Bodyguard, Born to Fight on DVD with subs

The Bodyguard has been released on Region 2 DVD with English subtitles, according to Twitch. And Born to Fight is due out soon.

Both are films that fans of Ong-Bak will want to check out. The Bodyguard, primarily a starring/directing vehicle for Petchtai Wongkamklao, or Mum Jokmok (or Dirty Balls, if you insist!), features Tony Jaa in a small but high-profile role.

Born to Fight is a gritty actioner directed by Ong-Bak choreographer Panna Rittikrai.

Neither have been available on legal DVD with English subs.

Here's the story on The Bodyguard, not that it really matters:

Chaichol is both devastated and furious when his father, Chot -- the richest man in Thailand -- is assassinated. He fires Wongkom, his late father's bodyguard, for failing to do his job and the situation worsens when Chaichol finds out that he himself is now a taregt for snipers. It doesn't take him long to realize that the only person who can save his life is Wongkom, the devoted bodyguard he recently tossed aside.
