Cinema Clips: Revenge

Posted By on Mon, May 14, 2018 at 10:30 AM


Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz is dynamite as Jen, mistress to Richard (Kevin Janssens), a rich man with a fancy house in the middle of the desert. Jen and Richard are enjoying a romantic getaway when Richard’s hunting buddies (Vincenct Colombe and Guillaume Bouchede) show up early and immediately commence ogling Jen.

After a night of partying and some seductive dancing by all, Jen passes out in the bedroom. Richard goes away to take care of some business for a couple of hours, and that’s all the time his friend needs to assault Jen. Upon Richard’s return, rather than helping Jen, he escalates the situation until Jen winds up impaled on a tree at the bottom of a cliff.

Where the story goes from here is where the movie gets its name; director Coralie Fargeat isn’t interested in Jen simply getting away. She patches herself up, gets herself a gun, and when the boys hunt for her after her body goes missing, major, messy bloodletting ensues. Lutz takes her character from eye candy to kickass female avenger, and her every moment on screen declares her a star. Janssens makes for a fascinatingly horrible enemy, as does Colombe as the moron who crosses the line with Jen and unleashes the fury.

Hey, Jen is super hot and super fit. The woman has been to the gym, and she will go Rambo on your ass if you wrong her. And boy, does she ever go Rambo on their asses. The results are pretty unforgettable, and Lutz puts up one of the more memorable performances of the year thus far

Available for streaming on iTunes and Amazon.com during a limited theatrical release.
