Introduction to Furie Movie Review by Ms. H
Furie is a Vietnamese movie that has a limited release in theatres so you may or may not be able to watch it until it goes to DVD or streaming services. Is it worth your time to see the Furie movie? Check out my movie review to find out.
Plot of the Furie Movie
Furie is a kidnapping movie with actions centered around the intent to inflict drastic harm on the victims. If you watch the trailer, you will see the mother searching for her child who has been kidnapped while she was bartering at an outdoor market. Philosophically, the Furie movie illustrates determination and resilience on the part of the mother to rescue her daughter. Regardless of your take on the plot, I think you will admire the tenacity and drive the mother exhibited in saving her child.
Subtitles in the Furie Movie
As expected, the Furie movie has subtitles in English while the actors spoke Vietnamese. Even if you are not too keen on movies with subtitles, due to the artistry used in filming the scenes, eventually you may not notice the words at the bottom of the screen. You may view the subtitles as a way to keep up with the actions and scenarios in the Furie movie. The good news is that after watching the Furie movie, you may come away wanting to see more of these type movies regardless of the subtitles.
Veronica Ngo as the Main Character in the Furie Movie
I’ve seen many kidnapping type movies before such as Kidnap and Breaking In, et. al. This movie stands out on its own, mainly because I think the film got its message across to the audience. Additionally, you may enjoy the fighting choreography where everyone moves so fast, you may wonder if there were any mishaps.
The stand out character was of course, Veronica Ngo who plays the part of the mother searching for her kidnapped daughter. I would like to give kudos to the other actors as well who made it possible for Veronica Ngo’s fighting karate-type actions to shine.
You will probably have an opinion as to which fight scene is your favorite; however, I would like to suggest you pay attention to Vernoca Ngo’s character's second battle against her enemy who appeared to be the head of the criminal gang.
Misses in the Furie Movie
There were a few misses in the Furie movie. Spoiler alerts: For example, there is a scene in the movie where in one moment she is soaked from fighting in the river, and in the next scene she’s walking around in the same clothing which is now magically dry. Also you may question how she was rescued from the bottom of the river, shackled and handcuffed when it was unlikely that anyone knew where she was.
Another minor miss was the delay in showing how she obtained her fighting skills which was finally shown during one of her flashbacks. I think if this portion was at the beginning of the movie, the audience could follow the story more closely without wondering how Veronica Ngo as Hai Phuong acquired her fighting skills in the first place.
To add to these misses, when her daughter was on the boat with her captors, for some reason she did not try to escape by jumping off the boat -- especially when it was near the shore.
Assessment of the Furie Movie
The above being said, the movie Furie impressed me not only because of the artistry of the choreographed fight scenes, but also I think it gave positive messages that include among other things for one to be strong, move forward and most importantly, never give up regardless of obstacles.
Additionally, I think you will find this movie will keep your attention because of the riveting action scenes as well as the storyline itself. To respond to the question posed earlier, I think it would be worth your time to see the movie Furie if you are able to do so.
Rating of the Furie Movie
Based on a rating of 1 star to 5 stars with 5 stars being the highest, I rate the Furie movie 5 stars.
