Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The unrelentingly brutal Ong Bak 2 was a drag after the screwball charm and breathtaking stunts of Ong Bak, and the third installment continues the trend.
Rotten: Beware bone-crushing action stars bearing messages of peace and enlightenment.
Fresh: I doubt that Ong Bak 3 is going to find a welcoming audience, no matter how much I wish it would.
Ong Bak All of them tell the story of martial arts
All Ong Bak tell a story that continues in the martial arts world. Only one that has studied the art can conceive the true meaning. Those who only look for face value are empty shells with no direction within themselves. Know depth and perception of skill, training and execution. Only then will you realize that these 3 films are the greatest of all time today.
Good not Great
Ever since the very first Ong Bak. He already set a bar really high for himself to when it comes to fight scenes. In my opinion, he was able to do that with The Protector. Now going into Ong Bak 2, I knew it was more of a tale of a legend, so it gave way to more mystical elements. He still showed off his range with the different forms of martial arts displayed. The film also thrived on his prowess with the weapons. Do I believe he succeded, yes. Ong Bak 3 would definitely be the weakest of the three. It's not something I haven't seen before in other movies, but it just wasn't as well executed.
If not for Tony taking a sabatical to meditate which affected production on both films, I think the product may have been better. What I do appreciate is Tony was able to display another Thai martial artist in Dan Chupong, who played the Demon Crow. All in all, it was a good movie. It isn't one that can stand on it's own and make me want to watch over and over. Do yourself a favor and watch Ong Bak 2 then 3 right after to fully enjoy this movie.
Worth it for Tony Jaa fans
First off, if the movie doesn't work don't review it because YOU DIDNT WATCH IT. The movie is a solid B, nothing that stokes the imagination, but not terrible in terms of this genre. I certainly agree with the sentiment that this should be viewed with Ong bak 2 for the full value.
