“Furies”. Movie on Netflix. Review: From Vietnam… With Lots of Action

Furies (Thanh Sói: Cúc Dại Trong Đêm) is a Vietnamese film directed by Veronica Ngo. It stars Dong Anh Quynh, Tóc Tiên and Rima Thanh Vy.

From Vietnam comes this action-packed film, a bit sordid and sprinkled with irony, entertaining and a bit “basic”: four female assassins ready to “deliver”.

Entertaining, action-packed… and full of clichés.

Movie Review

Very funny, worth it if you are looking for a pure and uncomplicated piece of entertainment, with four girls ready to destabilize the drugs and prostitution empire in Saigon.

Very good with regard to the production and editing aspects, with a lot of style… a Guy Ritchie (obvious) or Tarantino type of movie, with a touch of brutal action in the purest oriental style… which makes it the perfect way to spend a good time with its adrenaline rushes, smugglers, thugs and… girls delivering the action.

Furies (2023)

Furies is a film that, although it doesn’t stand out for its style, it knows what it’s about and how to act according to the rules: it’s a sordid film, but it knows not to overstep the mark and, in essence, it’s a film for all audiences that doesn’t want to displease nor destabilize the roots of the Asian martial arts thriller.

Perfect to have a good time with and let yourself be carried away by this almost classic cinema that has been repeated for the last twenty years, nowadays in almost four continents with virtually identical success: they entertain, and they fulfill their function with greater or lesser quality.

Furies has quality production, very good performances and knows the recipe for these films by heart.

A good product that, although it limits itself to what it is, is no less enjoyable, entertaining, and, in all its sordid story of crooks, quite “healthy”.

A movie (yet another one) that doesn’t want to hurt anyone.

It wants to entertain, and it does so with its plots that are sometimes even remarkable.

P.S: For the diehard fans of these kind of movies, who always leave us “kind” comments: no, it’s not a classic, we know that, and Asian cinema has produced hundreds of films better than this one, but let the general public enjoy this basic entertainment that, for once, has nothing to do with Kurosawa (who we know, besides being Japanese, didn’t make martial arts movies).
