The Protector 2 Blu-ray Review

If martial arts action star Tony Jaa made one thing clear in the 2005 film The Protector, it's that he loved elephants and would do anything to, well, protect them.  It seems that he didn't quite get the message across to some folks in the first go round since he returns in the role of Kham for The Protector 2.  If it's top-notch acting and taut plotting you're looking for, look elsewhere my friend.  However, if it's some insane action sequences and an anti-poaching sentiment you're after, then you've come to the right place! Also starring Mum Jokmok, Marrese Crump, Jija Yanin Wismitanan, Ratha Pho-ngam, Kazu Patric Tang, Kalp Hongratanaporn, David Ismalone, and RZA in a can't-miss performance, The Protector 2 is available now on Blu-ray.  Hit the jump for The Protector 2 Blu-ray review. Feature: In the second installment of Jaa's elephant-centered movie series, a civil war in the Southeast

‘Warrior King 2′ DVD Review

Stars: Tony Jaa, RZA, Petchtai Wongkamlao, JeeJa Yanin, Marrese Crump, Yayaying Rhatha Phongam, Solatorn Lungluang | Written by Eakasit Thairatana | Directed by Prachya Pinkaew

I don’t watch as many fighting movies as I’d like so when I got the chance to review Warrior King 2 I was at first happy. I’m a Tony Jaa fan, especially because of Ong-Bak so when I watched this I had that movie in my mind as where the bar would be set. Maybe that was unfair or not, but Warrior King 2 is a movie that has the best of intentions, but struggles to see them through.

When Kham’s (Tony Jaa) elephant is stolen he goes on the hunt for the kidnappers, soon finding himself the number one suspect in the death of the man he believes to be to blame. With not only the police on his trail but also

Warrior King DVD Review

Director: Prachya Pinkaew.

Starring: Tony Jaa, RZA, Petchtai Wongkamlao, Jeeja Yanin, Marrese Crump, Rhatha Phongam.

Running Time: 104 minutes

Certificate: 15

Returning to the role of Kham, Tony Jaa once again finds himself having to save his elephant. The fact that this second Warrior King film relies on the same story, which although ridiculously cute is still ridiculous, certainly means that the film absolutely has to make up for it with exciting action sequences, it does this to a degree, but there’s a reason that Warrior King 2 is mostly hated by fans.

Tony Jaa arrived on the scene with Ong-bak, a film that prided itself on a complete lack of CG, green screen, and false wire work. Jaa’s career blossomed in a time where we began to become jaded by such gimmicks, and so at a time of The Expendables 3 and superhero features it would be great to

In ‘The Protector 2′, Tony Jaa becomes a victim of his own success

The Protector 2

Written by Eakisit Thairaat

Directed by Prachya Pinkaew

Thailand, 2013

Thai martial-arts star Tony Jaa started the current renaissance in South Asian action cinema alongside director Prachya Pinkaew with the 2003 film Ong-Bak, but eleven years on, the warts in their style are starting to show. None of Jaa’s subsequent films has had a comprehensible plot, and Pinkaew’s later attempts to employ computer-generated effects have not matched the down-and-dirty practical stunts in Ong-Bak. Jaa’s latest, The Protector 2,has those same problems, but it also understands the elemental appeal of a balletic fight scene.

The first Protector film (also known by the title of its uncut international version, Tom Yum Goong) had Jaa playing a rural Thai elephant tender, assaulting everyone in Sydney to find one of his kidnapped charges. The best plot summary that one can provide for The Protector 2 is, “the same elephant gets taken again.

RZA vs. Tony Jaa in 'Protector 2'

If I could have it my way, most every movie starring Tony Jaa wouldn't feature fight scenes such as this one featuring Jaa, for the most part, getting his ass kicked by RZA wearing a suit and tie. Yes, RZA. I don't turn on a Jaa film to watch him getting thrown through set walls or to see how well he's able to make it look like he can't take out an opponent as weak as RZA in a matter of seconds. Jaa kicks ass, he doesn't get his ass kicked, least of all by a guy in a business suit. Sorry, not believing it. Oh, and what's the bit with the hat at the beginning of this clip and the guy that stumbles away flailing his armsc yt id="guySfo1Pgw0" width="500" The Protector 2 is On Demand now and will be in theaters on May 2.

Trailer & Poster: Tony Jaa Returns for 'The Protector 2'

The only thing worth mentioning when it comes to Tony Jaa's The Protector was the staircase tracking shot. It's more than three minutes of balls-to-the-wall action and it's all caught in one shot. Check it out at the bottom of this post. I say this as Jaa has reteamed with Protector helmer Prachya Pinkaew (who also helmed Jaa's breakout feature, Ong Bak) for The Protector 2, which co-stars RZA, Mum Jokmok, Marrese Crump, Jija Yanin Wismitanan, Ratha Pho-ngam, Kazu Patric Tang, Kalp Hongratanaporn and David Ismalone and will be released by Magnet on iTunes/On Demand March 27 and in theaters May 2.

The Protector 2 Trailer is Ridiculous in All the Right Ways

  • Cinelinx
Magnet Releasing has debuted the first trailer for Tony Jaa's sequel to The Protector, and it's filled with all the crazy action and intensity you've come to expect from one of the most exciting martial artists on film. While the story seems lacking, let's face it, that's not why you're going to watch this film. Come inside to check out some of the crazy looking fight scenes!

I really like Tony Jaa. I'm a martial artist and being a movie buff, I love to watch some ass-kicking films. Before The Raid, Tony Jaa and his films were the king of crazy fight scenes. Based off of this trailer (released via iTunes) it looks like he wants to remind people of that. I just hope this sequel turns out better than the Ong Bak follow-ups:
