Top Ten Female Martial Artists in Asian Film

Asia Pacific Arts: APA Top Ten: Female martial artists in Asian film: "Compared with Hollywood, Asian cinema has seen far more bona-fide female action stars that can inspire empowerment as much as awe. And though Prachya Pinkaew's recent film Chocolate is only young star Jeeja Yanin's first big-screen role, we're ready to enshrine her in that legacy. There's no better validation for her performance in Chocolate than to say that she's worthy of comparison to some of Asian cinema's finest."
