This is one of the best movies i have seen in my entire life. It has action from start to end, and the plot is quite compelling. The photography and stunts are top notch, and it has some of the best fighting sequences I have ever seen. The one scene on the stairs at the mall is pure cinema genius. One constant scene from bottom to top with NON-STOP action. GENIUS! Tony Jaa should be a household name in this country because of this movie. And although I liked Ong-Bak also, The Protector is much better.
