Movie Trailer: Thai Actioner Chocolate

28 Comments

So yesterday when doing a preview of Prachya Pinkaew’s new Thai martial arts actioner “Chocolate” I was lamenting that there wasn’t a trailer anywhere. Ask and ye shall receive! I just stumbled across the trailer over at Imprint, and despite the title of the movie, “Chocolate” looks very much like a bone-breaking combat film in the vein of “Ong Bak” and “Tom Yum Goong”. Except, er, with a girl instead of a skinny Thai guy.

‘Chocolate’ stars newcomer Nicharee “Jeeja” Vismistananda as an autistic girl who learns how to fight both by absorbing her martial arts skills from what she sees on TV and from the Muay thai boxing school next to her home. When she finds a list of debtors in her sick mother’s diary, she decides to go collecting. Her quest leads her to confrontations with criminal gangs and also her father, a member of the Japanese mafia.

Get kickin’ February 2008.

    ZOMG this movie is really good though. and it actually cmaeos oong bak many times as the main char. watches the film and uses some of the same moves. the eng subs i had were not very good but it gets the storyline across. it has amazing fight scenes and is ulltamatly one of the coolest movies ive seen in quite some time.

    ALSO no she does not watch Bruce Lee movies, but ironically she eats quite a few m&m like chocolates.
