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.
Starring Eun-ji Jo, Ok-bin Kim, Seo-hyeong Kim, Ye-Ji Min, Ha-kyun Shin, Jun Sung
