I fell in love with Kim. The movie is action- packed with love story- suspense-mystery twists. Lots of flash back and it's like putting the puzzles together until you complete all the dots towards the end. I watched it several times ( 3 and counting ).Added to my collection like Raid and Raid 2.
Forget John Wick, The Villainess is where its at for action flick fans. The fight choreography and stunt work in this film are amazing. Especially the bus and first person point of view fight scenes. The storyline is also very thrilling. The Blu Ray picture and audio quality is excellent. I highly recommend this movie to action film fans.
This film is clearly trying to take some of the last few year's greatest action films and push the camera further. The result is often dizzying and confusing, but crazy nonetheless. Once you get your bearings, the movie rarely stops. The action melding everything from Oldboy, The Raid, John Wick and infused with La Femme Nikita and some Kill Bill. Sounds like a lot - and sometimes it is, but somehow it works as something completely it's own. For that I can't help but add it to my list of some the best action films I've seen.
This action movie has some great fighting scene and camera work too, but! The acting is somewhat questionable. I know this is a Korean movie and things are somewhat different than American movies, but if you are a fan of Korean and Chinese action movies then you'll know what I am talking about.
Brutal but well choreographed action punctuates this intense flick! The lead actress is like a female John Wick,dispatching bad guys left and right, and one particularly sad part but I don't do spoilers in my reviews...
