Honed from childhood into a merciless killing machine by a criminal organization, assassin Sook-hee is recruited as a sleeper agent with the promise of freedom after ten years of service

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 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. Initially refusing, Sook-hee soon realises it is her only method of escape, until she is given a new assignment that suddenly changes everything… 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

“Equal parts Kill Bill, Nikita, John Wick, Hardcore Henry and HK-era John Woo.” – Screen Anarchy 

“Bookended by two astonishing action sequences, Byung-gil Jung’s hotly anticipated THE VILLAINESS is without doubt one of the most thrilling films of the year. – Eye for Film
