ChocolateDirector: Prachya Pinkaew, Yanin Vismitananda, Hiroshi Abe, Ammara Siripong
A kickboxing hero with a difference arises in this action saga from Thailand. Japanese mobster Masashi (Hiroshi Abe) and his Thai partner and girlfriend, Zin (Ammara Siripong), narrowly escape death at the hands of underworld boss Number 8 (Pongpat Wachirabunjong) and his bodyguard Priscilla (Sirimongkol Iamthuam), but the scuffle has unexpected consequences -- Masashi's superiors order him to return to Japan, and Zin finds she's pregnant with his child. Zin raises their daughter, Zen (Yanin Vismitananda), on her own and discovers she's autistic; one of the few things that helps bring Zen out of her inner world is chocolate, and in time the girl develops a remarkable skill in the martial arts. When Zin is diagnosed with cancer, the family cannot afford the chemotherapy that could save her life until her friend Moom (Taphon Phopwandee) comes up with a plan -- plenty of people still owe Zin money from her days as an outlaw, and with Zen as a candy-fueled enforcer, he might be able to get them to pay up and raise the funds for Zin's medical bills. Chokgohlaet (aka Chocolate) was directed by Prachya Pinkaew, who previously made several pictures starring Thai martial arts master Tony Jaa.

It took a moment for this movie to get going, but once it once it did, it really did! The story was perhaps a little bit lacking, but it is enough to get the jist of what is going on. The girl in this movie is pretty awesome, and despite a mental handicap that she has, she also has great reflexes and eye sight to make up for it, and she learns how to fight on her own accord as she grows up by watching other fighters practice and by watching martial arts movies. She winds up kicking a lot of @$$ in this movie trying to right some wrongs that were done to her mom in the past, who now has cancer. Lots of great martial arts action in this...Muay Thai is awesome! If you're into martial arts, definitely check this one out. Don't pay any attention to the previous reviewer.
I LOVED THIS MOVIE, THE ACTRESS WHO PLAYS THE LEAD CHARACTER ZEN WHO IS AUTISTIC AND YET LEARNS HOW TO FIGHT BY WATCHING A BOXING CLASS NEXT DOOR AND MARTIAL ARTS ON TV. SHE PLAYED AN AUTISTIC SO WELL THAT YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED THAT SHE IS. THIS ACTRESS DID HER RESEARCH WELL AND IT TOOK HER 2 YRS TO TRAIN IN MARTIAL ARTS TO DO THIS MOVIE WELL. I AM IMPRESSED, YOU HAVE GOT TO SEE THIS MOVIE!
the previews were the best part of the movie! way too much overacting. the acting period was just terrible. I have a collection of more than 30 authentic asian films & I've really got to say that I seriously doubt I'll watch this one twice. I'm ashmed to say I even spent money on this! horrible! wish I could get my money back.
