Full Trailer for Vietnamese Action Film 'Furie' Starring Veronica Ngo
"I might be at the wrong place, but you took the wrong kid." Well Go USA has released an official trailer for Vietnamese gangster action film Furie, originally titled Hai Phuong in Vietnam, which is also the name of the lead character. The film is about a woman named Hai Phuong, an ex-gangster who is lying low in the countryside after becoming a mother, but she can't escape her violent past when her daughter is kidnapped. She jumps back in to action and will go to any lengths to bring her daughter home. Sound good? Furie stars Veronica Ngo, who has become an international star after playing Paige Tico in the opening scene of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The cast also includes Hoa Tran, Thanh Nhien Phan, and Mai Cat Vi. This trailer starts slow, but it gets seriously badass by the end. Must watch for anyone looking out for new action films.
Here's's the official US trailer (+ two official posters) for Le-Van Kiet's Furie, direct from YouTube:

Yes, that's how a female action hero looks like. I like it, although it probably isn't quite believable it still looks fun ...

I loved the trailer and it looks a thousand times better that Atomic Blonde. I've tried on imdb, etc. to see if it was shot on film because I also like the photography and production design...along with the main actress. I'm in for sure. I gotta tell you, back in 1983 or so I had written a screenplay about a female bounty hunter. Had two producers who loved the script, but everywhere they took it in town the studio heads wanted to change the lead from being a woman to being a man. I refused as the whole script revolved around her being female. Studio heads, what a lame bunch of brain dead idiots...lol...such is the game of Hollywood. Now, all these years later there are any number of female leads in action movies. Again...such is the game in Hollywood...lol...

When I read your comment about producers' decision to make an misogynistic decision about the female action protagonist, I just didn't know what to say or thing. The more I know about those people more I get disappointed by the film in general. Because, I don't believe that can be said only about American film producers, I'm afraid, most of them are like that. Not quite all of them (hopefully), of course. And yes, I agree with you, this looks good ...

It's a clone of Taken, replacing the father rescuing daughter with mother rescuing daughter. The movie is by the number mediocre.
