When I saw a horrible action bore two years ago Old Guard: Immortals, I thought I might start avoiding the work of directors Gina Prince-Bythewood. But it looks like he won’t give me much of a chance to do that. Her ambitious new piece is now rushing to American cinemas Warrior woman, in which Oscar winner Viola Davis switches into action mode and brings us the story of a female war unit that ruthlessly protected the Kingdom of Dahomey in the early 19th century. However, was Bythewood able to properly compose the ambitious material combining epic war scenes with important themes? According to foreign critics, she couldn’t have done better. The Warrior became one of the best-rated films of the year!
Just a few days ago, the Warrior could boast of 100% positive reactions, now the perfect number has dropped to 98%, but it can still boast a very strong rating of 8.0. According to the reviews, Warrior is a breathtaking, powerful and unexpectedly complex ride that exquisitely combines audience popcorn with grateful war scenes and serious drama with a story that manages to squeeze emotions in a big way. In addition, the film is said to sell the theme of black history, culture and the position of women very well, and Bythewood combines all these elements in an absolutely sovereign way.
This time she is unexpectedly confident in action and battle scenes and can be just as strong and captivating in dramatic passages. It is no wonder then that according to almost everyone she made her best film. Viola Davis, who is said to be the best role of her career, receives even greater praise. In the action position she is absolutely believable and in the rest she shows all her strengths and plays to the absolute maximum. In short, Warrior is said to be a great, spectacular film with the right amount of social overlap, which has completely blown away most people so far. So we’ll see if we can be counted among them.
