Exploding onto the screen in a kinetic flurry of hyper-stylised action, The Villainess is a stunning vengeance film about trained assassin Sook-Hee (Kim Ok-bin of Thirst) 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…  A visionary new take on the neo-noir genre.

 
“It’s always a treat to see the film that a hundred Hollywood action directors are about to rip off before they reach it." ★★★★ - Empire
