Shot with immersive first-person shooter scenes, this Korean action movie raises the bar for action set pieces, even higher.
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-vin, BEHIND THE CAMERA) 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.

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.
