A good movie with a great mix of comedy and action...
8 April 2014 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

If you enjoy the Jackie Chan style movies of comedy and action mixed together with a bunch of physical acrobatics and stunts, then you will definitely also light "Jukkalan" (with the amazingly bad English title of "This Girl is Badass").

The story is about Jukkalan (played by JeeJa Yanin) who lives with Wang (played by Petchtai Wongkamlao (who also directed the movie). Jukkalan works as a bike messenger, delivering questionable goods to an even less questionable clientèle. The young Duan (played by Chalerm Yamchamang) is in love with Jukkalan, but she doesn't acknowledge him or his courting, as she has her eyes set on Pong (played by Sthit Amornvej). Things heat up and turn dangerous as various questionable bosses wants their goods and the bike messengers soon find themselves in over their heads.

Storywise, then "Jukkalan" was adequate. The story was simple and very easy to follow, however it was simple to the point where it was starting to be a tad too much. But the pace of the movie, the action and the chance to see JeeJa Yanin in a comedic action role more than makes up for the lack of a proper storyline.

Something that really had be puzzled were the characters in the movie. Most of them were really odd and hilarious, not to mention very much out there.

While "Jukkalan" doesn't match "Chocolate" or "Raging Phoenix", it is a must watch for all fans of JeeJa Yanin.
