Director Prachya Pinkaew and star Tony Jaa reunite for this sequel that finds Kham (Jaa) on the run after being blamed for the murder of elephant-camp owner Boss Suchart. When all evidence points to Kham as the killer, he must clear his name and find his elephant with Boss Suchart's vengeful twin nieces (Jija Yanin Wismitanan and Teerada Kittisiriprasert) in hot pursuit. Fortunately for Kham, Interpol agent Sergeant Mark (Mum Jokmok) is willing to lend a helping hand. But things get complicated when ruthless crime lord LC (RZA) attempts to add Kham to his prized collection of world-class fighters, and send him on a secret mission.~Jason Buchanan

Rated 4 out of 5 stars
The Protector 2 in 3D
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
This movie of course is action packed with lots of fighting in karate and judo moves and watching this in 3D Blu-ray makes it even more adventurous with objects looking like they are flying right at you. If you like karate movies then this is the one for you. Make yourself some popcorn and get ready for an action packed movie.
Liked that there were plenty of fight scenes, nicely done to boot. Was surprised to see the RZA get more screenplay AND a fight scene. If your expecting any kind of plot, forget it.
In India you might believe that an elephant is sacred, and that a person would go through so much to recover one that had been stolen from you. But here in the USA it's just an animal and not many people would risk life and limb. You'll ask yourself "why?", more than once.
Tony Ja delivers another action packed performance
Tony Jaa has made some awesome movies in the past and although I don't feel that The Protector 2 was as good as the first one as far as brutal action goes, I feel that the 3D effects made up for the lack of action in my opinion. I was also impressed with the RZA and his performance, I feel he is finally getting the hang of this acting thing. Over all I feel it's a good movie to sit down with some friends and enjoy. Cheers!
This is a typical Tony Jaa movie except in 3D which was pretty good. Sometimes it got a little blurry when going from seeing the action to reading the subtitles but that could be just me and my eyes. The other times it added depth which I like and why I buy 3D movies. Entertaining movie.
Unlike regular Chinese Kung Fu movies, this one has it's own Thai style martial arts. The film was artsy and beautifully done. The movie lacks emotions and doesn't pull you into the story due to a weak plot. However, the action alone is worth watching and of course, you can't beat 3D. It gives you the feeling that you are there actually witnessing the action.
OK I was totally looking forward to this, I love Tony Jaa and I enjoyed the first Protector. But this is definitely a case to more money being used and bringing you an inferior product. I guess with Tony's new popularity the films he is in are getting bigger budgets, but that is not always a good thing. The movie is filled with cheap made for tv level of cgi effects and green screen shots which kind of ruined it for me. Alot of the scenes where Tony Jaa is doing his own stunts it is clearly a green screen set with things he is running and jumping on or off of so to hide what I would assume is safety equipment I don't know it jsut ruined the feel of the movie for me.
