Atom User Reviews for The Woman King
If we still bought DVDs I’d buy it on DVD just to have it on my shelf.
The Dahomey kingdom were horrific slavers. Why make a movie that celebrates them?
Viola Davis & the entire cast delivered...ESPECIALLY the WOMEN! Brava ladies, brava!
Historically it’s inaccurate which can be uncomfortable to view. As a film though, the acting was great and the cinematography was pretty well done. There were 1 or 2 instances of hard cuts that took me out of the experience. I really wish this wasn’t PG-13 because the fighting choreography suffers while trying to balance war and “cool”. There are some graphic things but it feels like a consolation for the boring fight sequences (at times). The soundtrack was very mediocre, there’s no leitmotif that allows this film to stand on its own. The story is also kind of messy as it Jumps around from plot point to plot point which can be jarring. The pacing at first is great but then it starts to drag with it’s non-romance/romance subplot. I had a hard time really enjoying myself towards the end and again with the historical context it feels fake. I don’t hate the movie , if anything I think it’s rather okay. Viola Davis and the cast did a great job with the script, no doubt about it.
What a Great Great all-around movie. So many themes and layers to movie that'll have many interpreting it differently. Can't say enough about the job Viola Davis did!!! #Oscar!!!

Best movie of the year , A must see took me by surprise!
Black panther worthy
Go see the movie! They address what the slavery aspect so move on from that. The cast is beautiful. Don't not see it because it's showing the other/ugly side of things. I could be a softy but tears were dropped at time lol. Go see the film y'all
this is how movies should be made
Great movie, I recommend everyone see this movie
It was such an amazing movie. It was so inspiration and insightful. Viola Davis and the cast outdid themselves with this one.
BLACK PANTHER & THE WOMAN KING 🤌🏾🍷
I thinks it’s important for others to see this movie because of it’s history!
What a great history , it make me cried but it was worth it
Excellent is an understatement!
What a great inspiration! Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish!
I’m grateful I saw this film
Best cast amazing story
I really loved this movie , well acted so much powerful scenes. Overall incredible movie!
The film is exactly what you need it to be: An exciting and emotionally true spectacle that required a heck of a fight to simply exist.
Complications of history aside, The Woman King is Black Panther minus the vibranium and with more women warriors, an empowerment tale fueled by kickassery, with battle scenes, ear-splitting ululated war cries and sword fights.
