      1. There’s that racially tinged word “woke”. I guess a movie about powerful black women is somehow a blow to the “anti-woke” agenda. My god it’s a movie it doesn’t have to be political.

      2. Every time I read the title, I get reminded of Cecily Strong’s SNL skit – “Don’t man-terrupt me while I’m woma-king a point” LOL

    1. So in Sony making their $125 million back in everything then Woman King was truly a flop for Sony then. How is making $19 million dollars at the boxoffice great thing over all. If Marvel moive came out at the same week woman king would got killed that the boxoffice.

      1. Actually, it is based on real historical events. The Dahomey Kingdom and its female army, the Amazons, was real as well as the Kingdom described as black slave traders. What is inaccurate in the movie is the Kingdom being anti-slavery. It was well-known as one of the most brutal slave-trading tribes in African history. This movie depicts female empowerment that didn’t exist in that time period depicted – the 1820s.

    2. It flopped the fact that it got a 99% Audience Score on RT speaks more to how fake Rotten Tomatoes is as a bought & paid for review site. I am not going to be guilted into seeing a trash film if I don’t want to

      1. LMAO, unless the movie is one racism will allow you to like, in that case everyone at Rotten Tomatoes is a genius I’m sure. Nice try smoothbrain

  1. Hopefully after the Civil War we will have a day of the rope and hang these useless porch monkeys and their children. 1488.

  2. Viola Davis pushing this as a Historical Drama is as accurate as “The Man in the High Castle” was a true story and if you don’t take your family to see it you’re clearly racist

  3. Its opening weekend it went head-to-head with no other film. It had more theaters than every other film. It had more showtimes than other films at some theaters and is being protected by rotten tomatoes and review-fluffed by other outlets that are obviously in bed with Sony. Just wait until ‘Avatar’ re-releases this weekend and watch the second week drop off. That will be more epic than this film
