    The Protector [Now with Jet Li vs. Tony Jaa video battle]

    EDIT: just saw the sequence where Jaa is versus the crazy-88 (minus kato masks). HOLY SHIT!

    ---------

    Finally watching this movie. Great fighting by Jaa of Ong-Bak fame as expected, but. His stuntment, aka kick-to-the-head living targets, are anticipating his moves too soon. Like they freeze waiting for the hit, except for the first heel-to-the-head dude. I think he didn't get much of a chance to set himself!

    So far, chase sequences are alright, butt kicking by Jaa...crazy! But stuntguys, they suck. Definitely not a Hong Kong crew.

    Talk about HK...they should make a movie where Jaa rescues his buddha or baby elephant in Hong Kong. And make Jet Li the bad guy (see, he doens't have to wear a pigtail so he should make this movie with Jaa )

    THe fight scenes in that movie are amazing, the story and acting were eh, but thats not really why we are watching em in the first place. I liked ong bak a bit better .But in TYG the final fight where he breaks about 40-50 different arms, legs, and god knows what other kinds of bones is just friggen awesome.

    Jaa is fantastic to watch. his movie plots are usually always the same and the acting and stuntmen are indeed a bit 'inexperienced' but who gives a crap. its still freakin awesome to watch him kick so much ass and pull off those crazy stunts this guys got serious skill..

    to see Jaa and Li go at it would be interesting. throw in a little jackie chan and your eyes would be jumping all over the screen.. but Bruce Lees is still the master - JAG

    quoted for the truth, i don't think anyone will ever top Bruce Lee. Not only was he an amazing martial artist, but he had one of the most vivid and unique on screen personalities. He brought martial arts alive and wasn't just another guy who was really good. Plus not many people realize how small he was, and for such a small guy he could do insane things, plus he was ripped beyond belief.

    Yeah, Bruce lee kicked ass but Martial arts movies got kinda soft over the years until I discoved Ong Bak. Tony Jaa Hiyaaa. Remember all of Jackie Chans old movie Witaaay. And all of Jet Li really old movies. Biyaaa Kiyaaa. I love em all.

    I fixed it.

    Tony Jaa's dat dude. The moment he flies into the screen at the first hideout the ass-whoopins don't stop.

    After going through a few years of wire-fu and CG, it's refreshing to see some actual real life action. That's what made Jackie's movies so cool.

    Muy Thai is the $#!t.

    anyone watch that show Human Weapon that just debuted on the history channel? [or whatever]

    it was all about muai tai and man those that practice it are nuts. kids as young as 15 are competing professionally and 8yr olds are in training! and any one of them could woop my ass.

    next weeks episode should be cool, but im a fan of all martial arts so they'll all be cool.

    the two hosts are douche bags though.. - JAG

    The protector blew my mind, best martial art movie I've seen in a long time. I'm pretty much sick to death of wire-fu and CG-fu.

    Muay Thai is pretty amazing, but Muay Boran is crazier. I think Tony Jaa incorporates a lot more Boran then Thai. I'm not sure though, as I've not studied in either.

    Bruce Lee is still the best.

    Can't really compare the two as they're not the same. MMA is fighting and this is choreography, it's more like dance, think capoeira.

    donny yen definitely has the moves. but i dunno that he could take Jaa in a full on fight. Jaa's hits are just so hard, but Yen is definitely fast. itd be cool to see though. of course, Bruce Lee would kill both of them.. - JAG

    The number of people who think it is fighting though, astounds me. That flying spinning kicking crap impresses a lot of people.

    To me though, there's nothing more beautiful than a beautifully executed choke =)

    Are you saying that Bruce Lee was not a good fighter? i guess it's a pointless argument since he is dead, still though. Even Tony Jaa seems to be able to kick someones ass in real life due to his training in real life. But, i dont know how much more he focuses on showmanship compaired to actual execution in a real fight. i will say this though, MMA heavy weights are boring as hell to watch.

    Are you saying that Fedor, Nog, Kharitonov, Randleman (as inconsistent as he is), Crocop are boring to watch?

    I certainly hope not.

    And Bruce Lee, honestly? I think the guy was completely untested, but that doesn't mean I don't think he was influential, he was very influential. I just think that he wouldn't stand much of a chance against even B-grade professional MMA fighters.

    i do admit those guys are good. i try to watch them, but i can only take so much of two guys throwing wild punches then hugging as they knee each other in the side, thus leading to the ground for a 10 minute slug fest and submission. Being in the fight may be very exciting, but watching it it wears off quickly. I'd just rather watch somthing that has more strategy to it, rather than a fight ending up as a high school wrestling match. I know that submission may be more realistic in a true fight, but come on... To me heavy weights rely more on who can take more crap than the other instead of strategy. It reminds me of this.

    video was a bad example, but all jokes aside...

    I actually really want to see if Wang Chun or any other type of Kung Fu, can stand up to someone who studies tae kwon do, Karate, Muay thai, or that deadly Krav Maga.

    Bruce Lee though, taught that a person should study his own path in fighting trying to avoid tradition and set ways to do things. I've read and heard that he was always challenged even by a random person at one time, and the fight would be over in under at most a minute. He only ever lost one fight and that was when he was 13.

    Edit:: Come to think of it, I'm probably talking more along the lines of a real fight than a ring bout.

    ok im sure this is gonna get messy but i'll deal with it..

    MMA is over-rated. in fact i cant stand that its even called that and that the fighters claim to have skills in so many different [and mixed] marrtial arts.. when the whole fight ends up being two guys caressing and stroking each other on the floor all night long, their arms and legs lovingly intertwined together as they hold each other close.

    as was stated.. its like a high school wrestling match. these guys need to get some balls, or at least REAL skills and PROVE they know a martial art. they dont show any more skill than two random drunks having it out on the sidewalk.

    there are many other competitions that truly test skills. focused competitions like tae kwon do and even tai chi competitions that really test your skills in THAT style or discipline.

    it seems like a cop-out to say "im in MMA but i only ever iuse the same 3 moves and my favorite style is high school wrestling"

    Bruce Lee may have been untested.. but that doesnt change the fact that he DID know wtf he was doing. Jaa and the rest are equally as skilled.. though maybe not entirely combat proven. - JAG
