Reviews

From the makers of Ong-Bak and Warrior King comes the new no stunt-doubles action sensation. Sin was once a prominent member of the most feared mafia gang in Thailand and mistress to its notorious leader, the ruthless Number-8. Now suffering from leukaemia, the only way to raise money for treatment is for her daughter, Zen, to seek out her old underworld contacts and collect aged debts. Blessed with an incredible ability to mimic the fighting moves of her favourite action heroes, Zen proves an awesome match for those who stand in her way. However, when Number 8 decides that the money belongs to him, Zen is faced with a full-on battle for survival. Starring Asia s new female action superstar JeeJa Yanin (who spent 2 full years in training), Chocolate contains some of the most breathtaking set piece action scenes you will see this year! Bonus Features Featurettes: · Breaking the Mould · Step by Step · A Star is Born · Fighting Talent · The Stars of Chocolate · Real Fighters Others · Deleted Scenes · Outtakes & Highlights · Training Workshop · Power Moves (Easter Eggs) · TV spots · Trailer Gallery

I saw this on a recent trip to Thailand (where the movie was filmed) when I was taken to see the movie by a journo friend who was bigging it up. I expected a pretty poor imitation to Ong-Bak if I'm being honest, but I was pretty BLOWN AWAY! From the Ong-Bak / Warrior King producers, Chocolate is a new all-action, stunt-packed, martial arts fest featuring some truly memorable moments. The story follows a teenage girl who visits several of her mum's ex-mafia partners to collect debts to pay for her now sick mother's hospital bills. Of course, no one wants to pay up, so she takes matters into her own fighting hands. I loved the fact that the lead action star was female for a change. Her skills are just amazing - what else can I say? I also loved the fact that half the movie wasn't devoted to trying to make her a sex symbol for the male audience. Instead, the movie concentrates on making her seem like a real fighter with a real cause - refreshing stuff!

So in conclusion, a more than worthy successor to Ong-Bak, Tony Jaa and Warrior King. If you like these, you will love Chocolate. PS. Look out for the stunts-gone-wrong out-takes over the credits at the end - totally crazy stuff!

Chocolate is one of my favorite martial arts movies from the 2000's. It's classic blend of over the top melodrama and fast, well choreographed action. But with a twist - the main character is an autistic girl. This major difference adds another layer to this movie - actress must be good both dramatically and physically. I personally wasn't really impressed with Tony Jaa because he just felt flat as an actor and had no charisma. As an martial artist he is unmatched but he is not very good actor. But Jeeja Yanin had both acting skills and really good martial art skills. She actually reminded me a bit of young Michelle Yeoh. The action in Chocolate isn't as good as Ong-Bak but it's still light years ahead of Hollywood. The story is very simple and has a lot heart and passion which really helps driving the plot which isn't very good. The last 20 minutes of the movie are very good action set pieces after another. I liked it better than Ong-Bak climax. But that's my personal preference.

The video and audio is top notch. There are no English dub thank God! It's Thai with English subtitles. There are a bunch of featurettes covering films production, behind the scenes footage and interviews with the cast, director and action choreographer. There are also outtakes, deleted scenes, trailers and training footage. It's around about hour and a half long. Not bad for single disc edition. If you are interested in martial arts movies you definitely check this one out. Don't snob it because Jeeja Yanin isn't as good as Tony Jaa or Jackie Chan, give her a chance to impress you. Where do you else will find a girl who can do her own stunts and act well at the same time? Not in Hollywood...

I won't bore you with plot summary as this has been repeatedly covered on other reviews. Suffice to say that Jeeja Yanin is in a league of her own. I wouldn't like to try to compare her to any other martial artist, because she is pure talent in and of herself. I bought this movie after seeing Raging Phoenix, also starring Jeeja Yanin, and so with this movie Chocolate, I wasn't expecting that she could match her performance from Raging Phoenix, but she not only matched it, she surpassed herself! Of course I love both movies, and I am a huge fan of Jeeja Yanin. She is definitely one to watch in upcoming titles such as The Kick, Jakkalan, Chocolate 2, Warrior King 2 (the protector 2 in the USA), and Sin Jin. I wont give away plot synopsis, details and release dates, etc, because I have scarce detail myself, but if anyone is interested just google Jeeja Yanin's upcoming film biography. As for this movie Chocolate, it is sweet, brutal and bloody, a rare Thai brew that is not just refreshingly original but a work of sheer genius that is guaranteed to have all true martial arts fans wanting more. In the words of Jeeja Yanin herself, "This is my first movie, I worked very hard in making it, and I hope it will become one of your favourites". Happy viewing!

Well what can you say , the makers of Ong Bak and Warrior King have simply got better and more brutal with this little gem which should have all lovers of this genre rooting for more, more and more again . The fight scenes are once again done with no stunt doubles so god help the actors and actresses after a whole days shoot . The story goes something like this , woman is lover of feared notorious gang
leader in Thailand . She has child who seems to be autistic but very bright and good at imitating everything she sees . The woman soon develops leukemia and becomes very sick . Her daughter , Zen develops into a very formidable martial artist simply imitating every fighter she sees while growing up . To raise money for her mothers treatment Zen seeks out her mothers old underworld contacts who owe her mother money , but they just do not want to pay up so Zen does everything in her power to get the money at all costs even if it means going up against her mothers old boss Number-8 . Chocolate contains some of the most breathtaking action you will ever see and its young star , Jeeja Yanin spent 2 years in training so this is a must see movie !
