Film Review: Furie (2019) by Le Van Kiet

Men and women with “a particular set of skills” really need to learn to beef up the security around their family and loved ones!

One of the newest action stars on the scene, Vietnamese-born actress Veronica Ngo broke out for American audiences with a stellar turn in the epic “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” even though she had already been a star in her native country for almost a decade before then.

Full Trailer for Vietnamese Action Film 'Furie' Starring Veronica Ngo

"I might be at the wrong place, but you took the wrong kid." Well Go USA has released an official trailer for Vietnamese gangster action film Furie, originally titled Hai Phuong in Vietnam, which is also the name of the lead character. The film is about a woman named Hai Phuong, an ex-gangster who is lying low in the countryside after becoming a mother, but she can't escape her violent past when her daughter is kidnapped. She jumps back in to action and will go to any lengths to bring her daughter home. Sound good? Furie stars Veronica Ngo, who has become an international star after playing Paige Tico in the opening scene of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The cast also includes Hoa Tran, Thanh Nhien Phan, and Mai Cat Vi. This trailer starts slow, but it gets seriously badass by the end. Must watch for anyone looking out for new action films.
