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.Read more ›
The difference between the first one and the second one is almost embarrassing. What happened?!
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.
As a lover of The Protector and Ong Bok, I was highly anticipating the return of Tony Jaa. Instead, I got a shell of what Jaa used to be.
The story is ridiculous, essentially the same as last time. Jaa's elephant is stolen, which pisses him off.
What follows, is non-stop CGI and wire work, a departure from Jaa's realistic and exciting fight work from the original.
The CGI in this is SO bad, that you'll be laughing. The final scene featuring RZA is some of the worst CGI I've ever seen on screen, and I've seen some bad movies.
Stay away from this. It is plain AWFUL.
If you doubt me, there's a video on YouTube called 'The Worst 5 CGI Moments in The Protector 2'. Watch it instead of this movie.
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.

Sometimes a sequel has a thin and silly script and Protector 2 is there. Some good action but just watch Protector I again.Published 7 days ago by Leonard Zucker
