Verdict on Furies
Furies is an action thriller that follows four women that want revenge on the men that abused them and many others. It sees them train and prepare to take back their freedom from the ruthless gangsters.
This is an all-out action-packed movie. The fight sequences a long and relentless as the women overcome the odds in battle. However, not everything is as clean-cut as you could imagine. Many of the fights are filled surprised and it isn’t just a clean-cut victory for the women. This does get to focus on dealing with the very real problems of sexploitation in certain countries.
There is a certain style that takes away any realism which is fine and adds to the chaotic enjoyment along the way. The performances are great from the whole cast and we could easily return for more adventures in the future.
Where to Watch: Furies is available on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts –Furies is a big chaotic enjoyable movie.
