I recently had the opportunity to watch the Thai film Chocolate (a. k. a. Zen, Warrior Within), a movie which is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the most repugnant concepts to come out of Easter cinema. The basic premise that so offends people is that there is a retarded girl who somehow has tremendous skills with martial arts, which she uses to beat up her ex-criminal mother’s enemies, culminating in a fight with said enemies’ secret weapon: another retard! Quite frankly, after having watched the film, I have to say that it is a martial arts masterpiece with an engaging story, and I am quite frankly offended by people who are offended by it.
WARNING! Major SPOILERS follow the cut.
