Tony Jaa returns in his third leading role continuing his domination as the best on screen martial artist of the last five or so years. Since wowing audiences with his debut lead role in Ong Bak Tony Jaa has been a bright light in the world of martial-arts movies. With former heavyweight like Jackie Chan and Jet Li past their peak and unable to perform to the same levels now their bodies are ageing, Tony Jaa has taken on their mantle performing amazing feats of grace, power and agility.

His new movie title is slightly misleading as it has little to do with the original Ong Bak. The statue from Ong Bak seems to be the only connection which may refer to Buddhist belief in reincarnation???

The film itself is set in the past and concerns a young prince(or important official's son) taken prisoner to a slave market , who ends up training to be a pirate (not the kind at sea). As he grows up he becomes a skilful fighter (as you'd expect) but his past still haunts him, crossing his path decades later.

There's plenty of quality martial-arts, stunt work and action sequences, it's also very different to Tony Jaa's previous efforts with him trying his hand at various kinds of martial-arts not just his traditional Muay Thai. I felt the story was a little confusing and perhaps I didn't take it in on the first watch. But on second viewing I enjoyed this film tremendously.

Okay it's no Ong Bak which let's face it Tony Jaa is going to struggle to equal or surpass that movie, yet I found it a very good martial-arts film. I should also mention that this is only the first part of the story and the conclusion will be told in Ong Bak 3 ( which will be hitting Thailand cinemas in April 2010). So don't be surprised when the story ends abruptly. I can't comment on the DVD itself since I haven't seen it but I would recommend watching the film, whether renting or buying.

Firstly,the good:
Superb cinematography,which is done justice by the Blu-Ray version.
High production values,which are head,and shoulders,above Tony Jaa's previous two films.
A good storyline which is more than one of revenge.
Excelllent direction,by both Tony Jaa,and his replacement.
Sequences,such as the Court dancing,which stick in the mind.
The bad:
The fight sequences,in the main,appear to be artificially speeded up.
I don't know if Tony Jaa was out of his comfort zone fighting with weapons which necessitated fights being staged more slowly,and thus required subsequent artificial speeding up,but the sequences do look unnatural,especially when compared to the sequence featuring the masked figue performing Muay Thai before the court.
This latter sequence has speed,power,and grace that looks entirely natural.

Its not a big deal but just to let you know, this is not related in any way to Ong Bak. The ONLY similarity is that Tony Jaa is the lead role. Oh and a couple of cameos from the other characters. I did enjoy this film but that's just because I love martial arts films. Ong Bak and Warrior King are right up there with my favourites but this is nowhere near as good. Story a bit lame and I think it lacks what Tony Jaa's other 2 main hits have which is the brutality of the combat with hits you can almost feel through the tv. It's just a bit messy. Overall if you like Tony Jaa's stuff then go get it, it's worth adding to the collection but don't expect something to the standard of Ong Bak or Warrior King.

Before watching this film I had read a lot of negative reviews on it. Just goes to show that you really should watch and make up your own mind! It is obvious that Tony Jaa put in heart and soul when filming this wonderful creation. From what is visible on screen, it seems that he has gone to a great deal of trouble to invlove as much talent as possible in this epic effort. The camera work is sublime, martial arts choreography astounding, acting performances well above par and the stunt pieces are jaw dropping! If this is his first effort, with creative input behind the lens, then I personally cannot wait to see what he serves up next.
Unfortunately there is a down side- the story, though it seems to flow well, gets a little messy and confusing towards the end. The saving grace though is the immensely gratifying end fight sequence, which takes our minds off the sudden loss of direction in the film. Although the movie would have benefitted from a better ending, those of us who are less concerned about being critics and more concerned with entertainment, will relish this lovingly made tale of martial arts fantasy escapism.
Do not take my word for it though, watch it yourself and make up your own mind, Mr Jaa deserves the benefit of the doubt at the very least!

A good film - not Tony's best - but a good film none the less. Sadly - unlike the name suggests it has nothing to do with Ong Bak... Nothing! NOTHING AT ALL!!
Unless this is the first of a 3 part Ong Bak the beginning trilogy or something - or perhaps the subtitles were translated wrong, but seriously, it has nothing to do with the original film.
That said - it's more of the same - impressive Thai fighting, and this time a lot of ground work too. This is between a 3 and 4 stars for me - but today I'm feeling generous, so 4 it is.

PS: If you found this review helpful at all please give it the thumbs up as I'm trying to raise my reviewer stats - thanks.
