RAGING PHOENIX (2009, Rashane Limtrakul, A+)

This is my reply to Initial A in my bilingual blog:


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.



  1. Do you Have English Subtitle?
