Default 'Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior' - High-Def Digest Review

Tom Landy has turned in yet another witty review for 'Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior.' He says the action in this movie is Jaa-dropping. This Blu-ray is a mess though. Video is terrible. Audio is only marginally better. Extras are minimal. This is for fans only, and even then, make sure you find a discount bin price.

I picked this up because I never got around to buying the DVD, so I don't regret it, but yeah, can't help but agree that this is one ugly Blu-ray. My memories of the theatrical release are a little dim, but while I remember it looking not that great I don't think it was this fuzzy. Ah well, the movie's still a lot of fun to watch.

If it is bad - when will we likely see a good version and from who?
There is no dragon dynasty release of Ong Bak. It's released by Fox in US and by Fox-Pathé in France.

French release vs. US release: http://comparescreenshots.slicx.com/comparison/68668/. Not sure if the link is working atm/anymore but the French release looks like 1 000 000 x better.
