Marina Antunes [Celluloid 02.25.14] Thailand action adventure



I may not have been a big fan of The Protector (I simply couldn't figure out what was going on with the elephant), but the sheer awesomeness of Tony Jaa makes pretty much anything worth seeing. Now Jaa and director Prachya Pinkaew are re-teaming for The Protector 2 and from the looks of it, there are no elephants in this story.

Jaa is dropped back into the cityscape but this time, he's on the run from a murderer and ends up embroiled in an underground fighting rink. Yes, this reeks a little of Man from Tai Chi (review) but instead of Keanu Reeves, The Protector 2 has RZA being a badass. Win.


The Protector 2 will debut on iTunes on March 27 and limited theatrical release is scheduled for May 9, 2014.

This was such a huge disappointment. Tony Jaa has lost his touch.

Man of Tai Chi at least had some gravitas then the shit that is The Protector 2.

But I agree both really disappointing movies.

Also the latest pile of shit from Donnie Yen. Jeez, what is going on.
