The Villainess



South Korean filmmaker Jung Byung-gil takes a familiar story — trained as an assassin, a young woman (Kim Ok-bin) must use her skills against her mentors after she’s double-crossed — and hits the overdrive button. Some inventive first-person-POV fight scenes and a dizzying battle on a bus immediatel­y distinguis­h this from other “Asia Extreme” action flicks, but it was the three-way sword fight on speeding motorcycle­s (!) that had action-movie fans asking, “How the hell did they do that?”
