Customer Reviews

Tony Jaa is one of the greatest martial artists you will ever see in a movie following in the footsteps of Lee, Chan and Li.
Celtic Reviewer
I love all kinds of movies and try to enjoy them for what they are and who they are made for, but this, I can't even imagine who would like it.
Kenneth J. Enoch
The film is plagued by horrible CGI and 3D effects, bad editing, bad acting (especially The RZA), bad writing and a lame story.

The opening shows Kham (Tony Jaa) teaching martial arts based on the elephant called Khock hararn or Khodchasam. In the end he uses Jaturongkabaat, so I wasn't sure what the whole point was. Thailand has just broken out in peace to the dismay of arms dealer LC (Rza) who plans on doing something about it....something that involuntarily involves Kham and his brother, the elephant...although don't accuse his dad of having slept with an elephant.

The movie is filled with action and has very little drama filler outside of what is needed for the story. There is an extensive rooftop fight involving motorcycles/scooters as well as Kham being chased by every cycle in Bangkok. There are CG explosions, some more impossible than others. It includes some good grindhouse metal music and light saber noises in one of the fights.

The film looks like it was made for 3D in many scenes. There is some eye candy with fighter number 20 (Rhatha Phongam). The film starts out with subplots, but does come together. It has subtitles, except at the end during the credits when they run outtakes.

In one translation "worry" was spelled "wory". When Raz spoke English they include English subscripts. Sometimes they wrote the profanity, other time they omitted or changed it to "butt." I guess creating subtitles is a complex process like sausage making...you just don't want to know.

Enjoy the action. Try not to think too hard.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. near sex. no nudity.

Well, the editor did a real hack job with the fight scenes, cutting every .5 seconds, basically ruining all that beautiful choreography, to the point where the viewer had no idea what was actually going on. I know that we think that fast cutting is good for action, but it's not. It's just confusing, and takes us out of the moment. This is ESPECIALLY true and unfortunate for good martial arts. Just film it, and cut it simply. Didn't like it, would specifically recommend NOT watching it.

The difference between the first one and the second one is almost embarrassing. What happened?!

First let me start by saying that if you watch this movie you must first keep in mind that so many factors stopped this from being what it could have been. Factors such as contracting issues, being absent for 3 years and the crazy idea of adding 3D effects. Once you take those into account you can stop and look at this as not necessarily a comeback for Jaa but rather a step through the door back into our line of sight. This is more of a "remember me?" tone rather than a "I'm back!" kind of statement.

Now, I wont go into all the plot details of the movie because frankly it could be summed up in two words.....kidnapped elephant. The fights are solid enough; however if you are looking for Tony to preform his usual stunts shown in his previous projects, your not going to get the same treatment. whether it's because of the contracting issues or the break he took for so long being the problem here is anyone's guess. There can be so many things pointed out in this movie that could make you shack your head, from cheap explosions to wire work and eye soar slow motion scenes.

On the flip side there are also a lot of good things as well. All though Tony doesn't really have his groove back in this movie, his presence on screen is still tougher than ever. Jeeja has been said to be underused in the film but personally I believe it was just enough, so as to not take away the camera from Tony. Fight scenes are put together pretty well and the wire work (unfortunately used) is done with good taste for the most part. And by good taste I mean its used in more practical situations. I'll put it this way; you won't see anyone jumping four stories for a single kick and you won't see anyone doing 4 backflips into a one finger hand stand on a single blade of grass.

The story pretty much follows the first movie like a template, so no real originality. There is a lot of weird CGI that will take you out of the movie. And aside from some new characters the action is actually kinda bland.

They should have left it with the original. This was terrible. I still think Tony Jaa is incredibly talented but this movie should NOT have been made.

Tony Jaa is great. Jeejaa Yanin is great. The RZA, sucks. The editing, sucks.

The editing is the worst part of the movie. If you want to watch a fight scene, you won't get it here. Too many cuts, too fast, throughout the whole movie, and especially throughout the fight scenes. They decided to cut so much, within the fight scene that the choreography is basically useless, and one can't even really follow the sequence of events.

Terrible. That seems to be a new thing these days, and it's terrible.

don't watch it.

The first Protector, however, is amazing.
