Expert Review The Protector
By: Don Willmott filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 1/5/2007 8:23 PM
I feel about Tony Jaa, the star of The Protector, precisely the way I feel about Tiger Woods: I want to be him. To have achieved such a high level of mastery over one's mind and body must be such a great feeling. Jaa is currently the world's best cinematic martial artist, and his wild Thai-style kicks, tricks, and acrobatics, all achieved without any special effects, will leave you slack-jawed....read the full review

Entertainment Weekly
"Jaa has a reckless, bone-cracking grace that transcends the [film]..." 09/22/2006 p.72

New York Times
"The effect is scrappier than the traditional kung-fu movie moves, with their balletic flurry of the extremeties, but the proletarian righteousness is pure classicism." 09/08/2006 p.E14

A.V. Club
"The last 25 minutes are nonstop action, with Jaa fighting with a triple-staff, a sword, and at one point, a live elephant..." 02/03/2010

Premiere
3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he chaotic fight and stunt sequences are worth it." 02/02/2010

Variety 7 of 10
Thai martial arts star Tony Jaa comes out of his corner with bone-crunching power in "Tom-Yum-Goong," a socko action follow-up to "Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior" that has everything but a decent script and involving lead perf. Boasting the same refreshing avoidance of CGI and wire work as "Warrior," slickly made production (largely by the same team) is more consciously aimed at the international market, with its Australian setting and multilingual dialogue...As in "Ong-Bak," the color comes from the supports, especially Phettkai Wongkamlao as an ethnic local cop; unfortunately, Wongkamlao's English delivery is far from clear at times. Jin is aces as the Fu Manchu-like villainess, though isn't given a fitting fight finale...With an enhanced budget, tech package is considerably smoother than that of "Ong-Bak." - Derek Elley

Reel.com 8 of 10
How refreshing, an action movie with a powerful message: Don't mess with a man's elephants. Granted, it's not necessarily a useful message, but in The Protector, a completely gonzo martial arts extravaganza, it's what passes for wisdom. As Jet Li prepares to leave the martial arts movie realm with Fearless, Tony Jaa, who shot to fame in Ong-Bak: Thai Warrior, seeks to prove that he can fill the action void Li will leave behind. He certainly has the moves, but based on The Protector, he's more the heir apparent to Steven Seagal at his best - cheesy, fun, and lord of that realm known as so-bad-it's-good...Fun, violent, and featuring some great scenes of lumbering elephants, it isn't art, it isn't particularly skillful craft (outside of the fight scenes and RZA's aural contributions), but it's an awfully good time. - Pam Grady
