Hard Revenge Milly (2008)

Country: Japan
Genre: Action/Gore
Cast: Miki Mizuno, Tetsuya Nakamura, Hiroshi Ohguchi

Hard Revenge Milly is yet another over the top Japanese gore flick. This one coming from the cine-asia label made me so curious about what this would be like.

Like most films of this genre this is short (runs in at mere 40 minutes). But don’t be turned off it simply means you get a lot less faffing about and more action. Because let’s face it the non action pieces from these films aren’t the most exciting and this film didn’t have the budget of Tokyo Gore Police or Machine Girl so they put all the energy into the main part.

The story follows the adventure of Milly. A woman who saw her husband and new born child get tortured to death by a gang who are quite sadistic. After being stabbed way too many times more than I care to count, the majority of her body is replaced by mechanical parts (including a shotgun in the knee). After lots of training she goes to get her revenge.

The action scenes are rather impressive and a lot of work went into them. Nothing weird here just regular people going one on one and getting seriously cut in the process. I don’t want to spoil too much.

I’m not a really big fan of these which is strange as I often end up watching them. Hard Revenge Milly left me rather impressed and deserves a rewatch in the future I think.
