The Bodyguard

A bodyguard determines to find and protect the missing son of his former employer but is thwarted by a gang of hit men.

Tony Jaa (Panom Yeerum) has a small cameo in this film. He plays a supermarket employee who almost steals the movie. His energy and Thai boxing moves are fantastic.
Our hero "The bodyguard" played by Piphat Apiraktanakorn, an outstanding actor, is trying to continue to protect the family of his slain millionaire employer. The amazing special effects of the hotel shoot out, take us from the banquet room to the parking lot, and is quick, funny and very unbelievable. After the death of the employer the son doesn't believe that the bodyguard is up to the task of protecting him. The film is quite a bit of fun, although they spend a little too much time with a particular butt joke, making it slightly uncomfortable. The action continues all the way through and it is good fun for anyone who is interested in fast action, shoot-em up, Thai boxing comedies. ~Mike

I enjoy watching Thai boxing comedies, but when the action is not too intense. I was wondering about watching the Bodyguard too and may do it, after reding your review, cuz it seems like a nice movie to have fun with.
