Tony Jaa FUCK YEAH!!
First saw him in Ong-Bak which rocked. I liked when the Australian fighter (Big Bear I think his name was) was goading him a lot, calling all Thai people weak and beating up waitresses, then Tony walks into the ring, Bear makes an attack and gets owned hard by a kick right in the face.
But then it just got even better in The Protector, with two of the best fighting sequences ever! First one was when Tony works his way up a building taking out guards floor by floor all in one take, completely unedited. Must be seen to be believed:
Then, at this point in the movie, Tony's pissed off in a big way, and decides to start taking on 50+ gang members at once, breaking limbs all over the show. If it were real, the hospital budget would be bigger than the budget of the movie:
Favourite has to be at 1:18-1:22. You just know that dude's in pain!
Ok so the story to these movies is next to non-existant, and with lines like 'Where's my elephant?!' it won't be winning any script awards anytime soon. But that's not the point. Just leave your brain at the door, and admire the awesomeness that is Tony Jaa at work.[/youtube]
