The Villainess ★★

Some experts choreographed action, but the use of POV shots and some poor editing choices ruined a lot of it for me, and some of the most original moments were really fleeting (looking at you, bike-chase-swordfight that John Wick ripped off). 

Structurally a mess as well, as soon as the domestic undercover life is introduced, it feels like an entirely different film has started. Just needlessly convoluted, and not particularly engaging.
