🍿 The Woman King (2022) ★★★★
The best movie in theatres I’ve seen this year. It had an engaging story, great acting, and visual effects.
To me it seemed like it was promoted as an action film with a serious plot. But there is plenty of drama, character development and actually quite a bit of humour—particularly by Izogie (Lashana Lynch), who takes my pick for best character.
I don’t particularly enjoy empty action/war films so I’m happy this turned out to be something with plenty of substance!
