Review: The Protector

If you liked the movie Ong Bak then you will really enjoy this movie. The story is from ancient Thai history about the people and their relationships with elephants up to today’s time. I have to say that it wasnt the best plot line, but I wanted to see the action more then anything else. And there were a lot of actions scenes. Elbows flying, kicks, punches and many other forms of attacks that is really amazing! I dont even know what the hospital bill was for the stunt actors in this movie. The funny part is there is this one big bald guy who fights in the movie, and then I remembered he is the actor from Troy that Brad Pitt stabs in the neck and who dies in the beginning. It was an action movie that hit the spot. If you dont enjoy foreign movies then you wont enjoy this movie, but if martial arts is your thing then sit down and watch this movie!!

    This movie has soooooooooo many different names depending on where you are in the world.

    Last year it was released in Bangkok (and Asia) as Tom Yum Goong (shrimp soup, in Thai)

    Just bear in mind watching this – Tony Jaa uses no strings, effects, nothing – what you see is what he does.

    Ong Bak was better in my opinion, mostly because the action stayed in Thailand. But don’t expect good storylines from any Thai movies. Just watch this guy and wonder how he does it.

    And just for interest: Thai’s don’t like this guy – they think he’s ugly.

  7. moocherx: yeah I noticed it had a couple of different names. Really they dont like this guy? Thats kind of crazy.. there isnt anything wrong with him.

    it’s because he looks like a REAL thai (i.e. farmer/labourer class)

    for tv stars, they prefer the looks of the Thai-Chinese.
