SFF 2017 review: Mrs K

Mrs K is a martial-arts action thriller in the vein of Tarantino following the titular Mrs. K as she attempts to protect her daughter and husband from enemies of her past.

Do I hear Kill Bill? Not exactly, but it’s pretty damn close.

From the concept to the martial arts to the western score, Mrs K breathes Kill Bill, and for that, I can’t claim that it’s objectively great but I did enjoy it quite a bit.

Mrs K does not hold back in the gore department. It’s not constantly vicious but occasionally you’ll get a scene like one in the beginning where a man’s head is crushed in a vice. You don’t see the whole ordeal but you see enough to know exactly what’s happening.

Altogether, thanks partially to its Tarantino-copycat vibe, it feels a bit cheesy, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t enjoyable. It certainly has some entertaining moments and the story is mostly engaging. Just a shame it was largely predictable.
