The first English trailer for Ong Bak 3 has just been released, the third movie in the martial arts series starring Tony Jaa. Ong Bak 3: The Final Battle is set for release on January 14th, 2011.
Can't wait! I love Tony Jaa and his action films. Ong Bak 2 wasn't the best as far as the story is concerned. It left off at an odd point, and didn't conclude enough in order to feel worth it. That being said, the action is simply amazing. So sad that he's a monk for the time being and Ong Bak 3 will be the last we see of him for a couple years.
Agreed. I love Tony Jaa's work. He's simply awesome on the screen. One of my favorite martial arts actors. Just amazing watching most of his stuff. It two, that part where they're fighting on the elephant was cool. But I do agree it wasn't as great as the first. Can't wait to see part 3 though. And seriously? I didn't know that about him being a monk and being away for a while.
Yeah, I wrote it from memory, but here's an article I just looked up for anyone who's curious. http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com...
I think 3 will be better because it'll actually conclude the story 2 started with. And yeah he went off to join the monastery. Presumably the reason is that he's trying to get away from his production company (who kidnapped him once when he didn't make the movie they wanted him too) until the end of his 10 year deal. In his country it's not unheard of for men to join the monastery for a period of time, and then leave whenever they want. According to their laws, when they become a monk, the laws essentially can't touch them. So if he's trying to get out of his contract all he has to do is sit there until the time is up, and they can't do a thing about it. Sucks for us though, who can't wait to see more of him.
