Magnet Releasing has just sent over three intense, totally badass new clips from their VOD release Ong Bak 2, and I feel as if we’d be doing the world a major disservice if we didn’t hand them over to the public immediately. As you might remember, we made quite a bit of noise about this Tony Jaa-led follow up to Ong Bak earlier this year when we saw it at SXSW’s Midnight Series, presented by Fantastic Fest. It features a lot of bloody-good martial arts from Tony Jaa, a legend in the field. Our own Rob Hunter called it “the single most exhilarating, jaw-dropping, and ball-tingling action movie ever made. Period.”
I don’t have a better pull-quote than that. However, I do have these three awesome clips. But I will warn you that some of these fight sequences (namely, the second and third clips below) are from the film’s climactic sequence. Granted, these are about 4 of the 25 minutes of badass fighting that take place in the film’s third act, but they are from late in the film nonetheless. So if you’re interested in remaining pure going into the film, you might not want to watch the clips below. However, if you really dig awesome Muy Thai action that will blow your effing mind, I suggest you hit play below.
Ong Bak 2 is currently available on VOD, XBOX Live and Amazon and in theaters on October 23, 2009.
