciting, balletic and brutal. Bang bang smash. You can view or download it here.

ETA - I think the action, particularly because bodies do impact hard in these fight scenes, makes you imagine the weight, no the mass, the mass and the momentum of the bodies. You can only make sense of the fights if you mentally model the heaviness and strength of the body in motion, so it is quite sexy.
