Verdict on Kill Boksoon
Kill Boksoon is an action thriller following an assassin that is trying to live a normal life too. It sees her reputation causing everyone fear despite the quiet normal life away from the killing. However, it is her relationship with her daughter that becomes her most difficult problem in life.
This is a big action movie that continues to show the idea of an assassin trying to escape the underworld only to get dragged back. However, this does put a slight spin on that idea by showing us a difficult spell away from the world. When we see a lot of these styled movies, it is a young family they are trying to move away with. This movie brings us into the teenagers being difficult stage.
When it comes to the action it is big, great fight sequences throughout the film. It does give us a large number of enemies for her to face causing a larger-scale battle. This leaves bodies flying around everywhere while building a larger network of criminal assassins lined up.
Where to Watch: Kill Boksoon is available on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – Kill Boksoon is a big action movie leaving plenty of bodies in the movie.
