WARRIOR KING aka THE PROTECTOR sees the return of ONG-BAK's Tony Jaa as Khan, a young fighter who must retrieve his stolen elephant.
The action is even more jaw-dropping than his first movie and WARRIOR KING aka THE PROTECTOR also boasts a return to the kind of mega stunt that every Bond movie used to open with before computer effects took over.
The mantra is once again 'real people doing real things' without wires, camera trickery, computers, stunt doubles, etc. And it's true - one amazing Tony Jaa sequence really is a 4-minute single take!
