      Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald The dialogue is generic -- the formal kind constructed to suit all periods -- but the actors give it all the authenticity it needs, clearly delighted by the ebullience of their characters. Rated: 4/5 Oct 28, 2022 Full Review Jordan Hoffman AV Club It is a film designed to inspire audiences and elicit cheers and, by and large, it succeeds. Oct 19, 2022 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Thankfully, all flimsiness in the screenplay is overcome by the director, Gina Prince-Bythewood, and her committed cast, who transform a familiar dramatic milieu (Mulan meets Gladiator meets Wonder Woman) into thrilling, amphetamine-rush cinema. Rated: 4/5 Oct 7, 2022 Full Review Christian Eulinberg InSession Film The Woman King achieves cinematic royalty with its extremely skillful, well-crafted, and purposeful picture that tells a narrative of empowerment and humanity. It’s well-crafted from start to finish, with Davis shining in the starring role. Sep 26, 2023 Full Review Sarah Vincent Cambridge Day writer Dana Stevens, story contributor Maria Bello – more known for her acting (“A History of Violence”) – and Prince-Bythewood continue an emerging cinematic trend of alternate, redemptive histories that bend toward utopianism Aug 16, 2023 Full Review Rick Bentley KGET-TV (Bakersfield, CA) Davis elevates this standard story with the emotion and dire she brings to her performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review ole I enjoyed this movie very much until I learned how much "truth" was stripped from this movie that was "inspired by true events".
