Thanks to our friends over at Twitch we find ourselves blessed with a trailer for the much anticipated Ong Bak 2.
Though this movie has nothing to do with the first one, it promises to have as much bad dialogue and weak story. And we wont care. It will still be made of awesome.
For those of you who were lucky and wise enough to see it, you know that Ong Bak was one of the most visually (in action terms) spectacular martial arts films in history. It introduced us all to Tony Jaa, who is the one true heir to the Jackie Chan throne. In Ong Bak, there were no stunt men, no wires and no visual effects… all the stunts and action you saw were REAL and all done by Jaa himself. The man is a total freak of nature.
The story of Ong Bak was horrible as was all the dialog… but no one who saw it cared. The action was second to none. I thought for sure we’d see a bunch of North American producers pick Jaa up for some bad guy roles in Hollywood films, but that never materialized. Too bad.
Anyway, now comes word of Ong Bak 2. Jaa is back! Our friends over at RopeOfSilicon give us this:
this film has nothing to do with the plot of the first film, which, if you remember, involved Jaa hunting down some men that stole the head of from his town’s Buddha statue. If you haven’t seen it or even heard of it you really should check it out, Jaa is a kick-ass fighter. Twitch tells us, in this one Jaa stars in a period piece as a poor orphan boy raised by a collection of martial arts masters from across Asia and ends up an expert in all, fusing the styles into one comprehensive fighting style.
Sure… why not… sign me up. All I care about is seeing Jaa kick insane amounts of ass! By the way, if you’d like to see a larger version of the poster, you can go here.
