You won't believe this action!

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!

This is another epic martial arts movie in the tradition of Ong-Bak, very stylish and unique fight scenes that are very well performed by the female lead, she can really take care of herself, if your big into martial arts and love Tony Jaa then this is a must its just awesome!!

 Chocolate

| | See all HovisBread's reviews (27)

Taiwanese film 'Chocolate' is an offering from (more or less) the same team that bought us the two Tony Jaa features 'Ong Bak' & 'Warrior King'. So what we have as a result is a martial arts movie with incredible stunts and fight sequences with basically no safety equipment in use, meaning health insurance wasn't easy to come by for the movies on-screen stars!

What makes Chocolate stand-out from Prachya Pinkaew's (the director) earlier efforts is that the lead protaganist is played by a young female actress called JeeJa Yanin who spent multiple years in training leading to this, her debut feature film. And I can confirm that all the hard work paid off and then some!

The first two or three action scenes play it relatively safe (for the high standards on offer here) and nicely demonstrate JeeJa Yanin's stuntwork and martial arts skills. By the last quarter though you'll be blown away by the sheer physical talent on offer! Indeed, from an action set-piece perspective Chocolate easily equals all this years big Hollywood spectacles and by the final quarter of this movie you'll be gasping for breath (if you'll excuse the tired clichè!). Just when you think its finally over another sequence presents itself, and one that is even better than the last (the final one in the film is INCREDIBLE, believe me)!

Though the story is probably the weakest aspect of the movie it isn't without functionality, and JeeJa Yanin's lead character is rather quite engaging (along with some of the other characters). Clearly the actress has talent elsewhere other than her physical abilities, and I look forward to seeing what she has to offer in the future.

As for the DVD product itself this single disc release contains clean & clear picture with Taiwanese language Dolby Digital 2.0 & 5.1 surround sound options with good English subtitles. No English dubbed track is on offer for those of you who either can't read or detest being made to (I don't buy into the argument about subtitles distracting from one's concentration on the picture. It carries with it the feeble cry of desperation to detract from the truth that many peope don't like being made to read or can't read altogether). Multiple featurettes on different aspects of making the movie are included, as well as deleted scenes and bloopers & out-takes (amongst a generous amount more I might add). A wonderful animated movie adds to the presentation.

Overall, Chocolate is a wonderful martial arts action film that fans of the genre should enjoy. However, like the previous reviewers have stated this film is likely to remain fairly obscure in the grand scheme of things with its bigger brothers Ong Bak and Warrior King (along with their bigger profile leading man) taking more of the mainstream attention. Its a shame, because as far as I'm concerned Chocolate is a better film overall to both those movies, and one that can be enjoyed on a regular basis.

Four out of five. Highly recommended.

 all real, no special affects, brilliant martial arts ..

The lead actress, after watching this movie you wouldn't think that she didn't know anything about martial arts before this movie. She was a famous gymnastic who after 4months training preparted for this role. There is no special affects in this movie, really different twist by having a female in the lead this time. This is definately one up from ong bak. Great story aswell. Beleive me won't be dissapointed go out and buy it. If you havent seen ong bak and warriror king, i suggest you buy them too.

 great action and story
