More cheese penguin? This film is ladled with it...and it's damn good fun!!
Tony Jaa, the Thai bastard lovechild of Jackie Chan (who makes a humorous cameo) and Bruce Lee, kicks more ass in the follow up to his bone breaking..breakthru movie Ong-Bak (also bloody good).
Now I was watching the un-subtitled version, so mostly Thai, some sporadic Aussie and oddly enough English accented dialoge and apart from the odd lengthy dialogue and exposition scene, I could pretty much follow what was going on, depsite the really bad cutting, but then it's a martial arts action flick, not a David Lynch mind-fuck.
Basically Mr Jaa, has his elephant nicked and he has to go to Sydney to kick ass and get it back.
If you like martial arts movies (proper ones, not the ponce like Crouching Tiger..) you'll heartily enjoy this!
