THE VIL­LAIN­ESS

OUT 15 SEPTEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Be­gin­ning and end­ing with crazy-assed set-pieces to ri­val Woo, The Raid or Hard­core Henry, this South Korean riff on Nikita sees Sook-hee (Kim Ok-bin) trained as a sleeper-cell as­sas­sin only for her first mis­sion to be scop­ing ghosts from her past. The plot­ting is tan­gled, the emo­tional un­der­tow slight, but the ac­tion keeps on com­ing, in­clud­ing a blis­ter­ing multi-player sword fight on speed­ing bikes. Jamie Gra­ham
