“Chocolate” Thailand Action Movie

chocolateAs we known Thailand has made horror movies a few years ago. They produce many films such as Shutter, Alone, 4Bia, The Victims, and so many others. Maybe, horror stories become their habits. All of the Thailand horror films get many appreciations from inside and outside Thailand. Now, they try to make an action movie, a different theme of Thailand movie habit.

 

Chocolate is the title. This story tells about an autism little girl Zen (Yanin Wismitanant) that has strong power, and high capability to learn martial art through television, video games, and watch kick boxing trainers near her house. She has a male friend Muum (Taphon Phopwande), a boy that they bring up when he child. When they growing up, they earn much money from Zen talent show, they made show under a bridge from Zen’s talent because she has an amazing talent. She has a nice reflect, she can catch a ball from many sides blinding to thrower.

 

They save their money to cure their mother Zin (Ammara Siripong), because she get a seriously disease a cancer and need a help. However, their money is not enough to pay the medicine and the hospital. When Muum stay in their house, he found Zin’s diary which full of credit with many claim inside it. Muum has a plan to bill them. He picks Zen to accompany him to all names of that Credit Book, and try to bill them one by one.

 

Moreover, the fight will begin. The seriously fight begun, when Zen back again after she get a hit by manufacture boss’ abacus, at last the winner of course Zen. The fight will keep going on until they find her mother’s ex-boss Number 8 (Pongpat Wachirabunjong) and it is became very tragic fight, because the enemies kidnap Muum. Zen’s father Masashi (Hiroshi Abe) comes and tries to help them. He is a Yakuza.

 

Chocolate movie gets many appreciate from Thailand’s citizen. The Director Prachya Pinkaew should be a proud, because his film gets a positive opinion from audiences. This is full action movie with pure action from each actor. They did not use stunt man when they took a picture, even a figure person. Yanin should learn Kung Fu for a few months, so she can give us a good performance in “Chocolate”.

 

I though this film is cool, and maybe it will be a next Jackie Chzen yanin wismitanantan female version. They fight without stunt man, and I watched is for many times. All of the fight is combination between martial art and attractive moves but there is something wrong with the cut scene, it is too slow cut and we can see cut after cut scene. That is OKAY, the story is good, and the picture is nice.  If you are an action movie viewer, you should be like it very much. I give a 8.9 point for all sides from this “Chocolate”.
