“Ong Bak 2: The Beginning”
With its promise of brilliantly choreographed fights and breakneck action, Thailand’s Ong Bak 2: The Beginning sounds like my kind of action flick. Muay Thai fighter Tony Jaa stars once again in this prequel to the 2003 original—though in a different role. Jaa plays a young man who escapes slavery and trains in various styles of Asian martial arts, while seeking vengeance on his former captors. Sweet.
Screening: Mon., Oct. 19, 8:45 P.M.; Sun., Oct. 18, 9:30 P.M.
