Woman King (2022)

WOMAN KING is the true story of the female warriors of African kingdom of Dahomey. Lead by a fierce warrior, played by Viola Davis, they could out fight any other army they fought against.

I’ve been sitting on my thoughts of WOMAN KING for a while now. It’s not that there is anything wrong with the film, there absolutely isn’t, it’s a very good historical action epic. I had a blast watching it both times that I saw the film.  My reluctance was purely from the stand point that I was not sure why people were falling all over themselves in regard to the Oscars. I’m not sure why the film was in the Oscar talks beyond  Viola Davis in the lead.

As I said this is a kick ass historical action film. It’s a film that easily fits in with some of the best action films out there. It’s a classic historical epic done in modern day. I just don’t think it should have been in the Oscar mix.

That said, what a blast.
