Ong Bak 2 hits you

If you're a fan of modern martial arts movies, you probably know the name Tony Jaa. The acrobatic elephant-loving Thai cyclone is back in ONG BAK 2 (which he also directed), once again snapping bones and whacking people with elbows, knees, palms, sticks, pots, bladed instruments and various household/village items.

I'm not sure if the sequel is actually a prequel or if it's only related to the original in name only, but I'm reasonably certain that A) it resulted in many hospitalized stuntmen and B) the story doesn't really matter. As proof, Twitch has kind of a weird ("Single Cut With Sword!") but no less impressive promo reel that you should check out pronto.

Wow!

I liked Ong Bak (but didn't love it...martial choregraphy not that great, and poorly directed), I didn't really like Tom yum goong (awful script, badly directed, etc.). But this one looks REALLY awesome! Why? This promo reel shows already one thing: Tony Jaa knows how to film martial arts scenes, Prachya Pinkaew doesn't. It's a HUGE difference.

ONG BAK 3?

ong bak - a sacred item is stolen from his village and he has to retrieve it . ong bak 2 - they kidnap his elephant and he has to get him back . so i think this is ong bak 3 not 2

Wow, now that's a lot of martial arts styles in one film. Still a little skeptic about the storyline because this doesn't seem to connect with Ong Bak 1. Nonetheless, the stunts look crazily awesome!

This looks awesome. I can not wait to see this movie now. The only problem is that they showed tooo much in the trailer, the action scenes that is.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looks like Tony Jaa found a reasonable budget to work with. This movie looks so much better than most of what he's put out in the past. CANNOT WAIT!!!
