    Well Go USA Releasing The Villainess

    "Bloody revenge is at the heart of this stylish, kinetic action-thriller that gives a welcome shot of adrenaline to the classic femme fatale story. Honed from childhood into a merciless killing machine by a criminal organization, assassin Sook-hee is recruited as a sleeper agent with the promise of freedom after ten years of service - and she jumps at the chance for a normal life. But soon enough, secrets from her past destroy everything she’s worked for, and now nobody can stand in her way as she embarks on a roaring rampage of revenge."

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Exploding onto the screen in a kinetic flurry of hyper-stylised action, The Villainess is a stunning vengeance film that draws its inspiration from western classics including Nikita and Kill Bill.

    Sook-hee (Kim Ok-bin, Thirst) is a trained assassin who takes revenge on the men who murdered her father in a breathtaking opening sequence. After losing consciousness she awakes at the National Intelligence Service who recruit her as an agent to undertake confidential missions. Initially refusing, Sook-hee soon realises it is her only method of escape, until she is given a new assignment that suddenly changes everything…

    Deliriously indulging in the excesses of South Korean action, recalling Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy, The Villainess is a visionary new take on the neo-noir genre and an incredible thrill ride not to be missed.

    Pretty entertaining flick. I enjoyed it enough to watch it again when it opens at my local AMC next week. No reason for me to get this arrow over the eventual well go Blu release though, especially considering the price.

    Not much in the way of the 'sleaze factor' or exploitation elements as it's pretty much a straight forward action oriented movie. I don't even recall seeing any nudity at all?

    A couple of reviews of the Region B locked Arrow Blu ray release. I'm not pressed to pick this up as it doesn't offer much in the way of the extras and the booklet by Anton Bitel is worthless to me. I'll just wait for the cheaper upcoming Well Go USA BD which is due to be released soon.
