A fairly good fighting movie

Looks like I'm the first person to review this. It seems odd that seemingly no one has seen this (no reviews anywhere, except a few in French),and there's no information about this movie on IMDb The movie is starred by Dida Diafat, A Thai boxing champion, and it's based on his autobiography, although his character is called Ryan. So he's playing himself, I suppose. Diafat's character gets thrown in jail in France, where he learns the basics of Thai boxing from another inmate. He then travels to Thailand to study more Thai boxing, in order to become a champion. That's basically the story, but there are a few subplots and background elements such as a romantic interest, which are likely fiction. The subplots, which seem to appear, disappear and reappear at irregular intervals, are mostly in the background and don't affect the straightforward storyline too much. However, the subplots seem a little out of place and don't quite fit the movie. It would have been better if the entire movie would have concentrated on just the Thai boxing.

Diafat's climb to the top doesn't seem unrealistic, and is presumably based on fact. There are few if any fight movie clichés. In fact, the movie could have used some, like the mandatory epic final battle where the protagonist almost loses but doesn't. The final fight is very short and ends abruptly which, again, could be factual. The fights are mostly shot well, and they alternate between close shots and fast cuts, and wider and longer takes. Considering Dida Diafat was a world champion eleven times (or so I read),the movie could have used much longer shots without fearing that it would look fake.

I couldn't see anything at fault with Diafat's acting, and generally there's really nothing wrong with the movie. I just wish it would have concentrated exclusively on the training and fighting, with more longer fighting scenes.

Lot of potential not exploited

Honestly when a kick boxing/Muay Thai movie get a score above 5 on IMDb, it means its pretty good. Don't get me wrong, i loved a lot of movies that got 3 or under, but because I'm a cinemaddict of martial arts movies and i see them as what they are, entertainment. And you have to add that for me a 5 is pretty much for a movie i was bored off, i usually always found qualities about movies except a few ones where i tough they where beyond redeemable.

But lets focus on Chok Dee...Lets begin by saying i found interesting the way they speak. I am from Quebec so french was not a problem even tough its french from France. Then when french dialogue with Thais, the movie goes into English with french subtitles, and again English is not a problem for me. Thai to Thai is in Thai with subtitles again and i loved the realistic part of this, i was never annoy by the "languages barriers".

The movie start pretty good with the prisons scenes and the whole training into the Thai camp. But if the training sessions are perfect, i found too that the fights seem too much quick and realistic... They tried to mimic a real fight and they succeed on that, but it lost that appeal of "he is in the battle of his life". They builded up that big stadium of the end and the champ to finally be relay on second zone with a quick knock out while something more important in the story happen... then BAM its over... I dunno, i felt let down on the fights... I guess real life feels of fights don't work in movies and thats why i love so much martial art movies but never was that big of a fan of UFC for example... I guess i love the rocky feel where the hero is beaten up to almost k.o and then come back bleeding like hell and win the match...

Anyway not a bad movie, a+ effort on the story they made, but the fights didn't do it as much for me.
