JOIN THE FIGHT CLUB; bacon on films WARRIOR KING ACTION Cert: 18.

ON my final Capital Radio show last week, I got a bit demob happy, and asked my gentlemen listeners to send in charming euphemisms that they use to describe their private parts.

Alongside such names as Constable Wobbly, Uncle Bob and the Cousins and The Little Gentleman in the Pink Polo Neck, the most common nickname used by men in the South East was "The Warrior King".

This film is not about male genitals. It's about Thai martial artist Kham (Tony Jaa) who has to recover two elephants stolen from his villag

Nothing like that crime ever happened in Mansfield where I grew up, although in 1982 someone did start a fire at the cricket pavilion. But those stolen elephants are just an excuse to make a movie that's nothing more than a load of exciting fighting. Made by the people who did last year's terrific Ong-Bak, it's not nearly as good.

It's a good, clean, elbow-dislocating chop-socky romp. No more, no less. That will either make you rush to see it, or avoid it completely. Me, I loved it. Hit him in the face. Hooray! Now break his leg...Yeah! By the way, Warrior King has something else in common with my euphemism phone-in. I call mine The Elephant.
