Sotorn Rungruaeng as Kham's father. Kham's father taught him about the fighting styles of the Jaturangkabart, the royal guardians of the Thai war elephants.

However, during a fake inspection staged by a local member of parliament, his elephants are stolen, and he is wounded by a gunshot.

SYNOPSIS

Kham is the last of a family line of guards who once watched over the King of Thailand's war elephants. He grows up forming close relations to his elephant, Por Yai and his calf, Kohrn. During Songkran festival, the elephants are stolen with help from Mr. Suthep, a local MP and his son who are collaborating with elephant poachers. Kham discovers that they are in the hands of Johnny, a Vietnamese gangster who runs a Thai restaurant named Tom Yum Goong Otob in Sydney, Australia.

 

Kham arrives in Sydney, and is stalked by the police as soon as he leaves the airport. He is eventually caught by Inspector Vincent and driven away in Mark's car. When the car stops outside Tom Yum Goong Otob, Kham sees Johnny leaving. He escapes and finds Johnny talking to Pla, a prostitute. Kham follows a minion as he jumps off a bridge. He takes that gangster out and manages to coerce another to lead him to Johnny's hideout, interrupting a drug deal. Outraged, Johnny summons countless extreme sports enthusiasts, who arrive to fight Kham. Kham defeats them one by one, and finally faces a quad bike rider, whom he takes down as well.

tony ja's breath-taking muay thai moves do not disappoint in this action-packed thriller.

Tony Jaa is so great, his movie is great too, the fighting part is great

 

The fighting part is superb, i especially like the fighting scene at the restaurant where he singlehandly fight from the lower floors to the top floors to find his precious elephant. Some emotions were in there as well to show the love he had for the small(big) elephant.

The fighting in this one is awesome. The story wasn't as good as Ong Bak, but overall a good action movie.

I saw this movie a while back, and Tony Jaa can really do alot of damage. Some time, I would like to see him fighting against Jet Li.

Everyone should just watch this movie for the fight scenes... especially the "Tekken" recreation fight :p

the story is lacking nd acting sucks but the action scenes lives up to its name! Although Jaa used less Muay Thai than in Ong Bak but its still entertaining nonetheless.

the penultimate fight scene where tony takes on 50 guys and breaks their arms and legs is fast becoming one of my favorite alltime fight scenes!

 

the 4 mins nonstop one-take supasses quentin tarantino's kill bill1 scene, house of the blue leaves (forget the name)... or the granddaddy of them all of the one-take non-stop filming... orson welles' touch of evil.... tom yum goong's scene was definitely the most dangerous...tony in the extras on the dvd was noticeably winded ... and they filmed that scene 5x!

 

tony's ancient thai bareknuckle is refreshing to watch vs the standard standup/kickboxing that proliferates the h'wood b-movies as well as the HK standard fare.
