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?
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.
