Review
Kham is the last of a family line with strong connections to elephants and, when two of his four legged brothers are abducted and taken to Australia to be turned into posh-nosh, Kham gives chase and darn when the boy's angry he's pretty handy. 'Warrior King' is Tony Jaa's follow on to 'Ong Bak' and, like that film, is a relentless piece of beautifully choreographed, stunningly executed, bone crushing ballet and introduces the novel martial art of muaykodchasarn, elephant bone boxing for you monolingual Brits. Fight scenes include with a wushu artist, a capoeira fighter, a 6' 10" giant and a whip-wielding triad lady-boy amongst others.
