US Trailer For Tony Jaa's ONG BAK 3
Tony Jaa's Ong Bak 3 is a train wreck, frankly, but it's now a train wreck with a trailer that casts it in the best possible light. Heck, the new US trailer for the film is so good that it actually made me wonder briefly if I'd gotten things wrong when I first saw the picture (I got over that quickly) and it managed to do that without including Dan Chupong in any significant way. Which is impressive since Chupong has all the best bits in the movie.

For those unfamiliar with the behind the scenes saga of Ong Bak 2 and Ong Bak 3 - a story that began with the star destroying his relationship with Ong Bak director Prachya Pinkaew when he insisted on directing the sequel himself, then melting down and hiding in the jungle for two months, then shaving his head and joining the monkhood nearly five months ago - we break it down for you here.

Ong Bak 2- best Tony Jaa movie!

this movie was alright, it's the conclusion to the trilogy and cover points from ong bak 2 and fills the cliff hanger. But the final fight was so disappointing, even some bits in the movie were disappointing!

Because people expected Tony to fight that masked sword samurai, who slashed Tien in Ong Bak 2 and made him go berserk rage mode.

I was just so disappointed with Crow Ghost vs Tien:/

Train wreck seems a little harsh, Todd. Fundamentally it's not what people were looking for, but if you asked them what they were after I'm sure they'd point you in the direction of the original and hell maybe even tom yum goong. Ong Bak is an action classic but let's face it, up to this point there hasn't been a Tony Jaa film you haven't wanted to FF through to get to the good stuff. For once I'm happy to see a character he portrays mature a little, even if it's in a rather incredibly standard manner. I also appreciate that his first couple of films with Pinkaew seemed to breed a little discontent in him and that he's tried to branch out into different avenues of martial arts for Ong Bak 3. The Deawcing style doesn't lend itself well to any of the high impact action we came to expect but I appreciate the different flavour it gives to Jaa as a martial artist. As it is this probably the only Tony aa movie I can see myself watching again from the start to finish and being content not to skip through right to the meat of the affair. That may well be because there isn't much meat on the bones to begin with but eh I left myself open and enjoyed it for what it is and not what it could have been.

Ong Bak and TYG are to date the only Jaa movies that I have been able to enjoy, I felt that Ong Bak 2 was a full blown wreck, and now it seems he's followed it up with this POS. Such a shame, hopefully he get's back on track soon.
