Kill Boksoon (2023) Movie:- synopsis

Single Mother Kill Bok Soon (Jeon Do-yeon) is one of the world’s deadliest assassins thanks to her 100% success rate on contract killings.

The pair hold mutual respect for each other, but Kill Bok Soon understands that a moment’s notice could take everything away from her. Just before Kill Bok Soon is due to renew her contract, loyalties are put to the test when Bok Soon is involved in a kill-or-be-killed incident.

Kill Boksoon (2023) Movie:- a brief review

Well, this Korean movie is an entertaining action flick. I liked the elaborate fight sequences shot in the film. Also, the smiling and expressive face of the actor Jeon Do-yeon reminded us of the ‘smiling assassin’ term. However, it seems that some people might find, an over two hours long movie lengthy, but I am completely fine with it, as I have grown up watching on an average 2 to 3 hours long cinemas in India. And the film’s ending after a couple of hours was more than satisfactory for us.

This Koren movie shines in the age wherein Hollywood action flicks like John Wick are ruling the box office.

If you are an action buff, then you can watch this movie for its terrific fight sequences only.

I always love strong and dynamic female lead characters in movies and series; so, give it to me, anytime, anyplace and anywhere. And I will certainly enjoy it.

Jeon Do-yeon (Boksoon) shows Hwang Jung-min the best way to end a fight | Kill Boksoon

In this duel scene, Boksoon has no time for dramatic hand-to-hand combat with a Japanese yakuza; because as a single mom, she has to grab groceries before the store closes, for family (including her daughter) meals.
