The Woman King is a good story, with great acting and battle scenes to enjoy!!!
Real Rating: 4 Agojie Warriors
What I Like:
-The fighting scenes are very grounded and epic, I enjoyed the tense moments while the Agojie Warriors are fighting their hearts out
-The acting was tremendous and authentic, especially Viola Davis as General Nanisca, her leadership and influence was intense, seeing how respected she was in the Dahomey Kingdom is great, plus her character development added some good depth to why she is this way, and why she makes a good leader not only for her army, but her kingdom
The So So:
-At first it may be heavy handed about woman empowerment, but once the story starts to unravel, it all makes sense, and added to the high stakes in this story
-It is historically inaccurate, but who cares, this story was really good to care about what is accurate or not
What I Didn’t Like:
-Being nitpicky, but I wish this was an R-rated film, I believe this should’ve been more bloodier and grittier, and it would’ve made this story a lot more epic
This is a good watch. Not only for the good message it brings, but just to watch the battles with high tense emotion is something to marvel at. The acting maes this film really good, especially Viola Davis. When you know what is at stakes, it can be something fulfilling emotionally as it starts to unravel. I said it once, and I will say it again, it is a good watch!!!
