Ong Bak 2 also has nothing to do with Jaa's 2005 film , which was sometimes incorrectly labelled Ong Bak 2 in the West, as well as The Protector and The Warrior King. Tony Jaa and the owner of Sahamongkol Film later made a joint press conference stating that the production and funding would continue after several concessions were agreed upon between Tony Jaa and Sahamongkol. But luck is on Kham's side when he runs into Sergeant Mark Mum Jokmok , an agent sent to Thailand on a secret mission. Which is the only reason to actually give this film a look. First of all martial arts flicks will always be redundant to some extent since there are only so many ways to pick a fight, but stories do vary as does the quality of action. It's basically a series of excuses for action scenes even if the context is not strong enough to support it. Initially claimed to be a sequel to Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior, Ong Bak 2 was then announced to be a prequel to its predecessor.
Mar 25, 2017 - 102 min - Uploaded by wileyKham is the last in long line of guards who once watched over the King of. Also people keep in mind this is a Thai movie. Copy and pasting have never been so wrong before in a sequel serving as a 'Best of Moments' from Jaa previous films. When you take nearly all those things and throw them out the door and add horrible dialogue, acting and cinematography on top of that, you have a disaster. Jaa's films had yet to tie into each other, although Jaa had claimed they would do so with the release of in 2010, which they did. His sorrow at the loss of the elephants is a big part of his rage and the simplicity of the story left lots of space for action. Unlike the original it doesn't contain anything as memorable leaving you with an action film if seen even with no brain cells is difficult to enjoy the absurdity that occurs.
Jaa's films had yet to tie into each other, although Jaa had claimed they would do so with the release of Ong Bak 3 in 2010, which they did. Meanwhile, the twin nieces of Boss Suchart Jija Yanin Wismitanan and Teerada Kittisiriprasert are out for revenge. The only survivor from this massacre is Tien, who manages to escape with deep vengeance in his heart. He leaps, he nearly flies, he moves with lightning speed, he executes his maneuvers with precision and fury. The premise that attracted me to this genre in the first place was always its simplicity to entertain with all the well timed choreographed fight scenes each film displayed.
He travels to Australia, where he locates the baby elephant in a restaurant owned by the evil Madame Rose, the leader of an international Thai mafia. Actually she spends most of the film getting beaten up by baddies until the finale. Looked like a high school film project gone wrong. The Pha Beek Khrut are a group of expert specialising in combat styles from all over , and Tien is trained to unify these different fighting systems, and grows into the most dangerous man alive. Written by I have watched this movie several times and have come to a number of conclusions. Back in 2003 Tony Jaa or Panom Yeerum in Thailand starred in the bone breaking martial film 'Ong Bak' becoming an international sensation. A little over a year later, visited and renegotiated a deal in which bought back most of the rights to the film, except for , which The Weinstein Company retains.
Meanwhile, the twin nieces of Boss Suchart Jija Yanin Wismitanan and Teerada Kittisiriprasert are out for revenge. As he becomes a young man he goes on a lone mission of vengeance against the vicious slave traders who enslaved him as a youth and the treacherous warlord who killed his father. . Tony was very poor growing up in Thailand idolizing Bruce lee in the movies. Although unlike its predecessor where there was some essence of story if sloppy had a complete narrative.
Mind you in this movie Tony is much more violent and brutal to his enemies. Often times resembling a cartoon there's a fight scene in a subway in which Jaa's opponent gets the power to conduct electricity after dipping his shoes in water. Tony is a master of Muay Thai Kickboxing, which he uses 80% of the movie. As Tien reluctantly fights Chernang, Chernang pins him to the ground, once again calls Tien his son and asks him to take his life in payment for killing his father. While it is unnecessary to see him perform a stunt in first person view Jaa certainly knows how to stage a stunt. I swear I heard something about his withdraw from society and time away from the movie business, but this might be one of those times he should have stayed hidden. I don't know what the film makers were thinking.
But when the fight scenes, choreographed by Jaa himself, kick in, boy howdy. All the fights scenes require the actors to jump around their location like rabbits. These fighters are ordered to capture Kham for a special mission. But who knows, before the Weinsteins got their hands on it, maybe the movie explained that. When his old elephant and the baby Kern are stolen by criminals, Kham finds that the animals were sent to Sidney.
Realizing unsurpassed physical potential in the young boy he trains him into the most dangerous man alive. Lives and loves are lost even as a brash young grad student comes up with a solution: start the mother of all earthquakes to counter the rushing torrent and raise the continental shelf off the coast of the United States. As to comparing Tony Jaa to Jackie Chan or Jet Li, are you insane?! When the head of Ong-Bak, the sacred Buddha of a poor village, is stolen, the population falls into misery. Fight choreography is so so. Kham is forced to run as the police launch a pursuit. However, production still encountered financial problems as it came to a close.
