Ong Bak 3
Posted: March 23, 2011
I had the unfortunate experience of watching the movie Ong Bak 3 this past weekend. Normally I love watching Tony Jaa, but this movie was more painful than a root canal. The martial arts sequences were pretty good, although they don’t really compare to Jaa’s performance in the original Ong Bak.
The problem was that the story line just didn’t work. Perhaps it was all the mystical/spiritual stuff, or perhaps it was just a bad attempt at trying to be “artistic”. In any case, this movie was truly disappointing.
As I said earlier, I really like Tony Jaa, and I loved the original Ong Bak, so I figure he’s entitled to a bad movie every once in a while.
I only hope his next movie is a little better.
