Storyline

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 HKCinemagic

some cheesy moments with a wheelchair
17 October 2013 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This is one of those rape/revenge flicks that comes from the East side of the world and still hasn't or a proper release on DVD. If you can catch a copy on VHS then , just like me, you will be annoyed by the subtitles. The translation is so badly done that most of the phrases are hard to understand. Nevertheless, I enjoyed this flick because it has a few cheesy moments. But before you go hunting for Her Vengeance be sure that you will get the full uncut version. I have seen the cut version, easier to get and the revenge and nudity is cut out.

It takes a while before the revenge comes in and you have to sit through silly conversations and the search for the victims to be slaughtered by the victim. The rape itself is shown on the full uncut version and it's not that brutal, yes, it's a rape but there's almost nothing shown. The brutality lays in the fact how it was shot. Close up from the men raping our victim. The reason for raping was just the fact that she asked the men to behave while they were visiting a bar she's working in.

After the rape she goes to visit her uncle in Hong Kong and it's there she comes across the ones who deserve to die. The revenge isn't that gory after all for a flick made at the end of the eighties. But what is worth seeing is her uncle sitting in a wheelchair. the cheesy part comes in when he is defending himself. And towards the end when he is training his abilities on a roof the believability of this flick moves away. But don't stop watching because he uses his skills at the final and that is worth seeing. Here it do becomes bloody and messy. The final, over 7 minutes was left out of the cut version so be aware! Readers have seen the word nudity well that also is only to see in the uncut version and I was surprised that it involved full frontal without the blurry vagina era typical for eastern flick. One of the victim drags in drugged women to perform a lesbian sex act but it soon turns into a trio. Don't get me wrong, it isn't erotic because it's being filmed to be sold as porn.

By now you now what to expect from Her Vengeance. A not so bloody flick, but towards the end the cheesy part comes in. Not a horror at all, more some kind of an exploitation.

Gore 1/5 Nudity 1,5/5 Effects 2,5/5 Story 3/5 Comedy 0/5
