Ong Bak 2

Have anyone watched this movie yet?
If you not yet and plan to watch it, pls stop reading - or you'll get more curious to watch it. Heh!

Though I don't know what does "Ong Bak" means, but for sure this Ong Bak 2 (OB2) is not related to the 2003 film Ong Bak (OB): The background setting of OB2 was far before modern days in OB... the story happened in like Parameswara's Malacca Kingdom era. It also do not have explainations of any relationship of the characters in both movies. So, is OB2 a sequel, or actually a prequel of OB??? If its a prequel, why name it OB2... should be "Ong Bak: Episod 1" or "Ong Bak Begins" mah. Haha!!!

Wherever there's Tony Jaa, you can expect Muay Thai fighting scenes from him. Though he might wanted to add new things by using other fighting styles himself (chinese kenpo, japanese kenjutsu, silat etc), it would make it looked like a rojak film. Couldn't he make any new stunts from just Muay Thai itself?

According to Tony Jaa there will be Ong Bak 3 coming up (source: Wikipedia)... God knows what will happen then.

Personally, I still like Ong Bak and Tom Yam Goong better. Ong Bak 2 is a disappointment for me.

Aah.. you're right. This one is not in any way related to the previous one, cuma title je sama coz Tony Jaa dianggap OngBak, dan OngBak ialah Tony Jaa, aik?

I haven't watch it, lol, only the trailer.. Quite ternganga jugak la. Don't know how much more can they exaggerate and stretch from the idea.

[Love that cute Muay Lek in 1st OB]

Correct... klu sebut Tony Jaa mungkin ada lagi yg x kenal, tapi klu sebut Ong Bak, siapa x kenal? Haha!

Ong Bak 3 is coming, lets hope the best of it or else, it would kill Tony Jaa's reputation/career... -_-
