Remmy’s Review of Revenger

Revenger, 15 January 2019, rated for Mature Audiences. Do not let the cover fool you. This German/Korean film has subtitles and much of it is in English surprisingly enough. An Interpol detective loses his family in the harshest of ways. Although the perpetrator goes to prison, the detective wants revenge and gets himself sent to an island for criminals, to seek it.

This reminded me of an old-time movie because you can really tell who the bad guys and the good guys are. There is no nudity, there is no gore, but there is plenty of blood. He is befriended by a little girl, in trouble, and has to deal with good guys that want him dead, and the bad guy he is after.

You will not see anything new in this film, a bunch of Karate style fighting, which by the way brings me to one thing I noticed. The Roman Republic armies used a certain way to place their feet for balance and to push into the enemy. This movie has that, but for some reason the actors could not keep their balance, I thought it was strange.

Overall the movie was good, you get to see sights you do not normally see, and the acting was sub par, but it is still an enjoyable action flick. I rate it 4 stars out of 5.

    This is a decent action movie. From some of the Asian films that I’ve seen, the style of acting reminded me of some 1950s Japanese movies. This type of acting, where some of the actors made exaggerated facial expressions, is a bit like Kabuki theater.
    The little girl in the movie was very annoying. I did notice one or two inconsistencies throughout the film, but they weren’t enough to weaken the story line.
