Tony Jaa films are characterized by fearless stunts, Muay Thai/Muay Boran style moves, and action. Since Ong Bak: The Thai Warrior came out in 2003, we've been fascinated with him. Check out the forthcoming movies to find out why.

A bodyguard is fired from his role of protecting a man's son when his father is killed. That just makes it a little easier for assassins to try and take out the son so he doesn't gain his father's inheritance.

The top agent of Vieng attempts to catch two armed dealers that pose a threat to his country.

In Jaa's first starring role, he is asked to go to the city and find the head of a statue that was stolen from a village.  Jaa proved that he is his own special effect in this film, which served as his breakthrough performance.

We've all seen it before- a young martial artist, in this case a Thai boxer, learns about the deeper meaning behind the arts as he develops more proficient skills.  Jaa also served as a director for this film.

The third installment in the series, Ong Bak 3 once again proved Jaa's amazing skills on the set.  He also served as director for the film.

Kham is forced to go to Australia to bring back his stolen elephant.  A Thai-born Australian detective helps him in his quest as he takes on a gang headed by an evil woman.  Since Jaa actually owns elephants, this film was probably dear to his heart!
