Description

Debut director Coralie Fargeat announces her stunning arrival, painting a crimson canvas of hypnotic beauty and bloody retribution in this razor-sharp feminist subversion of the revenge-thriller. Jen (fearlessly embodied by Matilda Lutz, Rings) is enjoying a romantic getaway with her wealthy boyfriend which is suddenly disrupted when his sleazy friends arrive for an unannounced hunting trip. Tension mounts in the house until the situation abruptly––and viciously––intensifies, culminating in a shocking act that leaves Jen left for dead. Unfortunately for her assailants, Jen survives and reemerges with a relentless, wrathful intent: revenge. A white-knuckle tale of transgression and transformation, REVENGE gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre.

    The things she did or didn't do were never mentioned in any review I read for this movie! Kill Bill really! Tanantino could have made this movie 15 years ago it would have been a box office hit. Oh well a French revenge movie? Well it's great and too all the intellectuals out their that get caught up in "That's Not Possible", sorry. It's a great film that has good acting, great characters and wonderful photography! Bravo maestro! Bravo Coralie Fargeat for making it so. Move over Rocky. OK there's holes in story and you need to suspend reality!
  • Amazing.

    The best female revenge flick I’ve seen! You need to have patience as this is a slow burn, but the multiple payoffs are definitely worth the wait!
  • Cannes bias

    This movie is crap but all the critics fawn over it because it played at Cannes. Don't waste your money or time. There's plenty better better movies on iTunes.

    One of the year’s best surprises. It won’t be for everyone but if you enjoy a good revenge flick, you’ll love it too. Tarantino would approve.
  • Half the show is subtitled

    Acting is poor. Story is weak, Music is irritations. And the worst this about it I spent money on it.

    The story is not bad in many ways . YET Falling on a big wooden branch and even getting dissloged from tree said branch was on in the way she did it in the movie ...well not likely ...ALSO to be moving around for as long as she did AND still have the strength to ride a four wheeler most the night AND find a cave eat a tiny bit of Payotee and do what she did with the knife . THAT was terrible directing from some one who has not clue about how IMPOSSIBLE it could be for her to lose so much blood and STILL do all these things . I only gave 3 stars because the she did a good job on her part yet I blame the director for be so crappy !
  • More "Survival" Than "Revenge"

    This movie is incredibly...intelligent. You can see that the characters are intelligent and focused on what they are doing, doing what an actual person would do to solve problems. You can see the cliches coming and the script neatly goes around them in interesting ways. The characters are realistic[at first] and are well acted. Once the main character hits her stride you'd root for her all day. However, the movie is a definite misnomer. Go into this movie expecting a gory, hyper-violent, oddly relatable, revenge power fantasy and you'll be disappointed. It's a tale of survival. And the hunted turning on the hunters. It just isn't revenge-y. That satisfaction at the end of revenge films? It isn't here. Also the main antagonists are Frenchmen. Hunting in the Mojave desert. For some reason. I thought about it for half the movie.

    Great idea where the woman gets over on the male asshats who who abuse her and take her for a fragile creature. This could have been so much better, but too much suspension of disbelief. With all of the blood these characters lost, and the horrific wounds they suffered, they should have been dead 3 times over. Dull and pointless.
