Tony Jaa returns in Warrior King

Tony Jaa's new movie Warrior King (aka Tom Yum Goong) finally gets a UK release next month and thanks to my chums at The Associates you can see some footage from the film...

"Opening at cinemas nationwide on 28th July, WARRIOR KING is the return to the big screen of Ong-Bak's Tony Jaa. The action is even more jaw-dropping than his first movie and WARRIOR KING also boasts a return to the kind of mega stunt that used to kick off every Bond movie in such rousing fashion in the days before computer effects stopped us all saying "Did you see that" in the pub afterwards. The day of the Hollywood stuntman may be almost over but the Thais are stepping in again to give us a much-needed dose of reality. So the mantra is 'real people doing real things' without wires, camera trickery, computers, stunt doubles, etc. And it's true, one amazing Tony Jaa sequence really is a 4 minute single take!"

I've got the Thai DVD release of the film and it's great fun - the four minute fight scene in a four-storey restaurant really has to be seen to be believed!

Have I got shit broadband or is even the lowres version of this really bad at buffering? I just get jump stills with hicupping music!
