Revenge [Movie Review]

Revenge [Movie Review] | I remembered watching the movie a few years back but then can't seem to remember what happened in the end.

So, here's to watching this movie one more time to know whether the heroine survives in the end (normally the heroine survives, right?)

Jen is having an affair with Richard, his married neighbour. She stays in the relationship as Richard promises to divorce his wife. Richard brings Jen to his secluded vacation home located in the middle of the desert to spend time with her before his annual hunting trips with his friends, Stan and Dimitri. When his friends arrive a day earlier, it seems that all Richard's lies about divorcing his wife come out and disappoints Jen. 

When Richard is away, Stan tries to get Jen to have sex with him. When she denies him, he rapes her while Dimitri does nothing when he comes into the room during the act. When Richard returns, instead of defending Jen, he offers Jen cash to forget about the incident. Jen gets angry and demands to be sent home before threatens that she will make their relationship public. 

This annoys Richard and the duo gets into a heated argument before Jen runs off into the desert. The three men were not far behind. Jen stops at a dead-end cliff, an argument ensues again before Richard pretends to give in to Jen's demand, moves closer to her and pushes her off the cliff. Jen fells and impaled by a tree. 

The three men promise to keep shut about the incident and leaves Jen to die while continuing their hunting trip as if nothing happened. 

Jen survives the fall - gets herself down from the tree and escapes into a cave, running from the guys. There, she nurses her injuries.

The guys were surprised when they couldn't find Jen's body and split up to search for her. Jen manages to out best Dimitri and kills him during the encounter, leaving his body inside the river and taking his weapons off with her. 

Hiding in the cave, Jen nurses her injuries before sets out to hunt the rest of the two guys. 

Can an injured woman outman two experienced hunters in this cat and mouse game?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.6/ 5.0 Never underestimate a woman's wrath. And in this movie, it is amplified thousands fold when she is fighting for her life. 

I would say the plot was quite straightforward but the action throughout the movie made the movie very intense.  

Cast: 4.5/ 5.0 Job well done by all - believable acts!

Will I watch it again: I did and it was not disappointing.  

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.
