Oscar winner Viola Davis means business in the ferocious historical action epic, The Woman King.
Davis plays General Nanisca, leader of the armies of the African Kingdom of Dahomey. The movie adapts a series of remarkable real-life events as it laces a history of colonialism and racism with scenes of blistering warfare. John Boyega and Lashana Lynch feature among the strong cast.
The movie screened in advance last night for Cineworld Unlimited members, and selected screenings of the film were presented in spectacular and immersive IMAX. Scroll down to discover a handful of responses that will surely convince you to watch The Woman King.
Fully engrossed in this. The sounds & visuals made you feel part of the ‘tribe’ - outstanding performances, although not sure on the casting of John Boyega even though he does a decent job.#IMAX screen definitely the way to experience this movie— Cheltenham Cinematic (@CheltCinematic) September 20, 2022
It was a very fascinating historical movie, very shocking though. Viola Davis is Incredible as Nanisca. The story is very well written, whole cast and crew did a great job with the movie. Definitely give the movie a watch! Overall score: 8.5/10! Grade: A-! Well Done Everyone!! 😁— James Acraman (@JamesAcraman) September 20, 2022
Everything about #TheWomanKing worked for me. The cast excelled in every scene, with Davis, Atim and Lynch giving powerful performances. Camera work to singing, there wasn’t anything that didn’t help build the story and atmosphere, a must see when it’s on general release.— Emma @ the Movies (@EmmaAtTheMovies) September 20, 2022
