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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jeeja Yanin's Third film...A for action, the rest...meh. February 23, 2013
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 ›

3.0 out of 5 stars (2.5 STARS) More Like a Comedy Than an Action July 18, 2013
Format:DVD
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.

By tuned
Format:DVD
After Jeeja Yanin's astounding martial arts ACTION debut in "Chocolate" I went online to find out more about her. I was very sad to learn she had actually broken her neck in her next movie "Raging Phoenix". Another blow can easily leave her paralyzed or dead. My thinking that Asian movies were really tough gave way to the realization that they are very bad for the actors. The bloopers in the credits of "Chocolate" actually show many of the actors getting badly hurt doing their own stunts (the point is no one should, including Jeeja (kick in the head, etc.). I saw an interview with the man that choreographs the fight action, he described Jeeja as sometimes crying when told what she was going to do, then composing herself and doing it better than anyone.
Interviews with Jeeja clearly show a desire to leave the "pain" and do more romance, etc., so she is taking acting, etc. classes also.
Jeejas' Facebook website says she had a son in January 2013, all the best to them.
I now can see the movie industry in Asia treats actors a lot like race dogs. They go through a lot of them with severe injuries, but do not really care. It's about fame and fortune. I hope Jeeja and others like her form a strong union to institute strong safety laws.
I REALLY hope Jeeja moves to "Dancing With The Stars", being a news/sports announcer, and other safer things. She has suffered too much (and probably paid too little) for the producers and directors glory.
America has more respect for strong women and better pay, Jeeja!
P.S. I really only give it 4 stars (that for action, either the writing is lame or Thai language humor is very hard to relate to Westerners). I just wanted this message to get more attention.
THANX to "Jeejafan" for the tip about the English version.
