Ong Bak 3 picks up where Ong Bak 2 had left off. Tien is captured and almost beaten to death before he is saved and brought back to the Kana Khone villagers. There he is taught meditation and how to deal with his Karma, but very soon his arch rival returns challenging Tien for a final duel.Written by

There are several mistakes during the final fight scene between Tien (Tony Jaa) and Bhuti (Dan Chupong):
Bhuti's eye makeup disappears and reappears multiple times during the fight, including after he is thrown into the water that should have washed it off.
Before Bhuti throws a spear at Tien during his fight, his short laugh immediately before includes the demonic undertone he should have lost when his powers were stripped away just before the fight.
The spear clearly plants into Tien's neck to kill him, *and then* Tien raises his hands to grab it in a distant shot, but in the next cut close-up he is holding the spear's tip against his neck with no apparent damage and his hands are bleeding from being cut, supposedly from grabbing and stopping the spear's tip *before* implanting in his throat. (could possibly be another metaphysical 'reversal' similar to what occurs before the final battle when he reverses everything to the moment before Bhuti's eclipse).
Now I understand your intentions in teaching me the art of dancing. Dancing is therapy for the body and mind. I owe you a debt of gratitude for changing my life.
It's your mind that finally opened to change. Change the enemies into dancing partners. There are many things in the world that you have to learn. Greed. Wrath. Infatuation. Desires. Lust. And ignorance. Always be careful. These sins are the causes of suffering. They cause all living creatures to be stuck in the perpetual cycle of birth...

The cursed Lord Rajasena orders his warriors to beat up on and break the bones of Tien (Tony Jaa). When Tien is ready to be decapitated, a messenger from King Ayothaya arrives bringing a pardon and Tien is released and transported almost dead to Kana Khone village. Master Bua heals Tien and teaches meditation to help him to resolve the issues of his Karma. While Tien recovers, the evil Bhuti Sangkha defeats Rajasena's soldiers and beheads the king to take his power and treasure. Bhuti self-proclaims king, initiating a kingdom of cruelties. When Tien returns to Kana Khone, he finds the village destroyed and the villagers abducted. Now Tien has to fight against a powerful enemy to release his friends and stop the kingdom of fear of Bhuti Sangkha.
"Ong Bak 3" is a boring, messy and unnecessary sequel of "Ong Bak 2". The plot is confused, brutal and more dramatic but shallow, disappointing fans of the action of the previous two films. The slow- paced story presents fights too long and excessively violent and it is really time to stop this franchise. My vote is three.
Title (Brazil): "Ong Bak 3"
