[7.75/10] Kingdom (2019)

Kingdom (2019)

Quick Review: Not only it wins big points for originality, being the first Chinese epic made in Japanese, but "Kingdom" mixes history and fantasy by recreating the legendary union of Warring States in ancient China in a modern 'manga' style done with JP flair, but what this spectacular romp impresses the most with is the edgy choreography, samurai-like frenetic swordplay, and overall hectic editing of its cool, hard-hitting action, which compensates for the overacting and some slight script issues.

It sounds like a great mix to me!

Alex, it was just as original as it sounds. Great mix, indeed.
