“The Woman King marks a ceasefire between two long-warring foes: Action and acting,” praises The New York Post, while The Guardian describes it as “a sturdy, rousing piece of studio entertainment, that makes both the new feel old and the old feel new.”

“Thrilling and enrapturing, emotionally beautiful and spiritual buoyant,” applauds RogerEbert.com. “The Woman King isn’t just an uplifting battle cry. It’s the movie that director Gina Prince-Bythewood has been building toward throughout her entire career.”

Finally, BBC vows that “The Woman King leans toward fantasy in its heroic moments, but is rooted in truth about war, brutality and freedom. It is a splashy popcorn movie with a social conscience.
