With obvious international marketing pressure to make his next movie, y'know, a little less Thai, director Prachya Pinkaew has followed up his brilliant Ong Bak with an ineptly edited, badly scripted and atrociously dubbed pudding.
Director Prachya Pinkaew, armed with a bigger budget (than Ong Bak) and facing a whole new potential audience, recycles his old plot with strategic variations, and -- big surprise -- the movie doesn't feel nearly as fresh as its predecessor.
Despite another routine mangling at the hands of the Weinstein brothers, there's enough of Jaa's and [director] Pinkaew's dazzling artistry still intact to make this one of the most rewarding action films of the year.
