Twitchfilm has an exclusive baby that’s not yet on Youtube now – a very official promo reel from the directorial debut of Thailand’s supreme action hero Tony Jaa. Jaa’s earned an instant ticket into the martial arts “unbelievably good as fuck” class with his first movie Ong-Bak and strengthened it with a more brawly and brutal sequel (with just as good technical finesse) Tom Yum Goong. This movie has also been called Ong-Bak 2, this being a universally bad move as the movies have nothing to do with each other.
Ong-Bak 2, on the other hand, has nothing to do with these – the movie is about a youngster whose life is saved by a group of martial artists. The little guy makes quite an effort to study and blend all his masters’ skills together and trust me, if you thought Jaa has nothing to do with kung fu or close-quarters melee fight, watch the Twitch trailer and you’ll be so amazed.
