Featured reviews for

Chocolate
beyondhollywood.com, by Nix source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/chocolate-2008-movie-review/
«Certainly, her acrobatic performance and the outstanding action scenes in general mark “Chocolate” as a must see for martial arts fans. The film’s shortcomings, whilst an annoyance, are not unexpected, and do not prevent it from delivering an intense, thrilling action experience.»
movieXclusive.com, by Linus Tee source: http://www.moviexclusive.com/review/chocolate/chocolate.htm
«Despite the flaws including some cliché involving transvestite villains (again) that might or might not get on your nerves, "Chocolate" is a thoroughly enjoyable action flick.»
Twitch, by Mack source: http://twitchfilm.net/site/view/fantastic-fest-2008-chocolate/
«Of the three films that Pinkaew is known for Chocolate sincerely has the best story of the three and even a fair amount of heart without being cheesy or sappy. It does a better job of setting up the action and establishing character than either one of those others films could ever hope for.»
LoveHKfilm, JMaruyama source: http://www.lovehkfilm.com/panasia/chocolate.html
«"Chocolate" is certainly a guilty pleasure for those with indiscriminate tastes and who like their Thai action hard, fast and brutal. Yet, just like the schoolyard cat-fight it ends far too quickly and once the fight is over one can only feel a bit shameful for enjoying the spectacle.»
lunapark6, by luna6 source: http://lunapark6.com/chocolate.html
«Yes its easy to pick faults with “Chocolate.” The script at times feels like nothing more than a promising outline, the action sequences feel a bit repetitious, and most of the ancillary characters were simple caricatures of good and evil. Yet, with all those faults, “Chocolate” was still able to amaze. “Chocolate” is able to rise above its many faults and mesmerize with its insanely charismatic main character. »
Bangkok's Independent Newspaper, A hit of 'Chocolate' source: http://nationmultimedia.com/2007/11/15/lifestyle/lifestyle_30056086.php
«"JeeJa's an experienced taekwondo exponent and we've added to her knowledge of fighting skills. She was just right for this project," - Prachya Pinkaew says.»
