Plot

General Nanisca is the leader of the Agojie group’s female warriors. She sets the Dahomean women free from the Oyo Empire, who abducted those women. After this, Ghezo, the King of Dahomey, wanted to fight with Oyo Empire. Following this, Nanisca started training the next generation of warriors to safeguard the kingdom. Nawi is a strong woman who denies marrying men, as she thinks would beat her. Nawi joins Nanisca’s team in protecting the country. What happened next? What is the part of Nawi in her Kingdom forms the rest of the story.

Star Performance

Viola Davis had done a fantastic job as General Nanisca. Her body language, expressions through her eyes, and dialogue delivery are amazing. Her chemistry with Thuso Mbedu is excellent and both of them lived the characters. John Boyega is impressive in the King role.

Analysis

Set in the early 19th Century, the film showcases the power of women and their patriotism. The script is well-written, and the screenplay is engaging. There is no single lag moment, and all the stars fit well in their respective characters. The VFX work is excellent, and the sound design is impressive. The characters are penned well, and the team picked the right stars and assigned them with proper characters. A few scenes dealing with the Kings and their life partners could’ve been avoided, as those scenes didn’t have any significant impact on the story’s flow.

What’s There?

  • Engaging screenplay and neat execution
  • Performances are much impressive

What’s Not There?

  • Except for a couple of scenes, nothing had a negative point

Verdict

With an excellent script and screenplay, the director managed to pull out the best performances from the stars, especially from Viola. This is your cup of tea if you love watching historical stories with impressive action sequences!
