All right, I finally got around to watching Ong Bak 3! And you know what? It’s even MORE of a disappointment than the second one was! Uh… yay?
Unlike Ong Bak 2, this movie follows directly after the events of the previous film in the series, where Tony Jaa is some guy who is apparently Jesus or something, and he gets tortured basically to death by the Bad Guys. He somehow survives and gets himself a training montage that allows him to win in the end against another mystical evil bad guy… by reversing the movie and just shooting everyone with lightning instead of fighting them. Fuck this dumb movie.
The fight scenes are few and far between, and even then they’re not all that spectacular. This is kind of a major detriment to a kung fu film, but apparently nobody noticed and/or cared when making this piece of shit. Also there’s that whole awful “rewinding the movie” for no explained reason thing, and the lightning powers… basically this movie is awful and not even worth watching. Go watch the first Ong Bak or Chocolate or something.
