  1. Eric Ortiz García's rating of the film The Villainess

  2. Lthm2's rating of the film The Villainess

    Has an authentic kinetic energy, of a very joyful Luc Besson. Ok-Bin Kim is making wonders (last seen in Thirst)

  3. P D Dawson's rating of the film The Villainess

    As a revenge plot, this isn't Oldboy in disguise, far from it, but the action is so fresh and newfangled, that one is willing to accept such shortcomings of plot and still give it four stars, for its viscerally-charged action alone, if nothing else.

  4. Babak Geranfar's rating of the film The Villainess

    Don`t whistle or you loose your head! "The Villainess" is video game style, highly emotional avenge more that disappears all the best endeavors of korean masters visual style in a snap. It is an emerging continuum of graphic images of violence which lands in subtle editing mastery of time and space. Just remember the opening sequence transition cut from he pov to third person to realize what you just saw!

  5. INZER's rating of the film The Villainess

  6. Renton47's rating of the film The Villainess

    It required extraordinary goodwill for me to stick with this and were it not for a peculiar internal logic I might not have. This film shows the wackest shit with a straight face - not just its brutal, cruel violence, but mainly its epic melodrama, a romance in the oddest circumstances imaginable. It anchors the visual noise of the action, which contains stunning achievements amidst the OTT display of craft.
