OK! Fight movie time!!
Tony Jaa is a little Thai dude who kicks serious ass. He was in the hit action movies Ong Bak and Tom Yum Goong and the lesser known Ong Bak 2. Well he’s back with a new one coming out soon. Ong Bak 3. Yes you read that right. Almost 2 years after we were left with the cliffhanger ending of Ong Bak 2, 3 picks up right where 2 leaves off. I am very excited and ready to see some guys get their asses beaten off of the side of their faces. Really.
Here’s an early teaser
The story is pretty simple, I guess. I watched Ong Bak 2 in Thai, with no English subs, more than twice. The story is basic enough. Really tho, this is a fight movie. I’m sure the love story between him and the super hot chick is pretty good and full of clever dialog, or the reason he’s going on a buck wild killing frenzy is really compelling. I don’t care about all that. If this one has even half of the fight action that Ong Bak 2 has, I might die of Action Overload.
Do yourself a huge favor and find a copy of Ong Bak 2. Slap yourself for not seeing it sooner.
I would pay to see nothing but 90mins of him beating the crap out dudes all over the world (broken up every 15 mins with some shots of tits and asses). Tony Jaa, his choreographers and his stunt team are really doing some creative things in fight movies.
It’s like the male version of modern dance, except somebody gets fucked up pretty good. I have yet to watch a movie with Tony Jaa and not rewind during the middle of things. He’ll pull off some monster badass move and it needs to be seen again, just to take in how badass it is. REally. There’s a move in Ong Bak 2 that I can’t even describe fully, but I know there’s an elephant and a vampire backflipping chick and a double foot reverse dropkick…through the elephant’s tusks. Look at that trailer and how he stunt men are getting tossed around.
I’m all worked up now.
