Bone-crunching action triumphs over story and, uh, character development.

Pretty tough to sit through.

Exactly like an elephant, mostly slow and lumbering -- but with great menacing charges of excitement.

Jaa's ingratiatingly ridiculous Protector delivers a steady stream of cheap B-movie thrills, plus two positive messages for young people: Be nice to animals, and when in doubt, always aim for the tendons.

It's silly, at times laughable, sure, but Jaa has a reckless, bone-cracking grace that transcends the film's triviality. For fight fans, he's worth the price of admission.

When you've got a male lead who can break heads like Tony Jaa, a little bit of story line goes a long way.

As a breathtaking follow-up to 2003's Ong-Bak: Thai Warrior, it's a whole lotta fun.

... include[s] some incredible sequences of precision-engineered ultraviolence ...

The Protector is a bad film with a great star and some truly amazing action sequences. The movie is lackluster mainly because the Weinstein Co. and 'presenter' Quentin Tarantino have taken a Thai film and trimmed it from 109 minutes to about 80.

The star of Ong Bak is back for more revenge in The Protector, a poorly plotted variation of Ong Bak's 'You stole my village idol!' chopsocky chase picture.
