When Tony Jaa came into the scene with the original Ong Bak, it changed martial arts movies. No wire-fu special effects, hard hitting brutal fights, and even a parkour chase sequence before it became the norm in films.
So I have often complained about the sequels to ONG-BAK. Tony Jaa really dropped the ball on those films. How is it that these medieval fantasy epics that takes themselves too seriously be a sequel to modern day parkour kickboxing movie is beyond me?
Anyways the Protector is coming out with a sequel in 3D!
So here hoping that the Protector 2 (Tom Yum Goong 2) doesn't take place in a fantasy world that doesn't make sense.
Could this be the return of Tony Jaa?
