About the Movie
When Boss Suchart is murdered, all evidence points to KHAM (Tony Jaa). Forced to run as he fights to clear his name, he is hunted by not only the police, but Boss Suchart’s revengeful twin nieces and LC (RZA), a crime lord with his own agenda. A sequel of the global smash-hit The Protector, this extreme fight movie is an endlessly intense, nerve-racking film full of daredevil stunt scenes and amazingly choreographed fighting moves that will pump hot blood through the body of all action fans!
02 and a half decent fight scenes
I am a martial artist as well as a novice stuntman, Usually i am a devout fan of Tony Jaa ever since Ong Bak came to the US. This movie is good dont get me wrong, i was just hoping for a bit more, the first captivating fight/stunt scene was with Tony and the man playing number 2 Marrese Crump (great job on his part by the way). The scene before that fight with the chasing on motor scooters all over town just seemed a little unorganized. As if they just tried to throw as much action into one scene as possible. Not to mention obvious cuts where Tony has a different hair cut but that beside the point. Also it was noticably obvious that some effects were CGI'd and it sort of took away from the whole experience. I enjoy wire working fils as much as realistic martial arts movies but that line between them is rather thin and dancing back and forth across it just wasnt for me i guess.
Overall acting was average for most martial arts films.
The fights with #2 were good after that initial one but the trademark moves of Tony Jaa xan only be reiterated so much in one film before it gets a little tiresome. The scene where Tony is combating 2-3 Parkour/Tricking gymnasts in the squared off section of the burning complex just seemed like everyone was trying to use the wall....watch and you will get what i am refering to.
The RZA did a better job in this acting and fighting than his latest Man with Iron Fists movie so that was a unexpected and enjoyed.
The final fight scene is usually something of legend in most martial arts films, this one was not short on star power as EVERYONE seemed to join the fray, but having "too many hands in the pot" made it a bit harder to be captivated by what is usaly the choregraphed masterpiece of each movie.
In closing its worth a watch, and i will likely add it to my collection. But I am not a stoked about this one as I am some others i have recently viewed.
If you are a fan of Tony Jaa I think you can go either way on this one hence the dead even rating
Hmm not worth the $$
A lot of the stunts were like "yeah right...!!" The fighting was good but the whole movie didn't win me over and Im a fan of Tony Ja but hopefully they keep getting better and make better movies. Don't waste your money!!! Save it for redbox.
