Editorial Reviews

Martial arts superstar Tony Jaa reunites with his Ong-Bak director to deliver bone-breaking thrills and amazing gravity-defying action (Daily Star), performed without stunt doubles, wires, or CGI. Packed with incredible fight scenes, mesmerizing muay thai moves, and a jaw-dropping final showdown that pits Jaa against 50 enemies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome February 6, 2007
Format:DVD
I've noticed a disturbing trend in a number of these reviews: People are saying they didn't like this movie because of the lame plot. Do these people have any idea how insane this is? Who cares? People are getting spoiled, I guess, by all these expensive, arty, dramatic and well-acted martial arts movies that have been being released as of late, so now they can't appreciate a fun, old school and ludicrously-plotted stunner like "The Protector". (Or, more likely, they couldn't appreciate this kinda thing in the first place.) I haven't got anything against these fancy martial arts movies, mind you, but "The Protector" is a lot more fun than almost all of them, and letting the tired, thin plot get in the way of the spectacular fighting is just insane.

The plot's like this: Some gangsters steal Tony Jaa's elephants, and he's gotta kill 'em all 'til he gets his damn elephants back. There's some subplots, yeah, but what'd I say about the plot not mattering. None of it matters in the least, or should matter, anyway. That said, I will admit that, in the international version, the story takes perhaps a bit too much screentime, particularly at the beginning. Occasionally it seems like the filmmakers forgot that the plot was to be ignored. Still, you never gotta wait around too long for it to get good, and damn does it get good.

I guess the best thing to say is that if you enjoyed "Ong-Bak" I can't imagine that you wouldn't like "The Protector" as well. Jaa plays pretty much the same character he did in "Ong-Bak", being a naive, good-natured rural guy who happens to be a superhuman killing machine. It's a bit less stunt-intensive, on Jaa's part, anyway, but he still does plenty of amazing stuff, and the fights are even better then before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Entertainment at it's best February 24, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie blew me away. I won't try and say it should be up for best movie or anything, but if you are looking for a great way to kill an hour and a half, look no further. I'm a huge fan of movies in general, of all genres, but kung fu happens to be one of my favorites.

I've always preferred 70's kung fu movies over modern ones for there lack of Hollywood touch. This has that feel of a 70's kung fu movie, with the picture and sound quality of today's movies. No Keanu Reeves dodging bullets and floating through the air, no Chow Yun Fat fighting on tree limbs that should not carry his weight! Just straight realistic fighting. Sure some parts seem over the top, but it fits the movie perfect.

Almost all of this movie is action (I watched the American version, havn't watch the original Thai version (Tom Yum Goong)that I've heard is 30 minutes or so longer. I imagine the extra footage adds a lot to the plot of this flick. But this one feels like there is no more then 10 minutes of non-fighting scenes.

If you liked Ong Bak, or if you are a fan of the greats like Sonny Chiba or Bruce Lee, then you must see this. You will be impressed. I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. I saw an earlier review mentioning rewinding a bunch of scenes, and how true that comment is. I can't tell you how many times I had to watch certain kicks or moves over to try and grasp what I just saw.

Bottom line - if you like action movies and can settle for average acting, plots and storie lines - SEE THIS MOVIE

4.0 out of 5 stars The Protector shows some great skills! March 9, 2007
Format:DVD
This movie is what it should be; an action movie first and foremost. Considering that, the movie is pretty sweet. The action is totally out of control just as you might expect. I do like the realistic style of Tony Jaa when compared to movies like Kung Fu Hustle that are a little too crazy at times but fantastic all around. This movie certainly stretches the imagination and that's why we have them. I can state categorically that if you had issues with "Ong-Bak" because of the storyline then you're going to have exactly the same problems here (and, it has to be said, with just about every modern action movie). But if you were thrilled in any way by Jaa's auspicious career-launcher, then the chances are you're going to find plenty to get excited about in "The Protector."

There were three times during "The Protector" when my jaw hit the floor. The most visually splendiferous is a fight in a burning church that plays almost like a demo mode on a high definition version of Tekken, as Jaa goes up against Eddie Gordo, an armour-free Yoshimitsu and a hulking Craig Marduk ("I'll break your face!"), but all of this is for real and, as ever, effects and wire-work free.

But the real show-stopper, the sequence that every fan of martial arts cinema should see the film for, has Jaa visit a large, three-storey, criminal-run club/restaurant and fight a total of 30 opponents (I counted 'em), smashing them into windows, throwing them through wooden screens, assaulting them with furniture, and even picking them up and hurling them off the balcony into a display two story's below, and it's all done in one, 3 minute 46 second stedicam shot.
