As I understand things, this movie was necessary as an attempt to recover the money lost in the making of Ong Bak 2 (or not earned in the theaters). Well, I can't imagine this one did any better at the box office. I liked the theme of letting go of the past as he heals his literally shattered body and finds the way of peace, which was in my opinion brought to fruition in the dance scene with the girl from his childhood. They're reunited after years apart, she is at his side to help him get better and the music for the scene is very good as they move around on an infinity symbol that's visible on the ground. As for the rest of the show, as usual Tony Jaa does his bone-crunching best in the combat scenes against many, many foes until he has to face Demon Crow. Then Jaa unveils something he created: a combination of martial arts and traditional Thai dance. Although it's pleasing to the eye and it's the culmination of the philosophical statement the movie wants to make, to be perfectly honest I found the last fight scene laughable. After he's run through by a giant spear, he says something that makes time reverse and the way he deals with Demon Crow in the final encounter simply arrives out of nowhere and has absolutely nothing to do with the countless beat-downs he's dished out in all of his other movies.
Okay, so call me ignorant, but I'm still not sure of what the correlation is between the 1st Ong Bak and 2 & 3...maybe an the parts Tony Jaa plays in 2 & 3 is an ancestor of his character in 1 or Ong Bak means a particular thing in general (will have to look into it), but either way...all 3 great movies. I own Ong Bak 1 on DVD, as well as Tony Jaa's movie The Protector, (both great martial arts movies), but I think that I would like to own both of those and Ong Bak 2 & 3 all on Blu-Ray eventually...all Blu-Ray worthy movies for sure! There were a couple of elements in 3 that kinda confused me a little, but just mystical stuff I suppose, and it's a movie anyway...it's to be expected sometimes. Regardless, this movie was pretty boss...and Tony Jaa is sensational! To any martial arts movie fans out there, I totally recommend you check out the Ong Bak movies, as well as The Protector! All are awesome! I look forward to Tony Jaa's next movie!
Do not hesitate to make this awesome movie a part of your collection. Possibly the best of the three.
