Tony Jaa (Ong Bak and Ong Bak 2) is back! For a third time.
He defines Muay Thai badass. Just check out this scene from The Protector. If you haven't already seen it, you are seriously missing out. He rose to fame outside Thailand with The Protector. The original Ong Bak gained a cult following, which led to the creation of its sequel and now, third part of the series.
Here is the official synopsis for the third installment:
The legend of Ong Bak 3 begins after Tien (Tony Jaa) has lost his fighting skills and his beloved stepfather at the Garuda’s Wing cliff from the raid led by Jom Rachan (Saranyu Wonggrajang). Tien is brought back to life with the help from Pim (Primrata Dechudom) as well as Mhen (Petchai Wongkamlao) and the Kana Khone villagers. Deep into the meditation taught by Phra Bua (Nirutti Sirijanya), Tien finally is able to achieve ‘Nathayut’. His talents are put to the test again when his rivals including the Golden-Armored King’s Guard (Supakorn ‘Tok’ Kijusuwan), the mysterious killers in black, and Bhuti Sangkha (Dan Chupong) return for the final massive showdown.
He gives old school Jackie Chan (The Karate Kid) a run for his money. Check out the trailer below!
