Ong Bak 2

After waiting for what seems like an eternity a trailer is finally released http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/tony...-2-promo-reel/

To say that this movie looks badass would be an understatement. The Weinstein Company has the American rights to this movie, and I would love for this to get a full theatrical release. Between the original Ong-Bak and the Protector Tony Jaa has a small following in America right now, but if they could market this properly I could see it becoming a success for them and Martial Art movies in general, and potentially put Jaa in the same spotlight as Jet Li or Jackie Chan.

Enjoy, I know I did.

Hopefully the Weinstiens won't butcher this too much, and end up cutting 20 or 30 minutes, but knowing them, they probably will. hopefully it'll be released by the end of 08

I know the movie will kick ass, but that trailer sucked.

Looks decent, but I'm sure it'll have the same problem the first one did: all action, no story. Once your awe has worn off within the first 15 minutes of watching Jaa you're left with another 75 min of mindless plot.

Hey, the first one had a story. Something to do with a stolen Buddha head, I think. Very riveting.

As long as Tony Jaa continues his tradition of playing guy's who overreact to situations, I'm sold.

Lets face it though, us Tony fans won't be disappointed action wise, but it's not exactly a vehicle to get him known in the West is it
