I have long had a very simple principle when watching films with action choreography by Panna Rittikrai: Watch out for motorcycles. Because whenever motorcycles appear something crazy is about to happen. And by crazy I mean someone may very well die. This is a principle that extends back well beyond his work on Ong Bak
and Tom Yum Goong
into his very earliest efforts and, yes, there are a LOT of motorcycles in the first trailer for Tom Yum Goong 2
The sales promo for the reunion between Ong Bak
director Prachya Pinkaew and star Tony Jaa leaked online some time back in a very grotty, low resolution version but given the quality issues with that video and the fact that sales promos almost always include unfinished footage (as this one did) we didn't mention it on ScreenAnarchy at all. But now the official first trailer has arrived and it's looking good. Yes, there are shots here that clearly show the use of CGI and wire assists for the first time in a Jaa film but there are also some absolutely jaw dropping, all natural stunts included and if the film can live up to the general quality of this trailer I'd say fans will be more than willing to overlook the outside assists and long delays in production. Check it out below.
