A Unique Movie That Makes the Revenge Genre Great While Also Reinventing It
This Movie is Amazing, lets breakdown everything that works about it, Revenge is the Directorial Debut of a Frech Filmmaker Coralie Fargeat and tells the story of a women being violently wronged and left for dead by 3 men and her returning for Revenge. While it may not sound like the most original idea for a movie the way its crafted is both Beautiful an Violent at the same an it all flows together seamlessly. The Cinematography is Phenomenal so many of the shots are so perfectly handled. The performances are Great too, Matilda Lutz who's only other movie I think she's done is the 2017 Rings but this will be the role everyone talks about when referencing her in the future and I hope this helps get her more work in the future cause the character she plays at the beginning compared to who she is by the end Is so different cause the Arc she goes through develops an changes her so much, cause in the beginning she's just some Girl where clearly her Looks are all that matters cause the camera will lingere on her Body most of the time but its intentional, its almost mocking how Hollywood views Women like this in movies, so when she goes through all this stuff an changes from a Normal Great-looking Girl with not much substance to pretty much a Badass who should be a Female Hero people need to be talking about on the future when discussing Great Heroines, the other 2 actors who play the antagonists serve there purpose for what they need to do in a movie like this provide a Villain who can challenge the Hero in a entertaining way. Then we get the Action, the Action in this is very un-epic an I mean that in the best way it uses the small-scale of just 1 on 1 encounters, they make great use of a Desert that makes the movie more Harsh and Brutal with the setting they are able to blend Great Tension along with Intense Violence which makes the scenes where she faces of against these Guys very well done, once the Violence kicks off its doesn't let up till the Credits, its just pure adrenaline where once a scene starts your not sure how it will end, and with each encounter the Violence gets more an more Bloody and Brutal, they do not hold back with this movie an it all looks realistic which helps give it that Feel of early Grindhouse films with tons of Blood which is really what this movie can boil down to if that's what your looking for it can be a Fun, Bloodfilled, 100 minutes of entertainment or you can watch it as an Beautifully Shot, Intense, Movie that does Female Empowerment RIGHT this is one of the best movies I've seen with a Female Lead I enjoyed rooting for an wanted to see her win since I wanna say Kill Bill, Overall this is the some of the Most fun I've had watching a Movie this year and if there was one Movie I'd Reccomend this year this is it 8/10 Great Throwback while Reinventing a Otherwise Dead Genre
