I don’t know why it was called Chocolate, other than because the girl likes chocolate. Still though, pretty good movie. Light on plot, and it felt like they were running out of ideas at times, but all the fight choreography was raw and nifty.
One of the best movies out there, yes it's not horror, but it's a damn good action movie.
Tell me why this, or Ong Bok are even on Shudder ...... action is not horror.
YES YES YES This movie is awesome and one of my husband and I’s top favs.
I've never seen ONG-BAK before, but it looks like I'll need to remedy that IMMEDIATELY. I love that SHUDDER has a "Revenge" queue, and that this is part of it! I've been hearing a lot about CHOCOLATE on-and-off over the years, and so glad to finally catch up to it! If you are a martial arts movie fan from back-in-the-day, or just a lover of action movies in general, you can't go wrong with this! It has a different take on the usual martial arts tropes, and would've made a great anime feature if they'd chosen to go that way, instead of live-action. I will definitely want to see more from this director! And by the way, if you don't believe this is straight-up legit, stick around for the BTS footage behind the end credits! When the trailer said "NO WIRES", no padding, no safety nets of any kind...they weren't PLAYING!
