Audience Reviews for Raging Phoenix (Deu suay doo)
The Thai movie "Raging Phoenix" has a decent potential with a poignant back story, but unfortunately it is overshadowed by drawn-out fighting scenes. Some of the scenes even takes the duration of 10 minutes or more of the movie (without any break whatsoever). After a while, it gets a tad tiring to watch.
Amazing and the best Thai girl fighting movie ever made. This was surprising me personally, because JeeJa Yanin's previous role in Chocolate was so introverted and robotic that it was essentially impossible to determine whether or not this girl could steal a scene without beating someone's brains in. In Raging Phoenix, however, she really cuts loose during the opening half as she jokes around, engages in some funny dialogue, and participates in some light-hearted fight scenes involving drunken styles of martial arts. That one-vs-many boat brawl is - now wait for it - a boat-load of fun. I love the cavern hideout finale lasts a solid 30 minutes is outstanding as well as JeeJa is going to defeat three enemies by herself while her buddies were down. Tell you the truth, I really liked JeeJa's debut movie better than this.
Rashane Limtrakul successfully brings another martial arts action film, known as Raging Phoenix, from Thailand to the screen.
At just under 1 hour and 50 minutes, this picture not only delivers the goods in the martial arts department, but it also finds the time to produce a story that does a little more than fill the scenes between the fights. It is a bit underdeveloped, but points are granted for trying.
There is a ton of action to go around. A lot of it happens in the first half before toning down for the story in the early second half. The film employs a handful of slow motion shots for the big hits; however there are still enough real time shots for some high octane fights. There are also a number of unique moves that are worth multiple viewings.
JeeJa Yanin gets the chance to show that she has some acting talent to go along with her martial arts skills. JeeJa Yanin plus drunken martial arts equals entertainment. The rest of the supporting cast is also pretty good and most of them take part in the action.
Raging Phoenix is another hit in the line of martial arts action movies. Now get drunk and unleash the pain.
