Described as a traitor by her compatriots, French national Marie DuJardin is rescued by American soldiers on one condition: she must lead them to a cache of gold.

Mulder's Review

Is it still possible to offer an original war film when most of them seem to follow the same model and give way to a neat reconstruction and imposing battle scenes? The screenwriters Romain Serir and Katharine Lee McEwan seem to be able to answer yes and specially to propose a story in the manner of Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs with colorful characters and a unique location (in this case a cemetery).  Hell hath no fury is the story of a woman who, alone, faces the power of the German war machine, the French resistance and a band of American infantrymen. 

The scenario of Hell hath no fury is thus conducive to many twists and turns and places the actress and singer Nina Bergman (Doom: Annihilation (2019), in the role of a woman, Marie DuJardin, who will have to face many opposing clans and try to survive a day that looks perilous for her.  Indeed, treated as a traitor by her compatriots, the Frenchwoman Marie DuJardin is saved by American soldiers on one condition: to survive, she must lead them to a cache of gold, before the Nazis return to claim her.

Between shootings, multiple betrayals and perfectly executed twists and turns, Hell hath no fury is certainly a low-budget war film, but one that is sufficiently masterful to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. The  director Jesse V Johnson (Triple Threat (2019), Avengement (2019), The Debt Collector 1&2 (2019,2020) proves to be very efficient at staging action scenes. A former stuntman and stunt coordinator on many American blockbusters (Cutthroat Island (1995), Planet of the Apes (2001), Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), War of the Worlds (2005)..), he has specialized in low-budget action movies and his prolific collaboration with actor Scott Adkins have given life to effective films.

Director Jesse V. Johnson also understood the importance of an interesting cast and we find in front of the camera Nina Bergman (Doom: Annihilation, Assassin X, video game Call of Duty: Black Ops 4), Daniel Bernhardt (The Matrix Reloaded, John Wick, Atomic Blonde) n Mouis Mandylor (The Debt Collector, My Big Fat Greek Wedding I and II), Timothy V. Murphy (Snowpiercer, Sons of Anarchy) , Dominiquie Vandenberg , a former special forces soldier of the French Foreign Legion and technician in the fight against weapons (Triple Threat, The Mercenary, Martin Scorsese's Gangs of New York) and Josef Cannon (Helsing University). Actors who have a real presence on the screen and whose confrontation is the highlight of this film.

Hell hath no fury also gives Nina Bergman her first big screen role and it must be said that she brings a lot to this film both her fragility and her strong personality. Scheduled to be released in the United States on November 5th
