Wong plays an unassuming nightclub employee in Macao who alienates a gang of drunken men (led by Shing Fui-on). They tail her after her shift, and mount a gang assault. She attempts to enlist the aid of her former brother-in-law (Lam) - an ex-triad now confined to a wheelchair. A lounge owner in HK, he hires her as a waiter and finds her a place to live, but refuses to help in her quest for vengeance. She, however, has other ideas. When a chance encounter provides access to the first assailant (Shing), she improvises the first of a series of horrifically graphic acts of vengeance. The remaining gang members try to neutralize their unknown adversary. Written by
"Her Venegeance" is easily one of the darkest HK films I have seen.The film is as great as I expected. Very dark and merciless and surprisingly anti-violent in its theme after all which is of course great thing and makes the film much more noteworthy piece of work. The violence is raw and the inhuman rape scene is shot in dark cemetery with incredibly dark blue lightning so the scene is as strong and intense as they come. Also veteran actor the late great Lam Ching Ying does a great role as a wheelchair bound uncle who first tries to make the protagonist forget her thoughts about revenge but after all starts to prefer revenge himself, too, and after that, the hell is on the loose and the final bloodbath is very insane again. Among the greatest HK dark thrillers of all time.So if you are a fan of extreme Asian cinema give this gem a look.9 out of 10.
