Cross Luc Besson’s Nikita and the chop’n’slice of a Tarantino film and you’ve got this rollercoaster ride of action and mayhem.
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.
“Midnight slickness is The Villainess’s signature look, and one it rocks with mesmeric panache.” – Daily Telegraph
