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.

Jeeja Yanin, our action star from Chocolate, returns! In this movie she's hired to smuggle goods between two gangsters. I first saw this movie in Thai, so I didn't understand much of the plot, now I have to watch it with English subtitles. I love the action scenes and I say it's one of her better movies next to Chocolate.

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.

I am not a film critic. I am a huge fan of Jeeja Yanin.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the plot of this film leaves a lot to be desired. I don't watch these types of films for the plot so if you're going in with similar expectations to my own (which is that the film is silly, action-packed, and super-cliche) you're likely to love it as much as I do. There certainly was more humor than action and what action there was was even more silly and nonsensical than usual for a Jeeja Yanin performance. The slap-stick humor reminded me of Stephen Chow's films. It was completely over the top but I laughed so hard, I cried. Unlike some other reviewers, I don't think the subtitles are bad or that the jokes are difficult to understand for an English-speaking audience. On the contrary, I found the jokes very entertaining and even picked up some Thai slang which you can be sure I'll put to good use.

With the multitude of negative reviews for this film, I was hesitant about buying it but I don't regret it. This is not Chocolate or Raging Phoenix so I'd advise viewers not to harbor false expectations from associations with those films.
