Ong Bak 2: The Beginning


[Note: This video isn't actually 28 minutes long. Vimeo is being weird about that lately, and it's doubling the length of my videos for some reason.]

I can't believe I forgot to mention the elephants. In one scene, Jaa runs across the backs of a herd of elephants, eventually making them all kneel before him like he's the Lion King or something. And in the big finale, Jaa fights a bunch of dudes directly under a live elephant, dodging between its legs and hurling people into its stomach, knocking them out. If that isn't enough for you, he moves ON TOP OF THE FREAKING ELEPHANT and battles a dude dressed like a crow (kind of weird, but excusable thanks to the epic amounts of action in the movie). Unbelievable.

Another clip from The Protector - epic long shot



UPDATE: As you can tell in the comments, someone doesn't like the fact that I posted Ong Bak 2 clips here. In order to make everybody happy, I've taken them down; after all, you (the reader) are smart enough to track these clips down yourself. "A Real Lawyer" has some valid points as rebuttal in the comments, but I'll err on the side of safety.

Ben,

This guy shouldn't be contacting you. If the videos were pirated, then why not go directly to the source (aka YouTube). And if they were, YouTube.com would not make them embeddable. There is no law in the blogosphere. Now if you get a notice from Blogger.com, then THAT'S different, but you cannot contact an individual blogger.

Nice try, Web Sheriff.

WTF??? Web Sheriff? What a Bullshit Job Title. The web is the wild frontier boy and you ain't no Wyatt Earp.

Good Post as Always Ben
