Aroview: Heavy-handed follow-up to the decade’s best martial arts movie, co-directed by and starring ONG-BAK’s Tony Jaa as a scorned orphan training to avenge his family in 15th century Thailand.
Lacking the humour and surprise factor of the original smash hit, fans of Jaa’s phenomenal agility and prowess may feel compensated by the overload of action sequences, here presented in a dizzying array of fight techniques and random physical feats. There are no other discernible links to the preceding film though, making this a somewhat meaningless 'sequel' (or prequel, for that matter), if still impressive as another showreel of Jaa’s considerable talents.

3 stars (Good Enough) Not quite as fun or unique as either Ong Bak 1 or The Protector, Ong bak 2 still has a range of impressive fighting sequences, this time taking place in an ancient Thai village setting.~Tom H
