Tony Jaa
31 March 2009 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Can't wait until this is on Blu-Ray.

In this great sequel Tony Jaa uses so many weapons, gets in a lot of fights for the cause, is trained as he grows up! (This is very unlike the first, where he mostly used Fists, Elbows, Knees, Head)

If Tony Jaa can be considered 'slow' in this movie I would think it would be in the interest of capturing his motions better on film. Just as Bruce Lee could move so much faster but had to slow down to show us just what he was doing! Also there are times when his is being trained in the movie and it is a test, that is why he his movements are more abrupt.

Some people (who may be bored or easily distracted) might think the plot is weak. This is not so if you pay attention. Others might think that listening to the Thai language it annoying and so on. I disagree, it is a very unique sounding language and I tend to watch it with English Subtitles, although I'm sure you can just change the Audio to English or some other language which suits you better.

This is a highly anticipated sequel to an AMAZING movie. But don't expect the plot to mesh or be in any way similar to the 1st.

SEE ALSO: ONG BAK The Thai Warrior. One of the coolest films, be it the opening sequence or many fight scenes later in the movie...

If this seems strange it's because I was trying not to spoil anything.

P.S. Best movie in a while.
