Official US Poster for Thai Martial Arts Movie Chocolate

Taste the fury! In the world of badass foreign martial arts movies, Chocolate is one of this year's best unseen gems. Although I personally missed it at two film fests, it has been receiving fairly positive reviews (read one from Twitch and one from Film School Rejects). Thanks to Twitch, we've got the official US poster for Chocolate, which is Ong Bak director Prachya Pinkaew's latest film. While the art on this poster isn't anything new, the tagline is, and it's one of the very reasons I had to share this. So do yourself a favor and check it out (and watch the trailer if you haven't) because this is finally hitting theaters in February.

Those of you that have already seen Chocolate be sure to let us know what you thought of it!

Chocolate is directed by Thai filmmaker Prachya Pinkaew, of Tony Jaa's Ong Bak and The Protector previously. The screenplay was written by Chukiat Sakveerakul (13 Beloved, Body #19) and Nepalee Sakweerakul. The film stars martial arts newcomer Nicharee "Jeeja" Vismistananda. Chocolate first opened in theaters in Thailand this February and played at the Toronto Film Festival and Fantastic Fest this year as well. Magnet Releasing will debut Chocolate in limited theaters starting on February 6th, 2009.

    I've actually seen this and it's pretty damn good starts of a bit slow but damn that girl is brutal. A must see for any1 who liked Ong-Bak. Just to let you know the story is totally rubbish but then again thats not why you eally go and see these types of movies, just enjoy the kick-ass action.
  • An all-Thai-kick-ass-movies-in-one review: Like Ong-Bak, Dynamite Warrior, Honour of the Dragon this movie also realy kicks as in in the 'ass kicking' department. And I personally thing Tony Jaa could kicks Jet Li's and jacki Chan's ass and this girl could even do that to. and I say this as a Jackie Chan and Jet Li fan! However the Thai language is even worse than the Chinese and Japanese to hear if your not familiar with it. And some of the characters and 'humor' is even more...strange. The stories are very cheesy, but I have no problems with that. In a nutshell: superior kick ass action, best martial arts (ever?), awesome stunts, cheesy dialogs/story/characters and hard to follow.

    I saw this in Bangkok when it was screening there & was not as impressed, a few cool moves but . . . 3 out of 5 maybe

    Will this be dubbed or will it have subtitles? If it got dubbed I'll probably just buy this from amazon so I can watch it with subs and not have to pay attention to horrible dubbing.

    Great Movie, as good as the original Ong Bak and much funnier. BTW. I just saw Ong Bak 2 (which is not the same as Tom Yung Goong), which kinda sucked - good fights but way too repetitive. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0785035/

    Bought this one awhile back, not too impressed but it's still solid in some parts. She's not as polished as Jaa and they use too much slow-motion. Interesting that they will bring this out here, let's see how it goes.

    Saw it at Denver Film Fest. Loved it. That girl is amazing. The action was pretty sweet.
  • Lincoln Smith
    This film starts out terribly and it is painfully obvious that this girl is not a very good martial artist. The story and production values are also very bad with the bad acting that is very typical from films of this sort. Ong Bak seems like a rare gem when compared to the entire ouvere of Thai Martial arts cinema. This is no exception. HOWEVER, the final fight scene is worth watching and can be viewed on youtube, it includes some pretty amazing looking falls from multiple stories up, with the stunt men hitting the ground in the same shot, very hard and painful looking. I'm sure this was altered with CGI somehow, but it was done very well. But this film sucks overall, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS POS.
  • ADA
    Not so good as Ong Bak, but the girl is amazing, must admit. But if watched it in cinema I would probably fell asleep.
  • this movie came out in hong kong a few months ago and it was amazing. this girl is just insane. the stunts, the fights. they are so brutal. you are in awe but at the same time you have to cringe at the violence and the hurt that this girl dishes out. but well worth the ticket to the cinema.
