And especially “The Villainess” action fans must see.
Director Byeong-gil Jeong recently brought us a really dizzying spectacle with the Netflix hit “Carter”. The opening minutes of his predecessor film “The Villainess“ remember. Without a visible cut and captured by a camera that sometimes whirls really wildly through the room, a young woman slaughters her way through a veritable superiority of opponents.
At the end of this vendetta, however, Sook-hee (Kim Ok-bin) ends up in the clutches of the police. But she gets a chance at a new life. Before that, however, she must have worked for the secret service as a sleeper agent and killer for ten years. A relentless training begins.

“The Villainess” is packed with sensational action scenes. The incredibly brutal opening slaughter in the corridors of a building, a laboratory and a gym, which lasts almost ten minutes, is an absolute highlight, but also a foretaste of what is to come.
Also legendary is a motorcycle chase that follows a murder carried out by Sook-hee. The scene, which also includes sword-wielding on the bike, made such an impact that action specialist Chad Stahelski cast it for “John Wick 3” as a role model and inspiration. So there is a very similar sequence in the third part of the professional killer revenge series with Keanu Reeves, with which Stahelski bows to the Korean film.
