The Woman King’s debuted to a really high Rotten Tomatoes score, but a closer look at its numbers reveal just how positive its reception actually is.
Why The Woman King Rotten Tomatoes Score is So Good
The Woman King has received mostly glowing reviews, giving it one of the year’s best Rotten Tomatoes scores.
2022 has seen a number of well reviewed movies, but the strength and consistency of The Woman King’s reviews set it apart from many other theatrical releases this year.
Set in the mid-1820s, The Woman King tells the story of an army of female warriors trained by General Nanisca (Viola Davis) to defend the West African nation of Dahomey.
As an epic war film loosely based on historical events and starring women of color, The Woman King has a lot going for it on paper
but for a September release in an already complicated post-COVID theatrical environment, the positive reviews and high Rotten Tomatoes score are an especially great sign.
