Ong Bak Absolutely rules! posted 07 June 2005 in Off-Topic DiscussionOng Bak Absolutely rules! by SymeonHaecceity, Peralogue

Ong Bak was a movie I *wanted* to like. Maybe it was the overuse of bad 80's style camerawork - where they show the same kick from three angles. Terrible!

Some people in the theater actually *laughed* at the climactic death scene of the hero's friend, so maybe that's what ruined it for me.

I really dug the fight scene in the bar tho, where he beats up three guys, especially the zippy dude with the fro.

My personal vote for kickass martial arts movie of the year is "Kungfu Hustle", a movie I liked even better than Kill Bill. Definitely a bizarre movie, yet sweet and funny at the same time. view post
