I watched it last night and found it entertaining enough.
The plot is predictable, but developed correctly.
Cast is good obv, at times distractingly handsome.
Set design was the most interesting aspect, cause I assume they had to study historical evidences and elaborate on them, but I haven't had the chance yet to hear about their work.
As a viewer anyway it was the set that was supposed to differenciate this story from many similar ones...
Greetings from Cassita.
Any historical fiction is going to have its inaccuracies. The Woman King, a movie that is, in many ways, a pleasure to watch, depicts the Dahomean female fighters as powerful warriors, a (historically correct!) image that, in the era of Black Lives Matter, speaks positively to Black women who, all over the globe, have been fighting racism and white supremacy. But portraying Dahomey’s rulers and soldiers as pioneers of Pan-Africanism, who fought to end the inhumane slave trade, misleads audiences who might know little of African history and sells short the descendants of enslaved Africans who remained in West African soil or who were forcibly sent to the Americas. As one Agodjie from the Mahi country says in the film, she chose to be “hunter, not prey.” But, unlike their rulers, most African men and women were left with no choice, during the era of the Atlantic slave trade.
