Furie a.k.a Hai Phuong: Starring Ngo Thanh Van (2019)

Recommended Posts

Quote

Ngo pulls double duties as producer and star of the film which is described as “in the vein of the international box office hit action film The Raid, Furie follows Hai Phuong (Ngo) a gangster who retired from the life of crime after the birth of her daughter. Despite lying low in the countryside, she can’t seem to escape her violent past when her daughter is kidnapped right before her eyes. Hai Phuong is forced back into the life she swore she would leave behind and will stop at nothing to get her daughter back from the infamous organ-trafficking ring”.

LE VAN KIET (The Rich Woman, The Lost Tour: Vietnam) is directing along with KEFI ABRIKH (Jason Bourne, Lucy) serving as action choreographer.

Only just discovered, this woman has got more than just acting and Martial Arts as part of her skill set, shes also a director, and producer. There's no way I'd have been able to guess she's forty either, whats her secret?.

John Wick and Atoic Blond, have certianly influenced the posters, in terms of colour choices, I wonder if this reflect the use of lighting in the film itself?.

Only just discovered? Dude, you may know her by the name Veronica Ngo. She starred with Johnny Tri-Nguyen (who she dated for a while) in his 2 films The Rebel and Clash, and she was also in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny. She was a Vietnamese pop star, too.

Also she had that great scene in the beginning of Star Wars: The Last Jedi that set the tone for the rest of the movie.

She played Paige Tico (Rose sister).

I've only just noticed she is also a director and producer, despite knowing about her already.

Well Go USA has bought U.S. (probably North American) rights to Furie.  "The appetite for more cross-cultural and strong female empowerment stories is accelerating at a rapid pace," said Arclight chairman Gary Hamilton.  "Now more than ever, it's important for us at Arclight to bring hidden gems that would not ordinarily be accessible such as 'Furie' to audiences around the world.  We are thrilled to partner with Well Go USA to showcase Vietnamese filmmaking at its finest.  Well Go's expertise in distributing content for the global audience makes them the perfect partner to put this Asian, female-led thriller on the cinematic map."  From https://variety.com/2018/film/asia/vietnam-film-business-furie-veronica-ngo-1203013864/

Looks a bit over-edited but damn, also looks brutal!

 

Might be the style of the trailer, fingers crossed the choreogrpahy, is not edited to death, really like the scene where Ngo Thanh Van, is pursueing the boat along the river.

Any release date on Vietnam or Asian markets for dvd/blu ray? Don't wanna wait for Well Go to release it, say in 2020?

It open in theater in Vietnam on Feb 22 & in the USA on March 1.

 Well Go USA's Home Entertainment release is usually 4 months after the theater release so we are very looking at a summer dvd/blu-ray release. May take a little longer if they decided to include a dubbed English soundtrack.

The Asian (Vietnam) market varies so not sure who have the right there or when it will get a Home Entertainment release.
