An Appropriately Action-Packed Trailer for This Girl is Bad Ass


Jeeja Yanin kicks all sorts of cinematic behind, so it’s not surprising that she would star in a flick called “This Girl is Bad Ass”, also known in Thailand as “Jukkalan”. The title has been altered slightly to better serve the international market, though, given the large amount of martial arts-related mayhem contained within the embedded trailer, I think this particular moniker is a much more appropriate. After all, Jeeja Yanin is fairly bad ass.

A plot synopsis? Of course you can have one:

Jeeja Yanin Vismitananda (Chocolate and Raging Phoenix) is back in a new action comedy directed by an acclaimed director Petchtai Wongkamlao or Mum Jokmok. The film revolves around Uncle Sawang and his niece Jakkalan (Mum Jokmok and Jeeja) whose lives turn into chaos after Jakkalan is hired to transport some smuggled goods to ruthless gangsters.

The action-packed trailer awaits.

    Love me some Jeeja. I hope she ends up doin a US pic at some point. That’s the real life Chun-Li right there. Then again so is the chick from High Kick Girl.

    I love Jeeja Yanin too, even though Raging Phoenix was a disappointing, it certainly wasn’t because of her. I feel the opposite, about her doing a Hollywood pic because it will end of being a badly edited and diluted version of her Thai action movies. Name me one Asian action star that has made better action movies in Hollywood than in Asia. Hollywood does better in the special effects and technical department, but usually when they attempt to make an Asian style action film it is the cinematic equivalent of a Panda Express. The Mark Dacoscas movie Drive was the best Hong Kong style action film to be made in America and was made independent of the Hollywood studios, which probably explains it..
