    If you are after violence, strong feelings and corruption... this is perfect!
    Good plot and character development, good action scenes, feelings, adrenaline... I watched it by chance thinking it was a spin-off of Fury Road :D little I imagined when polish started coming out of the speakers... great acting, great directing, and a deep sad acknowledgement that this is how crime works, with the system of violence kept in place by how the flow of money reaches the top. I suppose the police officer even knows the government is corrupted and he is playing a rigged game, and accepts to live a life half-way between committed and delusional. It's kind of in-between Fight Club and Nobody; more violence but not as good a plot as the first, less violence but more interesting story than the second.

    As for the ending though, I kind of wished they didnt choose to make it so bleak. Also, hard to understand why the hooligan from the other football team would escalate so much.

    "Fight Club" reminding Polish film is confusing and too long
    As "Furioza" (2021 release from Poland; 139 min.) opens, a gang of thugs is causing mayhem on a train. We then go to the XOXO dance club, where we are introduced to a female undercover cop who is investigation a drug ring. Along the way she gets a gash wound on her head... At this point we are 10 min into the film.

    Couple of comments: let me state upfront that I had never heard of this film, and only found out about it when Netflix "suggested" it to me (based on my viewing habits). When I realized that this was a foreign film, I did not hesitate. As it turned out, this film was quite the mixed bag for me. The plot is frankly confusing and I found it challenging to keep track as to who is who, with a no-names large cast to boot. Then there is the strange mix of "Fight Club" reminding themes vs. A typical drug crime type film. In the end, it's more a film about Polish macho types eager and needing to release a lot of pent-up anger and feelings. But with a running time of 2 hrs and 20 minutes, the movie is too long for its own good. Last but not least, please note that the movie's title "Furioza" refers to the name of the fight club which the cops are tracking, and should not be confused with/is not related to the Charlize Theron character Furiosa in the "Mad Max: Fury Road" movie.

    "Furioza" recently started streaming on Netflix. If you liked the classic 1999 film "Fight Club" (yes, almost a quarter century ago!), I'd readily suggest you check this out, keeping expectations modest, and draw your own conclusion.

    Honestly a good film
    Actors are good, the story is good, you really want to watch it until it ends ( 2 hrs +), Realistic film with the violence that goes with these characters, what can I say more, you won't be dissapointed.
