Ong-Bak 2


aka: Ong-Bak 2: The Beginning
Thailand 2008, 115 minutes
Dir. Tony Jaa, Panna Rittikrai
In Thai with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Action/Adventure / Martial Arts

Topics: Sequelitis.


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.
