4.0 out of 5 stars Good but not perfect directorial debut for Jaa!, 20 May 2010
This review is from: Ong-Bak: The Beginning [Blu-ray] [2010] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
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!
