As a martial arts fan, The Protector is the kind of movie I love watching. It puts every single baht in making its fight scenes bigger, crazier and more inventive.

The first of the popular Muay Thai movies and the film that gave rise to Tony Jaa's stardom. The impact isn't as big compared to the first time I watched it, but there are still plenty of kick-ass action scenes and Jaa's screen presence is truly one of a kind. A martial arts classic that helped to put Thai action cinema on the map.

The drama is flimsy, the music too melodramatic. Visually, it's a good watch, but the prime attraction are the battles, which don't disappoint at all.

Solid pieces

Pinkaew is back ... with a horror film. The intro feels a little rushed and at times I wondered if this was part of an existing franchise, but once things start to fall into place this became a fun and entertaining little film. The monster designs and cheap CG keep it from reaching a higher score though. Whether it was intentional or not, the cheesiness felt out of place.
