Chocolate – By Wesley Morris – Globe Staff

It’s called “Chocolate,” but “Cheese” would have been just as good. Soaked with tears, full of schmaltz, and yet strewn with bodies, Prachya Pinkaew’s new kick-’em-up is extreme action, extreme melodrama, and extremely hard to resist. Were I to make a movie about a young autistic Thai woman who goes on a martial arts rampage to collect outstanding debts owed to her ill ex-gangster mother who needs the money for chemotherapy, I hope I’d end up with something like “Chocolate.” It’s part karaoke video, part “Kill Bill.”
