Ong Bak 3 Heads to the U.S. Via Magnet Releasing

3 Comments

Tony Jaa’s “Ong Bak 3″ hasn’t exactly gotten a lot of rave reviews, but that hasn’t stopped Magnet Releasing (the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures) from acquiring the film for domestic release. Given Jaa’s popularity among action fans, that seems like a no-brainer.

“Ong Bak 3″ is scheduled for limited release in theaters sometime in January 2011.

The third and final film in the “Ong Bak” franchise returns star, director, and writer Tony Jaa, this time facing off against a supernatural warrior named Demon Crow (played by fellow Thai martial artist Dan Chupong). Much stuntman-wrecking and bone-crunching action ensues.

    I’ve heard Bad things about this. My friend said he didn’t like it and he LOVES the 1st two. I still want to see it but i have my reservations about it now.

    It was half-assed and half-hearthed. Tony Jaa only made the movie because he was obligated to. He signed into a slave contract with the movie studio and is locked in for some ridiculous amount of time to them. After making this movie he became a monk and joined a monastary. He should have went out with a bang but went out with a wimper instead.

    I’m sure people will watch the movie to finish up the story or watch it for action. However, there isn’t much action, and the plot is pretty lame. They should have left it with Ong Bak 2.
