The Ong-Bak website is done quite nicely as well. So be sure to check it out.
I might add, that it’s not the story that keeps you watching the movie 😉 Although it is not THAT bad… But the martial arts choreography is just stunning. And they show fight-moves where you can definitely see that there are no strings attached.
I hope that Tony Jaa (the main actor) adds a bit of comedy to his repertoire. In Ong-Bak it’s mostly the side characters who are more or less funny. Thinking back to Bruce, you might have in mind that he was always a bit funny himself. Not only the rest of the crew. (Think of his performance in Meng long guojiang – aka: Die Todeskralle schlägt zurück… ).
Maybe you don’t share my young boys’ enthusiasm for martial arts movies, but I guess you can appreciate the athletism of this new shooting star. I hope that he stays around for longer that Bruce. R.I.P.
Have you seen Ong-Bak or Tony Jaa? Share your wisdom 😉
