Cross those fabulous 1970s female-driven Japanese exploitation thrillers with a dash of Luc Besson's 'Nikita' and the chop' n' slice of a Tarantino film and you've got this rollercoaster ride of action and mayhem. Kim Ok-vin leads the charge - literally, in the film's bravura opening sequence, as Sook-hee - an assassin out to avenge those who wronged her. 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. This is serious, ass-kicking fun. ★★★★★ “A high-speed, extraordinary feat of cinema" – Zoe Tamara, The Upcoming ★★★★ "Propulsive, wildly entertaining and hyperkinetic" - Kevin Maher, The Times ★★★★ "Wonderfully lurid" - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent ★★★★ "Combines a familiar but fun story with slick combat action" - Anna Smith, Time Out ★★★★ "There’s barely a bum note here, and not a jaw left undropped" - Helen O'hara, Empire ★★★★ "Built from almost nothing but great shots, flabbergasting stunts and mad narrative curlicues, all working hand-in-hand to maximise audience delight" - Robbie Collin, The Telegraph BBFC Certified 18 - strong bloody violence, gory images
