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!

This is a difficult film to give a score for ---the acting in the early part of the film is frankly 'terrible'
I myself while watching was beginning to lose the will to live, and yet, the stunts, and 'martial-art's' held my attention....just.
However when the group catch up to the 'Jaguar' who were responsible for kidnapping many women, the action became constant and frankly 'mesmerising'
So ? the film, if you like 'martial-art's' was worth watching if but once.

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.

innovative martial arts choreography , it's not as good plot wise to Jeeja yanin first outing of 'chocolate' but it equals it in fighting spirit.
it all goes a bit Indiana jones to the latter half as if escaping from a tomb, the story of girls stolen for their pheromones is a weak plot line but I enjoyed the film on its martial arts merit rather than plot and character development
roongtawan jindasing is formidable as the gang leader and it makes for a good cat fight finale

Ultimately a slightly disappointing combination of the usual acrobatic high-flying bonecrunching Thai martial arts with a faintly silly then utterly ludicrous plot. The gorgeous Jija Yanin is kidnapped by some bad guys but rescued by some bloke (Patrick Tang) using crazy martial arts. He introduces her to his mates, who use the same box of tricks, based on being drunk to confuse the enemy: unlike Chinese drunken style, which involves random movements to simulate a drunk, this style actually involves being drunk (not sure what that would do for the co-ordination, but I'm not Thai...). Jija learns the style and becomes top-class at it in the space of about a week (hmmmm....), and the group set out to track down the bad kidnapping guys, whose thing to steal girls to turn their tears into perfume (I did say this got ludicrous, didn't I?) and who had stolen Patrick Tang's wife on the day of their wedding.

Eventually, using Jija as bait, they find their way to the bad guys' underground hideout, which turns out to have enormous chasms reminiscent of Mordor, crossed by rope bridges to allow for some interesting fight scenes. But, damn, if someone threw me headfirst into solid rock, I'd be _hurt_, not able to carry on fighting for another 10 minutes. With that caveat, the fighting throughout is acrobatic, extended, and great to watch. Jija herself is pretty damn good and just about believable as a kickass queen.

But the whole thing is let down by the ridiculous plot (almost as bad as elephants being trafficked to Australia...) and, by the same token, the overextended nature of the fights: I know it's convention, but real fights don't go on for 10 minutes or more, across and between bridges, up and down rock steps, bouncing off rock walls, and so on. It's very well done, and I bet a good many bruises were sustained, but it ain't remotely real. Chocolate was just as silly but rather more fun, I think.

I won't further repeat what is stated in the product description concerning plot, etc. What I will say is that, with her well deserved critical acclaim arising from her world class fighting skills in Chocolate, it's good to see that Jeeja Yanin isn't just a one trick pony. In her debut movie Chocolate, Jeeja Yanin was given limited scope to reveal some of her true acting capabilities, since she was confined to a sparse script in order to convincingly portray the demeanour of a mentally challenged teenager... and she did it very well. In Raging Phoenix the plot is somewhat beefier, if not still a little fantastical (but how many martial arts movies have a 100% flawless plot)? I can't think of one, and Raging Phoenix is no exception. However, unlike Chocolate, this film does seek to further explore Jeeja's vocal and acting skills, (not just her lightning quick fighting skills), with the script putting her through a whole gamut of emotion, pain, rejection and loneliness, which she handles superbly. (Look out for the part where she rescues some girls from the clutches of human traffickers, she can dance as she seriously kicks butt)! Co-starring alongside Patrick Tang of Knockout fame, it would be precise to say that Jeeja Yanin is one of the most gifted and true martial artists ever to hit the screen in Kung Fu cinema history. If you like martial arts with a contemporary spin, treat yourself to this excellent movie. It is sure to become an all time classic.
