      Renee Schonfeld Common Sense Media Martial arts slaughter-fest; buckets of blood, bodies abound Rated: 2/5 Feb 5, 2019 Full Review Rob Hunter Film School Rejects It already looks like Netflix has once again gifted us with one of the year's best action movies. Feb 2, 2019 Full Review Panos Kotzathanasis HanCinema "Revenger" is barely a film, but it can definitely satisfy people that enjoy pure, violent action, and video game aesthetics. Jan 20, 2019 Full Review Eddie Strait The Daily Dot Revenger spends too much time on forgettable characters and misguided plot points. Rated: 2.5/5 Jan 18, 2019 Full Review Joel Keller Decider Don't expect anything mentally taxing, but if you just want to see someone kicking ass, Revenger is the film for you.

      Yanki T What the he'll is that 10 year old doing In that whole movie, make little realistic and less frustrating movie. That little girl is the most irritating character that I have ever watched Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/24 Full Review Audience Member It's a martial arts movie. Great for what it is. GREAT fighting, especially considering the usual lacklustre martial arts of korean movies. Loved it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Revenge is a fairly universal theme in many martial arts action films. This, early 2019, Netflix release from South Korea, doesn't try to hide the main theme- it's in the title! However, what Revenger does do better than many martial arts films is in its execution. This is a highly engaging and exciting movie to watch. Bruce Khan is Poised for International Action Stardom Bruce Khan, the co-writer on the film, stars as a police officer imprisoned on an inescapable island prison known as AP-101. His crime, attempting to murder the man that assassinated his wife and daughter. Unlike the plot of other prison films, Khan's character does not look to escape his capture. He uses this opportunity to hunt down the villainous crime boss, also imprisoned on AP-101, who ruthlessly rules the island as his own kingdom and exact his revenge. There is a subplot of Khan rescuing and protecting a young girl and her mother that are on the island, in some way, as the result of Khan's prior police work. Much of this and the main back story are left out of the film. Perhaps the writer's felt too many details of these stories would interfere with the pacing of the film, which is virtually non-stop action from the film's opening. Taekwondo is on Display in REVENGER'S Melee Khan's character speaks less than a page of dialogue; however, he has a commanding presence of the screen. He conveys pain and anger; tempered by an undercurrent of humanity. His martial arts and weaponry skills are first class. It is Khan's fighting that is the real star of Revenger. Taekwondo practitioners will revel at seeing the implementation of their signature techniques in an action film that is immersed in fight scenes that are powerful, violent, well choreographed, yet never "over the top". The film is co written by Ahn Seung-hwan and masterfully directed by Lee Seung-won. This film had me longing for more. Bruce Khan is a certified action star! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review filippo v Mi aspettavo scene di combattimento corpo a corpo dirette e coreografate alla perfezione, l'unico motivo per cui ho scelto di vedere il film. Quello che mi è stato presentato è assolutamente convenzionale e davvero poco innovativo. Le scene d'azione sono decenti, la narrazione pessima e il contesto di base potenzialmente interessante ma totalmente sprecato. Un buco nell'acqua neanche troppo clamoroso. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This would have been my favorite movie ever when I was ten. There is not plot and no characterization, just kick a** fight scenes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely shocking made no sense whatsoever Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
