Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Protector 2 is the (disappointing) sequel to the 2006 martial arts action movie The Protector, also starring Thai martial artist Tony Jaa and some elephants. The new movie's violence is slightly less brutal than the first one, but it's still full of wall-to-wall martial arts fighting, with punching and kicking and bodies slammed about. Characters die, and the bad guys make an elephant into a bomb by inserting explosives into its tusks. Women in sexy outfits are shown, and there's some brief but strong sex talk. Language is strong, with several uses of "f--k" and "s--t," as well as other words, both spoken in English and printed in the subtitles.

Some characters are killed; one bad guy has the ability to kill with his fists. The main character gets an electrical device attached to his back that zaps him and causes him pain. An elephant is guided along with use of an electric prod. The bad guys use the elephant as a bomb, planting explosives inside its tusks. Cars and motorcycles crash and explode. A stuntman's head is run over by a car, but his helmet protects him. Mention of a woman being raped. Some brief TV news footage shows and describes a dead elephant.


Language, spoken in English as well as printed in the English subtitles, is fairly strong and includes several uses of "f--k," "s--t," and "ass," plus one or two uses of "p---y," "a--hole," "bitch," "hell," "damn," "prick," and "jerk."

Social Behavior

It's hard to determine just what this depressing mess is really about, but the main message could be: Keep a close eye on your elephant.
