Furie, the previous martial arts revenge thriller from The Princess filmmaker, should be seen ...

Hulus' latest subversive princess film, The Princess, was dropped on Hulu this past Friday. Quickly (and accurately) described as Rapunzel meets The Raid, it's a very different, physically demanding role for its star Joey King, who shared with Polygon that she performed roughly 85 to 90% of what you see in the film.

The Princess is directed by Le-Van Kiet and stars Veronica Ngo, who plays Joeys princess' mentor, and teaches her in swordfighting. But back in 2019, Kiet and Ngo collaborated for one of the best martial arts films in recent memory: Furie, a smash-hit Vietnamese revenge thriller. If you haven't seen it yet, there's no better time than the present.

Furie is a funny way to invent the well-known dangerous person who kidnapped their child. Instead of being a father who once served in a special force group (think all the post-Taken Liam Neeson projects), Furie is about a mother (Ngo), known as Hai Phuong, who was a former gangster. He now lives a quiet life in a small rural area where Hai Phuong has to use her old knowledge and connections to rescue her infant.

Furie is chock-packed with fantastic fight scenes, like the opening scene above in an outdoor food market. Kiet utilizes the settings to enhance the choreography, and the film oozes with color in both interior and exterior settings (there is another thrilling fight scene later on in a neon-soaked house).

Ngo is the show that enables her to convey her displeasure, displeasure, and compassion both through her fighting and in the quieter scenes. It's a great screenfighter who is capable of achieving her dreams, but it's also the kind of role that should precede a long career as an action lead. As Kiet will tell you, Ngo comes by that fighting ability hoax.

Veronica said she would not be in a bar brawl with her. He saw her in action. [Shell be] in the middle of a take where her knuckles have busted and be like Nah, but that's nothing.

Furie was a huge hit in Vietnam, breaking the record for the highest-grossing Vietnamese film ever. Several months after its domestic release, the audience exploded into a vibrant international group of action fans, according to Kiet.

He said that streaming is merely a demonstration of the power of today's streaming. People are willing to watch something that has subtitles, and it still resonates with them.

What are you waiting for if you haven't seen Furie yet?

Furie is available for download on FuboTV and Hi-Yah!. It is also available for digital rental and purchase on VOD vendors like Apple, Vudu, and Google Play, or for free with ads (but without subtitles) on Plex.
