Variety reviews Ong-Bak 3

Variety's Richard Kuipers caught a recent U.S. screening of Tony Jaa's Ong-Bak 3 and had this to say (cache):

Too much contemplation and not enough demonstration sends Thai-socky Ong-Bak 3 slumping to the canvas. Latest and reportedly final installment lacks the emotional clout that would compensate for the meager footage of martial-arts superman/co-helmer Tony Jaa beating the daylights out of all comers.

The lackluster box-office performance (which wasn't helped by the red-shirt protests at the time) is also mentioned, as is Tony's ordination as a Buddhist monk.


  1. Any news about Ong Bak 3 DVD release mr. Wise Kwai?

  2. damn!

    I'm still waiting for the movie!


    Or I'm gonna threaten and watch it pirated!

  3. I think you'll have to wait until the fall film festivals are announced to hear about an English-friendly DVD release of Ong-Bak 3.


Please, no questions about where to download movies or subtitle files.

Please read the FAQ about Thai films on DVD before asking about where to find a Thai movie on DVD with English subtitles.
