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.
