Wrath

We havent seen a really good revenge movie since Ai, I was waiting for something great to come along and Wrath is it. It was written and directed by Sam Hendi, the same person who brought us Gone. Unlike Gone which holds its plot elements close to its chest, Wrath goes straight for the jugular.

Hyette Duffy plays a scorned lover who has kidnapped the woman (Tracy Villiers) who she believes seduced her partner and forced him to cheat. The action builds steam as it segways from a low-key monologue to full out verbal assault as Hyette tears into her rival and we start to see that maybe, just maybe this woman has a few more problems than a cheating spouse.

This film skirts the line between a character sketch and torture porn, and it chooses the right side, side-stepping violence and replacing it with a carefully crafted look at Hyettes rapid descent into madness.

Once again, Sam leaves us with answered questions but much like in Gone its better that way.

Ratings

Style 3.5

Its fast paced without being frenzied, a stunningly well made interpretation of the classic interrogation scene. (Pacing 4.5)

Storytelling 4.5

Polish 4

Hyette is incredibly good in her role as the scorned lover, its a performance worth watching even if there wasnt any movie around it. (Watchability 5)

Its the acting and script that brings this film up, the plot elements have been seen a thousand times before but very rarely executed this well. (Novelty 3.5)

Overall Rating: 4.16 out of 5 stars
