The Protector


The Protector
A young man is from a family which has the responsiblity for looking after the Royal Thai elephants. One day, a group of baddies off his father, kill mamma elephant, and kidnap daddy and baby elephant to Australia. Our hero follows them to retrieve the two Royal Elephants. He knows how to handle himself, and soon there is a trail of broken bones and groaning bodies as he closes in on the baddies. Expect spectacular action sequences and a choppy storyline, as this is the American dubbed, dumbed-down, cut version of the Thai original. The BBC rating below is for the original. The film has been released in different versions in different markets.
