Good old fashioned South Korean fun

Opening with a seven minute POV-sequence in which the heroine punches, kicks, stabs and shoots her way through an army of hapless gangsters, THE VILLAINESS is an over-the-top action extravagance of the distinctively South Korean variety. In addition to a non-stop parade of thrilling set-pieces Jung Byung-gil’s expertly choreographed film features a steady stream of bizarre twists which keeps the audience on their toes even when the film occasionally slows down the pace. This is the Korean lovechild of NIKITA and KILL BILL you never knew you wanted.
