Vietnamese action drama among five most-watched films on Netflix this week

Vietnamese big-budget action drama “Thanh Soi” (Furies) was welcomed by international audiences, making it one of the five most-watched films on the platform worldwide.

Since being released on Netflix on March 23, "Furies" has been quite successful. According to statistics from video-on-demand tracking site FlixPatrol, "Furies" is currently fifth among the most-watched movies on Netflix this week. It is also staying firm at the top of trending movies on Netflix Vietnam.

Actress Dong Anh Quynh stars as the main character of "Furies".

Van wrote on her Facebook: "‘Furies’ has been in the top 10 of many countries and today it officially made it to the top five worldwide."

In late 2022, Ngo Thanh Van, also known as Veronica Ngo, released "Furies" to domestic theaters. The big-budget and star-studded film was released on Christmas but didn’t do well as it only grossed VND25 billion ($1.05 million) at the box office. The unexpected flop of the action film was a big shock for Van and film critics.

Releasing "Furies" on Netflix is considered Van’s attempt to save the movie, as she hopes it will reach a broader audience and restore her motivation to keep making movies. Her previous work "Hai Phuong" (Furie) was released on Netflix in 2019 and garnered great attention from global audiences.

Critics also had a positive response to the film, giving it 86% on the film review site Rotten Tomatoes. The previous movie "Furie" received a higher score on the site with 95%.

"Furies" is set in Saigon in 1988 and tells the origin story of Thanh Soi, an antagonist in "Furie," which grossed VND200 billion in 2019.
