Kick-ass deluxe, incredible fighting scenes, female tour de force
11 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

28th STOCKHOLM INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. DAY 1, NOV 8th 2017. Swedish premiere.

The opening scenes boasts some of the most amazing fighting sequences I've ever seen -- and it's a woman crushing hordes of male gangsters.

‪"The Villainess" (2017) is the third feature film by South Korean writer-director Jung Byung-gil, who made his international breakthrough with "Confession of Murder" (2012). It stars Kim OK-bin as a revenging hitwoman who is forced into cooperation with the police. Kick-ass deluxe.‬
