Tony Jaa 2 In 1: Ong Bak / Warrior King £3.99

First post, be gentle :D

If you like Martial Arts, you need this! check out tony jaa on youtube and you will see why you should get this. At £3.99 for 2 great DVDs whats not to like?



Ong-Bak (2003): No stunt doubles, no computer images, no strings attached!

When the head of a statue sacred to a village is stolen, a dutiful but endearingly naive young martial artist is charged to go to the big city and finds himself taking on the underworld to retrieve it...

Having drawn incredible comparisons to Bruce Lee and an early Jackie Chan, Thai sensation, Tony Jaa, bursts onto the scene! Amazingly athletic, not to mention charismatic, Tony Jaa refuses to countenance the use of props (yes, that's real glass, barbed wire and metal spikes!), wire enhancement and faked blows. What full contact you see is most definitely what you get!

Added to this is a gleefully choreographed chase on the highways of Bangkok involving a fleet of tuk-tuk vehicles (the three-wheeled taxi iconic to Thailand), knowing location photography (visitors to the capital will recognise Khao San Road and the exterior of top nightclub hangout Suzy's Pub) and, most of all, an affecting story of one man's struggle to uphold village traditions against Western modernisation.

Warrior King (2005): The Ong-Bak team take martial arts on film to a whole new level! Two years in the making, the second most expensive film in Thai history and with several seriously battered and bruised stuntmen into the bargain, Warrior King once again is the perfect showcase for the talents of Tony Jaa.

The life of young martial arts master Kham (Tony Jaa) is turned upside down when an international mafia syndicate, based in Australia, capture his two prize elephants and smuggle them to Sydney. Distraught that the animals, reared as a symbol of his devotion to the King of Thailand and due to be presented to the monarch, Kham is prompted to venture into a foreign land for the very first time.

Rescuing the animals is no mean feat. Despite the assistance of Sergeant Mark (Petchtai Wongkamlao), a Thai police officer based in Australia, and Pla (Bongkoj Khongmalai) a Thai girl sold into modern day slavery, Kham faces an incredible challenge. The ruthless gang is headed by Madame Rose (Xing Jing) whose deadly henchmen include a Vietnamese thief (Johnny Nguyen) and the hulking 7' tall behemoth TK (Nathan Jones)...

If you think you know what to expect from the Ong-Bak triumvirate of director Prachya Pinkaew, star Tony Jaa and stunt co-ordinator Panna Rittikrai then think again! Plot necessarily takes a back-seat to this delirious example of extreme Muay Thai cinema, the highlight of which must include a 4 minute(!) unbroken fight sequence in which Kham battles his way through the four floors of the Tom Yum Goong restaurant.

No cuts, no faked blows, no letup in the action!

the fights are impressive in their long takes and lack of restraint, but Tony Jaa could improve his fluidity.

heck i dont know a move of martial arts, but I think he does seem to hit, pause, hit, pause, which shows his practical rather than theatrical roots in the discipline.

ong bak's better than warior king, although there are some great scraps in warrior king. Did'nt know he went bankrupt, they should sign him up as a bond villains enforcer, he does some incredible moves.
#17
"WK" description about the Fight in the restaurant sticks in my mind and the movie i watched Was an imported version and clearly titled as "Ong Bak 2" the Asian markets often label a movie under a different name to those supplied to the rest of the world. I may be wrong but either way it was great to watch.

EDIT: WK is not OB2 take my turban off to you ANDYWOODY01. Good news for me though another tony jaa movie to watch! Thai rel Dec 08 i believe.
For any martial arts fan these are movies not to be missed.

:lol:


i see you found my comment funny. i think its true though, hes very good at whatever it is he does, but hes no showman. he does his moves and that's it. it's so devoid of emotion or anything to draw you in it's almost clinical. obviously i'm not the only one who thinks this if he has gone bankrupt.

i just dont find it particularly entertaining.

which martial arts movie have you found "emotional"?
As far as i can recall having seen every J Chan, B Lee & J lee film ever made they all lack a decent plot and emotion they're all just about moves.:thinking:
I mean you don't watch boxing or cage fighting for emotion do you.

Deal link fixed, thanks for pointing it out
#21
Love both of these films! Major heat and rep!

Really? That's bad news. He's like my favorite up and coming Martial arts actor. :cry:

From what I've read, Ong Bak 2 will be happening and I for one can't wait...the history behind him going bankrupt etc can be read here: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0785035/news

In addition, there's an awesome promo reel for Ong Bak 2 here: http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/tony-jaa-brings-the-pain-weve-got-the-ong-bak-2-promo-reel/ It looks great, but has no story link to Ong Bak 1 - I think they're just using the name for marketing purposes.

In my opinion, Tony Jaa is amazing and a true expert. The fact he does all his own stunts without wires is something else...just do a search for him on youtube and you'll see what a talent he really is...

I already own this collection, so voted hot.

Voted hot and bought for Thai hubby for Xmas!
