In part one, he is the chief protector of the richest man in Thailand when the man is killed. The wealthy man's son goes missing, and takes up with a family in a slum. A hilarious, never-ending parade of bad guys tries to find the boy and kill the bodyguard. Instead of Muay Thai kicks, he dances to mor lam to dispatch the villains.
In Bodyguard 2, which is actually a prequel, Petchtai goes undercover as luk thung singing star for a record label that is a front for weapons dealers. He must stay a step ahead of the bad guys and his jealous wife.
Tony Jaa makes cameo appearances in both, both spoofing his movies Ong-Bak and Tom Yum Goong.
A review of both movies has turned up at Cinema Suicide. Here's an excerpt:
Ultimately, each movie is jammed with more fart jokes and seriously insensitive gags than you’ll know what to do with. Each one features some fluttering gay guy. How do you know he’s gay? Is he seen dating a man? Of course not! He’s the one wearing the eye shadow and lip stick. Each one features bare-ass male nudity and gallons of blood. In these movies, shootouts result in explosive bullet wounds, geysers of blood from mouths and so on. The violence is every bit a part of the gag, as well. Michael Bay only dreams of a gun fight that ends with four cars colliding and exploding in midair, simultaneously, The Bodyguard makes it a reality. You’re also going to be hard pressed to find a movie where a man without pants plummets from a building to his death when a woman flicks the head of his penis. Every second of each movie is operating on a higher level of crazy. Bodyguard 2 is a little more grounded, as I said, but you get a close up of a guy shitting his pants at a urinal. Ever seen that Jet Li Die Hard ripoff, High Risk? That scene where the dead guy’s rigor mortis grasp on Jackie Cheung’s balls results in him tearing his pants off through the closed door? Imagine two movies that feature nothing but that joke.
The Bodyguard and Bodyguard 2 will be available as a double-feature package or separately.
