      Ong Bak 2

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      It suffers from comparisons to its predecessor -- not to mention Tony Jaa's less-than-nimble direction -- but Ong Bak 2 has all the extravagant violence and playful style that fans of the original will expect.

      Carlos T Filme: ONGBAK 2 - O Começo #ongbak Assistido: 21-8-23 Elenco: @tonyjaaofficial @bigxmack Modelo: #artemarcial #artmarcial #ação #action Duração: 1h 38m Ano: 2008 Minha opinião: muitos misturam Ong Bak com o Protetor. Aqui no Brasil lançaram um com o nome do outro e vice-versa. Vamos a um resumo: Ong Bak 1 (2003), O Protetor (2005) o melhor filme de Tony Jaa e para onde lançou ele para o Mundo em minha opinião. Ong Bak 2 (2008), Ong Bak 3 (2010), O Protetor 2 (2012). Ong Bak 1 se passa nos dias de hoje, enquanto Ong Bak 2 se passa em um passado medieval. E quando Tony é uma criança e é colocado para uma luta com animais ele se rebela e o tirano Tien e foge. E é criado por Chermang onde o treina para se tornar o melhor. E assim o filme traz ótimas lutas com vários estilos de luta. Até que chega ao final onde Tien volta até que tudo do passado retorna mas com inimigos maior. E quem será? E assim segue ao final com ótimas lutas e coreografia. Um filme com orçamento baixo a lutas e coreografia é oque salva o filme. Roteiro deixa a desejar e o enredo também. Vale apena assistir? A ação vale apena. Nota: 6,5 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 12/31/23 Full Review Just J Probably the best fight choreography I've ever seen. Amazing. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/21/22 Full Review Liam D A solid if some times confusing sequel with some great fight sequences Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/22/21 Full Review matthew d Visceral martial arts action with a solid revenge story. Tony Jaa and Panna Rittikrai's Thai martial arts action epic Ong Bak 2 (2008) is a pretty entertaining picture with unbelievable Muay Thai fighting from Tony Jaa himself. Panna Rittikrai has a real grounded edge to his style of direction for all the main story parts. Everything looks so muddy and dirty in this forest, yet Nattawut Kittikhun's cinematography uses these wide shots of forestry that look spectacular. Much of the framing of eyes, fists, and fighters look particularly nice. I think the color grading is too green and yellow as Ong Bak 2 looks very dated to the mid 2000s. I think the fights are what everyone will want to see with knees smashing into heads and elbows hitting torsos with astonishing speed. Tony Jaa's Muay Thai martial arts is no joke. His effortless athleticism is incredible as he backflips and spins around opponents with ease. His use of fists, swords, daggers, triple pole staffs, and other weapons is very impressive. His dramatic acting skill is pretty solid, but once he starts doing hand to hand combat, you'll think you're watching Jet Li or Jackie Chan. Tony Jaa always impresses me with his unique capabilities. You believe he can fight dozens of men at once. Tony Jaa's writing is interesting with a classic old world story of revenge and growing up with father issues. I think the story could have been more clearly told, but by the end of Ong Bak 2's 98 minutes, you'll understand what happened with the striking visual storytelling. Tony Jaa's Tien is a sympathetic figure, ripped away from his home, enslaved, then trained in all manner of martial arts. I think I actually like Ong Bak 2 more the second time through, now that the story is less abrasively strange. The first Ong Bak is better though. Primrata Dej-Udom is beautiful as the love interest and professional dancer Pim. Her ornate dance during the finale is really intricate and lovely to see. Mum Jokmok has a funny cameo after being hilarious in the first Ong Bak. His appearance as the crazy old man Mhen is pretty funny. Sarunyu Wongkrachang is excellent and easy to hate as the villainous Lord Rajasena. Sorapong Chatree really impressed me with his dramatic skills as Jaa's mentor Chernang, the king of the outlaws. He's honestly fairly moving by the end. In short, Ong Bak 2 is a killer action movie with some decent dramatic work here too. It could have been faster pace to get to higher stakes fights sooner, but I enjoyed it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review james g I enjoyed the first film. This is the same movie, again, but with an alligator. I'm 2 in, might as well watch the third of the trio: I'm hoping for an alien robot invasion.

      Cary Darling Dallas Morning News Ong Bak 2 is really just an excuse for several jaw-dropping set pieces that show off Jaa's killing skills. Rated: 3/5 Nov 20, 2009 Full Review Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle Lovely to look at by small degrees, but a mud-spattered mess of a movie overall. Rated: 1.5/5 Nov 6, 2009 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com The first thing to know about Ong Bak 2: The Beginning is that there is no story. The second thing to know is that the first thing isn't as much of a bother as it probably should be. Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 6, 2009 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins There's a lot to like for those who enjoy visceral martial arts action; and a lot to dislike for those who value a good story. Rated: 6/10 Nov 29, 2020 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures It was epic action, I will admit, but that doesn't mean that the writers should give up on the rest of the film completely. Rated: 2/5 Jul 21, 2012 Full Review Jason Gorber Filmfest Let me be blunt - Ong Bak 2 is an incoherent mess...[Yet is] awesome, stupid, incoherent fun.
