Infamous As a fan of the kung fu films, there's no denying that Tony Jaa has some serious skills and serious athleticism.
That being said, he needs better fight choreographers. His fights aren't really fights...it's a bunch of guys running into his fists and feet.
Riskbreaker The final segment of the movie has some quite good fights. Everything prior to that do feel that it could improve more.
spikestoyiu If you want to watch "real" fights, download some value tudo matches. This is way more fun.
Riskbreaker What Infamous is trying to say, me thinks, is that the fights here do look way too staged, the extras timing their entrance to the frame and all that stuff. That's the problem i had with Chocolate. In these days where Donnie Yen has set the mark so high with SPL and Flashpoint i think it's fair to demand better choreographies in movies. Tony should work with HK people already: Lau Kar Leung or Sammo. Both great choreographers.
Aoi Maybe they're following some obscure ancient Thai 'mook code of honor' that keeps them from rushing him in groups?
YOU DON'T KNOW, MAN!
Billie_Joe_Buttfuck value tudo is what poor parents send their kids to when their kids are getting beaten up by the vale tudo students.
lieutenant halfabeef Yeah, I agree. I like his work, but I'm thinking more and more that he's the successor to Seagal if anyone. I guess we'll have to wait and see if he packs on 200 pounds and whispers all his dialogue in the future.
spikestoyiu Fuck. I didn't get the joke until I reread my comment and noticed the typo.
