The Woman King

The Woman King ★★★★

I am incredibly partial to a grand historical epic, particularly ones filmed with an immense power such as The Woman King. This is a bruising spectacle with vivid and pulsating action sequences, elevated to even greater heights when compared with the indistinct CGI horrors presented by most big studio franchises, even if the picture would have been better served with a 15 (R) rating. While its genre's tropes may be overfamiliar, the film's perspective is completely refreshing, and Viola Davis' imposing performance is truly magnetic. Definitely one to catch on the big screen.
