Editorial Reviews

Witness jaw-dropping fight sequences from CHOCOLATE'S kick-ass Jeeja Yanin, who also stars in the sequel to the martial arts hit, THE PROTECTOR. In This Girl is Badass, Jeeja takes her skills to the next level as a bike messenger who is hired by competing mob
bosses to smuggle goods. Caught in the middle and given an ultimatum, the
only way out is a confrontation erupting into a battle of bullets, face
kicks and blows.

Format: DVD
The title, "This Girl is Badass" is the English language release of Jeeja Yanin's third movie, called "Jakkalen", "The Bicycle Messenger" The film, written and Directed by Thai TV comedian, Mum Jok Mok, (the co-star of Tony Jaa's "Ong Bak" and "Tom Yum Goong") is a kind of patched together version of Mum's TV shows, featuring his cast of Comics with TV type gags. For many, who don't speak Thai, the jokes make no sense, even with the subtitles, (whose translations are BAD) and won't like the humor. Mainly, this is a story about a young orphan, Jakkalen, a super-mega Tomboy, (still cute) raised by her Uncle Wang, (a former mobster himself, now selling DVD's in his video store stall in the market) and she is a Bike Messenger, who happens to be delivering "Stuff", (red powder in plastic bags, presumed to be drugs). Jakkalen, is playing a dangerous game, trying to rip off the mob, while playing rival gangs against each other. Because she is Jeeja Yanin, of course the girl can fight like crazy, and does. Also, a sub theme is a really ugly guy has fallen for her, and is constantly, painfully, stupidly, scheming to win her over. Jakkalen, in the meantime, having her first crush, falls for a musician who is not all he seems to be, which eventually she finds out the hard way. The film has gags featuring absurd costumes and get ups worn by some cast members, Midget Muay Thai, and keystone cops gangsters who are either not straight, or can't shoot straight either. Really, the plot doesn't have much substance to it, and it is very difficult to divulge it with spoilers, since it is too difficult to follow anyway. I watched this film in the Thai release version, and its Western release version as well, for one thing only, and that is to watch Jeeja kick ass.Read more ›

Unlike her other films this one has more comedy than action. The action scenes are great but they are not as frequent as the quirky comedy characters overacting for a laugh. THIS GIRL continues to do amazing action which is the only reason to watch a film like this. There are many other films that are more humourous but few with a better looking female martial artist. If you enjoyed her other films you will enjoy this one, just don't expect too much action because this is more of a comedy than a action film. THIS GIRL has charisma which carries this film and displlays her talent as an actress not just a martial artist.

In her latest movie "This Girl is Badass" Jeeja Yanin plays a bike messenger Jukkalan, who is attacked by a group of local thugs. Jukkalan happens to be a martial arts fighter, and using her bicycle and other props, she fights back those thugs in a style that slightly reminds us of Jackie Chan.

In fact, "This Girl is Badass" is not a bona fide action movie. This is more like an action comedy with too little martial arts and too much comedy. The film's storyline is almost non-existent. You meet the heroine's kind "Uncle" Wang (Petchtai Wongkamlao, who also directs) and her love-smitten childhood friend Duan (Chalerm Yamchamang). You get several nice action set-pieces in "This Girl is Badass," but, entertaining as they are, they need more energy and creative ideas.

The comedy with cartoonish jokes (with a few rom-com elements) is a change of pace for the star Jeeja Yanin. The "Chocolate" star is surprisingly effective as an ordinary girl who has a crush on a handsome singer in her neighborhood. It is unfortunate that the thread is discarded rather unceremoniously.

It seems there is more than one version of the movie. If so, that will explain some subplots that do not make sense at all (like Uncle Wang's past, for instance).

Whichever version you watch, "This Girl is Badass" is not an action-packed movie that you might be led to believe from the name of the star. The action you get here is acceptable, but those who are looking for intense martial arts action of "Chocolate" will be disappointed.

Format: Blu-ray
Jeeja Yanin, the spectacular kick boxer who made a huge impression in CHOCOLATE and RAGING PHOENIX, is given more of a humanistic characterization in this romantic/comedy action film directed by Petchtai Wongkamlao (aka Mum Jok Mok), who is also the director who brought Thai kick-boxing marvel Tony Jaa to stardom in ONG BAK and its sequels. In THIS GIRL IS BADASS, Wongkamlao also stars as the guardian of Jukkalan (Yanin), a teenager who works for a bicycle delivery service that also serves as a front for drug trafficking, which inevitably leads to conflict between two pairs of mob bosses. The supporting cast all does a good job, especially Wongkamlao who generates a lot of sympathy as a troubled guardian who tries his best to help the ungrateful Jukkalan. Both are supported by a fistful of wildly eccentric supported actors playing over-the-top caricatures of mob bosses and gangsters - as if every Thai comic was given a role in this film and way more screen time than their character deserves. The film becomes a bad cartoon punctuated by too infrequent action scenes, although some of those are pretty terrific (including one in the bicycle repair shop with various bicycle implements being used, Jackie Chan style, in the fight), there are also a lot of really unfunny humor and inane puppy love moments which are likely to try the patience of Western viewers used to far more sophisticated and provocative comedic romance. But despite the film's innocently silly humor, it's an entertaining watch, and Yanin proves to be as capable a leading lady as she is a raging wild woman in the fight scenes. Viewed from a Thai cultural perspective, the story's level of humor and caricature is perhaps a little more tolerable. The 99-minute USA release from Magnolia reportedly (and thankfully) trimmed some extended subplots out, and fortunately retains the original Thai voice track with subtitles that are inconsistently translated but follow-able.
