Really a very good movie! "The Villainess" is an intense action movie, the first eight minutes are to get your brain in the rhythm, right from the start, starting with a bloody opening, practically a carnage, Where a woman (swordsman) in a hallway, cuts mercilessly everything that moves on its way through a vertiginous camera angle. (For gamers, this scene is nostalgia, after all who does not remember "Metal Gear Solid" created by Hideo Kojima launching for PS1 / PC in 1998! That corridor of bodies wrapped in sea of ??blood, remember !?) The cinematography is wonderful, transitions beautiful and clean as we realize that there is a really exciting story at stake. Unfortunately, it is a very confusing narrative, or an often and often organized structure, of a young fighter and assassin of talented swords used by an obviously corrupt organization to do their dirty work. Their problems are only extenuated with the arrival of a child who threatens their future and good will for both ... The film has a good acting, and the action scenes, especially the chase scene, are spectacularly staged, a movie rich in all feeling, a pity that the narrative was confusing!
