Looking for something outside of the US? Vietnamese action movie Furies should be welcome for anyone who can’t watch yet john wick 4 On cinemas.
Running just under two hours, the film follows numerous angry vigilantes who band together to take down a sinister crime syndicate that controls the streets of Saigon in the 1990s.
In our review of the new movie, we ultimately gave it a PAUSE rating saying:
“Overall, Furies impresses with its kinetic pacing, punching, and production, but the uninspired dialogue and long running time prevent the film from reaching the heights of its obvious influences. Netflix adds another female-led action actor to watch alongside recent releases Kate and Gunpowder Milkshake.
