Bloody revenge is at the heart of this stylish, kinetic action-thriller that gives a welcome shot of adrenaline to the classic femme fatale story. 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 - and she jumps at the chance for a normal life. But soon enough, secrets from her past destroy everything she's worked for, and now nobody can stand in her way as she embarks on a roaring rampage of revenge.

Seen three or four variations of Le Femme Nikita theme including the TV series. This one was video game violent and pretty good. No point in explaining because the movies are almost all the same except this one involves the Korean mob in the storyline. Just like the previous versions the girl goes above and beyond kicking butt. No complaints.

Starts with a bang, ends with a bang, but the middle hour is somewhat mixed up. The effects are top notch but you really have to ignore how implausible it steering a car from the hood???..really??...a good popcorn movie and fun for those of us who enjoy Asian action films.

Pretty obvious early on that it is a version of the 1990 “La Femme Nikita” as the 1993 Hollywood remake with Bridget Fonda in “Point of No Return AKA The Assassin,” but dazzled with twisted subplots like the awful love affair in “Kill Bill,” a samurai stylized POV killing spree in “Hardcore Henry” and a bloody katana swordfight during a motorcycle chase. Excellent cinematography with top-notch stunts. Though the script was at times hard to follow when the Villainess was played by two actresses with very different appearance and demeanor during the extensive flash back scenes. Overall, a real treat for fans of lady assassin films.

Sorry, but really disappointing. Would not recommend this as an action film.
