Following the Tony Jaa hits Ong Bak and Tom Yum Goong, director Prachya Pinkaew returns with more relentless, intense Muay Thai action. Replacing Jaa here is Jeeja Yanin, who plays an autistic female kickboxer raising money to help her ailing mother by beating it out of the gangsters she knew in her past. Brilliantly choreographed fight scenes drive the film, while the eponymous confectionery fuels the film's unique heroine.
