The Protector 2: Blu-ray Review











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, nerveracking film full of daredevil stunt scenes and amazingly choreographed fighting moves that will pump hot blood through the body of all action fans!

As everyone knows, for the most part sequels aren’t usually the best and don’t come anywhere close to the original but The Protector 2 is the exception. With so much action throughout you will want to tape your eyes wide open so you don’t miss a single minute. I still think that the original was the best because of the really cool Casino scene but this does have an awesome scene of its own as well. There’s a moment where there are a whole bunch of motorcycles flying at Kham on a rooftop. Yeah, let that sink in for a minute and tell me you aren’t intrigued to see that. The film is everything you would expect in a martial arts film. A bit cheesy here and there but that’s what a lover of these kind of films would expect. RZA plays the villain and I personally dig it. I think I like him better as a bad guy then anything else. He’s a lover of martial arts and classic Kung-Fu films and you can totally tell that he’s having a blast being a part of this. I really feel like there isn’t a single thing that Jaa can’t do. When I was growing up Jackie Chan was the guy to watch and for this generation Jaa has become “the guy”. Everything he does looks like magic and can only be described in expletives while on the edge of your seat. This is definitely one sequel that you won’t want to miss, especially if you’re a fan of the previous film. Watch it, enjoy it but please don’t try to reenact the stunts.
