Product Description

Delivering non-stop thrills and breathtaking action, Raging Phoenix is the latest martial arts sensation from the producers of Ong Bak, Born to Fight and The Warrior King.

Action Cinema's first lady, Jija Janin (Chocolate) plays Neu, a wandering musician who, having been abandoned by her family, knows only shame and rejection. Her life changes when she partners with a group of mysterious strangers, who train her in a devastating new form of combat that combines Muay Thai, Drunken Boxing and explosive techniques derived from hip-hop dance moves. When her training is complete, she leaps into a spectacular adventure to bring down an infamous human trafficking ring that is terrorizing her nation, and very soon a new hero is born.

Combining incredible hi-impact martial arts, free-running, and bone crunching stunts, Raging Phoenix is a heart-pumping, jaw dropping adventure that takes action to new heights of entertainment!

Format:DVD
This second effort from Jeja Yanin takes a new route with a more modern martial arts film. While her character in Chocolate immitates classic martial arts stars in Raging Phoenix she works in a post modern mix of martial arts and hip hop dance. If you like old school martial arts films you may not find this one very interesting. The plot is decent for this kind of film. A gang of human trafficers kidnap women special to a group of men who come together to help fight against the gangs and free them. Deu/Neu played by Jeja Yanin (the box and subtitles do it different not sure which is correct) is almost kidnapped by the gang and is rescued by Sanim played by Patrick Tang who introduces her to the group and agrees to train her in their unique art style. She then joins them in their mission to stop the trafficers.

It's simple and has some comedy to mix in with the action and acrobatics which are impressive with a fun mix of martial arts styles.

If you enjoy modern asian action movies go ahead and pick this up while it's cheap it'll provide some fun on a quiet night in with some popcorn.

If you're obsessed with Bruce Lee movies and don't like anything outside of the 70's then avoid this you'll hate it.

Not one for the purists - might avoid lovers of technically faithful martial arts films. Not one for fans of flowing direction.

At times the plot jumps inexplicably like they couldn't be bothered to think of a linking scene. Ignore these shortcomings, however, and this is an enjoyable film.

The acrobatics in the fight sequences are phenomenally choreographed and executed. They are completely over the top and infeasible with fighters one moment taking a tap on the head and then in others absorbing more punishment than a battle tank before going down but you just end up marvelling at how they were put together. The stunt work was simply incredible.

The plot-line is serviceable and the romance seems more Bollywood than Hollywood.

It's an OK action romp that is redeemed by superb, larger-than-life action sequences and sparring/training sessions.

You'll need suspension of disbelief...but you'll be rewarded with the sounds of kneecaps connecting with faces, temples and other anatomical parts. Do not watch this thinking you'll get realistic martial arts, it's a movie you watch with your brain disconnected.

4.0 out of 5 stars She did it again!! 19 April 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Raging Phoenix is quite a mixed bag. On the plus side, we have stunning action, a sweet and really hard hitting main actress plus a quite advanced and mature music-video look. The direction and camerawork are much more advanced than in the previous thai-productions and create a entertaining, kind of new age teen movie with uncompromising action scenes. The story supports that structure and tells the story of a group of young people fighting against a gang who kidnapps "special" girls. When Jijan should be kidnapped, she gets rescued by the groups leader. Together with the two other members (who all share a kidnapped wife/sister background)she learns a special fighting technique which combines breakedance, drunkenboxing and muay-thai. Together with her friends she fights the gang to rescue the wife of the leader of her group.
And that's the point that brings us to the minus side: While the first half of the movie is a great flick about friendship and martial-arts, nearly everything goes down with the last third and the ending. When Jija and her friends advace into the lair of that mysterious human trade gang, the movie becomes more and more abstract in the ending. With the idea of women getting kidnapped because of their smell and turning their tears into a perfume, combined with a female thai bodybuilder waiting for them as the head of the gang, the screenplay flushes all the great ideas and self awarness of the first half down the toilet. Only the really great and typically hard fighting scenes safe the ending and a wonderfull charming and innocent Jija makes that movie fun to watch at anytimes. A bit more storywork and a bit more polished action direction (the fighting seems a bit soft sometimes) would made a better movie then Chocolate was, certainly.

3.0 out of 5 stars 5* Flim 2* Subs 29 Mar 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Film=5*, Subs=2*, Audio=3*

i also own original thai version of this (import before release) which worked 100% but with this version half the subs are wrong.. there's a couple bits where they missed the subs completely.. basically the film has been changed because subs are incorrect... either get version from thailand or download it & get the subtitles separately, at least they will be right! The audio is slightly out of sync as well.. someone gets hit, then the sound plays.. thats on pc, ps3 or blu ray player.. How can this be a legit blu ray with so much wrong with it???... Honestly it's getting to the stage where 'pirate' copies are actually better quality than the legit versions & you dont have menu's you cant skip on pirates ;)

The film itself is amazing, with awesome action packed fight scenes, a really good story thats original... not a cliché here :) but as a gd part of the film is training Jija you dont see as much of her kickin butt as you'd like.

when film is saying who characters are it missis Sanim's... still comes up saying his name is Sanim but on thailand ver its 'Sanim (Iron Rust)', which it dont say on this ver. Sanim's wife 'Pie' as its spelt in this is actually spelt 'Pai'... Why is amazon red lining 'spelt' according to the dictionary its spelt like that...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as sweet as Chocolate
Ultimately a slightly disappointing combination of the usual acrobatic high-flying bonecrunching Thai martial arts with a faintly silly then utterly ludicrous plot. Read more

I like the movie for its battle scenes, the actress that is cute and cool. But the story is too simple and the style chosen is not my taste. Read more
