word is Jaa is directing Ong Bak 2...which will supposedly be unrelated to the first. hopefully whatever jaa does next will have a REAL director and a REAL scriptwriter...cuz the direction and screenplays for Ong Bak and especially Tom Yum Goong were horrible....

as long as they keep Panna Rittikrai (main fight choreographer of both films) on board, his next films will at least be sick in the fight department.

That's Ong-Bak 2 to you and TF. Tony Jaa is back...

Be excited. And a bit afraid. Ong-Bak's martial arts superstar Tony Jaa just got harder. "I've spent two years learning more about Thai boxing," Jaa tells TF. "Elephant boxing. It's an ancient art of hurling, pressing, grabbing, and breaking. You won't be disappointed."

Warrior King is another brutal, no-wires cruncher which sees Jaa travelling to Australia to retrieve a kidnapped elephant (really) and, more specifically, do some serious damage. The carnage is amped through the roof (an elephant chase replaces Ong-Bak's tuk-tuk riot), the opponents are mightier (goliath fighters, Brazilian chopsockers) and the blockbusting centrepiece is something else: a four-minute, unedited sequence in which Jaa batters 50 foes through four floors of a restaurant. "It's not like any other action film," assures Jaa. "You'd better see it."

"That's Ong-Bak 2 to you and TF. Tony Jaa is back... "

no, im talking about a completely different film that is tentatively titled Ong Bak 2 which jaa is set to direct.

Warrior King = Tom Yum Goong, which was released in thailand last year. its virtually the exact same film as ong bak. the script is god awful, but the fight scenes are a bit better. jaa needs to work with a real script and a real director, cuz aside from the action scenes, tom yum goong was utterly unbearable to watch.

i got tom yum goong on dvd...the action is better than ong bak IMO, but the story/direction is surprisingly WORSE than ong bak...so its a tradeoff i suppose...personally i think Ong Bak is a better overall movie...but if ur just about the action, then Tom Yum Goong is better IMO. the fight choreography is a lot more advanced and less repetitive than ong bak, but there isnt quite as much full contact..so theres a nother tradeoff.

The fights in Tom Yum Goong were class, shame about the apparent piss poor story (original dialogue is lost on me), but I only watch these movies for the fights anyway.

Choreographed? Jaa went through and did all that shit one time, no ropes, no special effects, just his skill.

^^ They still gotta choreograph the fight scenes, otherwise people would just end up getting hurt. I know I wouldn't want to catch a stray elbow of Tony Jaa's on the jaw, that's for sure. You're right about it being no strings hardcore action though, so in a way it isn't chroeographed, in the traditional hollywood sense anyway.

its mos defintely choreographed. just cuz ong bak had no ropes or special effects doesnt mean they spent any less time choreographing it. in fact its quite the contrary. they took extra time to plan out all of the stunts and movies very carefully to minimize injury. those are pro stuntmen, those guys are trained by Panna Rittikrai (choreographer) to know how to take those hits properly while minimizing the level of injury. ong bak was choreographed in very much the same way that old 80s/early 90s jackie chan and sammo hung films were. those 2 n*ggas put stuntmen in hospital beds every day with the hardcore stunts and action they do...ong bak, to me, really just felt like a throwback to the 80s action.
