Every once in a while comes a movie that makes you stop, think and reevaluate your life. This one’s not it. This is the one you see to laugh out loud with a bunch of moviegoers.

It was another crowd pleaser of a film with The Huntresses this Wednesday as the dynamic trio of Jin-ok, Hong-dan and Ga-bi hunt down the bad guys in the funniest way possible. Bounty hunting and martial arts never looked so fun.

Jin-ok is the fearless leader, with a secret past that will come to light before she enacts her revenge against a mortal enemy. Hong-dan is the goofy newlywed, who is trying to please the impossible demands of her mother-in-law. Ga-bi is just the badass assassin with impeccable aim who somehow develops an attraction for a bumbling police constable with a knack for camouflage. It’s hijinx, disguises and tomfoolery worth of a 60’s spy movie with a kicking soundtrack and medieval gadgetry to boot. It’s Charlie’s Angels in 17th century Korea.

Recommended in a Fantasia Festival setting. It’s a very vivid and colorful film plenty of characters you’re familiar with but like old friends, it’s always nice to see them again.

Watch on YouTube

That will do for now.

Coming up!
