Hope you all are staying safe and healthy!
I’ve binged watched a show as well as this Vietnamese movie this past weekend… and I made sure I gave all of my thoughts on this…especially since this is in my 1st ever Vietnamese movie review for all time! As well as my 1st and last movie for the month of March! April is officially tomorrow ✌
Anyways been a long time coming and finally presenting…
Furie Vietnamese Movie Review
Disclaimer: Pictures of the show, cast are not mine. And just add, info on the cast I got from Wikipedia, MyDramaList and Asian wiki.✌️
Furie also known as Hai Phoung can be found on Netflix!
First off… please don’t take what I say seriously… just with a grain of salt, like with music. I do not have a professional degree in film, literature and television… But I do LOVE movies, books and tv shows, most especially if they capture my interest somehow.
Despite the lack of degree, I will still do this Vietnamese Movie review as a Asian show lover and a Movie lover…. And just to clarify too, I apologize for any run-ons or any grammatical errors… But I will be honest about my thoughts and feelings in this review.
I will first talk about the main actress of Furie… Ngo Thanh Van..
Ngo Thanh Van aka Veronica Ngo is a Vietnamese actress.
In Furie, Ngo Thanh Van plays the main role in this film, as Hai Phuong. She is an ex-gangster who is estranged from her family after her fathers disowns her for having an affair with an gangster as well as getting involved in criminal activity. She gives birth to her daughter Mai after she got a gangster arrested, she decides to lie low in the countryside and retire from criminal activity. There she becomes a debt collector and she is barely able to support herself and her daughter.
A quick summary of Furie…
Furie is about a former female gangster named Hai Phuong, who ho is estranged from her family after her fathers disowns her for having an affair with an gangster as well as getting involved in criminal activity. She gives birth to her daughter Mai after she got a gangster arrested, she decides to lie low in the countryside and retire from criminal activity. There she becomes a debt collector and she is barely able to support herself and her daughter. Her daughter Mai gets bullied consistently due to Hai Phuong’s reputation as a debt collector and for not having a father. This makes Mai want to stop going to school and help support her mom, so she won’t be hated anymore.
One day, while at the market, Hai Phuong sees Mai being accused of stealing a wallet and the witnesses pressures Hai Phuong to take their side. This leads to Mai ‘s feelings getting hurt and getting upset at her mom for not believing her so she scolds her mom for trusting strangers more that her own family and runs away. When it is reveals that Mai is framed, Hai Phuong tries to find Mai and apologize to her but she is captured by thugs…
And this is where the story begins…
Now my actual review which is honestly will be much shorter than the recap of the story…
This is because I don’t want to spoil the movie too much..
First and foremost….
Ngo Thanh Van is totally badass!!! She may not be femme fatale in this movie but there is no denying she is a skilled woman in various martial arts and handling of weapons! From what I can tell that she had been training since she was young especially from her techniques and form.
The fight choreographers for this movie did an absolutely awesome job!
In my opinion, Ngo Thanh Van who playing the raging mother Hai Phuong is the epitome of a badass woman! In Furie, you can’t help but root for her and feel sorry for her…and also admire her badassness.
The rest of the cast did well in their roles too whether they are major, supporting or major characters!
On the movie itself, even though the storyline is slightly cliché or similar to other kidnapping turned rescue movies I’ve watched, that is… except in this case….a mother who was a former gangster turned into a lowly enforcer or loan shark who then turns into a raging desperate mom racing to save her kidnapped daughter!
Despite, being slightly cliché, I still enjoyed the movie!
On a serious note, I loathe these scumbags that victimize people especially children! And in my opinion, they deserve to get their asses kicked and to rot in jail! Death is a easy way out for them!
Yes, it does have some slow parts but once the story gets going and the action comes in…To me, it becomes dynamic and close to heart stopping.
Anyways, I highly recommend Furie! It is an awesome movie!
But fair warning…. like my previous posts, such as JAILBREAK, MARIA,The Villainess and BUYBUST, there is gore and intense action fight scenes, so this movie is SO NOT FOR KIDS!
Once again, the Furie can be found on Netflix!
