RAGING PHOENIX (2009, Rashane Limtrakul, A+)

This is my comment in Screenout webboard:

ชอบ ORPHAN กับ จีจ้า ดื้อสวยดุ มากๆเช่นกัน เราอินกับตัวละครนางเอกในจีจ้ามากๆ เพราะเรารู้สึกว่า ถ้าหากเป็นเรา เราก็ยินดีทำเพื่อพระเอก ถึงแม้พระเอกจะไม่ได้รักเราก็ตาม

I also love RAGING PHOENIX too
I think this film is one of my guilty pleasure in 2009 .Many critics hate it but I love the fighting style and I think it is better than Chocolate and Tom Yum Goong.

I'm very glad you like RAGING PHOENIX. Yes, I love the fighting style in this film. It is half-serious, half-fanciful. I hate CHOCOLATE (B- ), and ONG BAK (C- ), so I was surprised that I fell in love with RAGING PHOENIX. I guess the reason why I love it is partly because the heroine in RAGING PHOENIX is a woman with desire, so I can identify myself easily with the heroine. I'm not a kind of person who can identify himself with a hero or a heroine who fights for her mother like in CHOCOLATE, or fights for the goodness/patriotism/religion like in ONG BAK. I often feel a kind of disdain for this kind of hero/heroine. But as for the heroine who fights for a handsome man like in RAGING PHOENIX, I can identify myself with her very easily.

Another reason why I love RAGING PHONIX is because it reminds me of the Japanese TV series SUKEBAN DEKA, in which girls fight in a fanciful way.
