HELL HATH NO FURY (2021) Reviews of female-focused action war movie



Hell Hath No Fury is a 2021 action war film about a woman who single-handedly takes on the might of the three male armies: the German war machine, the French resistance, and a wayward band of US infantrymen.

Directed by Jesse V. Johnson (Debt Collectors; The Mercenary; Triple Threat; The Butcher, 2009; ) from a screenplay co-written by Katharine Lee McEwan and Romain Serir. Produced by Erken Ialgashev (executive producer).

The American-French-Kazakhstani-Belarusian co-production stars Nina Bergman, Daniel Bernhardt, Josef Cannon, Charles Fathy, Luke LaFontaine and Louis Mandylor.


Branded a traitor by her countrymen, French national Marie DuJardin (Nina Bergman) is rescued by American soldiers on one condition: to survive, she must lead them to a cache of gold hunted by the Nazis, the French resistance, and the Americans alike…



“In terms of flaws, I’d say that it takes a little while before the action kicks in but it needs to give us time to get to know the characters and their motivations […] Overall, Hell Hath No Fury may not be as action-packed as Avengement or Triple Threat but Nina Bergman and Daniel Bernhardt especially stand out and there are plentiful vicious R rated kills to keep action fans happy.” The Action Elite

Hell Hath No Fury is exactly the type of movie I would expect from Jesse V. Johnson. If you are a fan, this is an easy recommendation. I do think the movie is a bit too predictable, but it is still a lot of fun. Daniel Bernhardt steals every scene he is in, and he only gets better with age.” Bulletproof Action

“A little rough around the edges, maybe not to everyone’s taste, and perhaps not as straight-up fun as some of his other more crowd-pleasing films (The Debt Collector, Avengement), Hell Hath No Fury is nevertheless another great notch on Johnson’s action belt, a surprisingly dark drama, and a great showcase for lead Bergman.” Far East Films

“Johnson is at his best when he directs his own scripts, he understands the action film and can write with its needs in mind. The script for Hell Hath No Fury isn’t sure if it wants to be an action film, a thriller or a character study. The result is a compromised film with enough good points to be worth watching but far from what it could have been.” Voices from the Balcony


Well Go Entertainment USA will release Hell Hath No Fury theatrically on November 5 and on Digital on November 9, 2021.
