it’s worth seeing princess On Star+?
A bad script and a very good and convincing performance joy king That’s what you’ll find in this feature film that’s really nothing new, but there’s a lot of fun to be had along the protagonist’s different paths away from practically impossible situations throughout the film.
if we were to evaluate princess Just for its photographic looks, its battle choreography, and the random, utterly hilarious and unexpected short scenes that unfold amidst the chaos, we can say that this is a great film.
But unfortunately, the production fails to produce a relevant narrative, and spoils its very predictable and shallow dialogue about a young woman fighting for autonomy and the fall of the patriarchy in medieval times. Can be a complete and visceral experience.
really, princess A feminist film, but without depth, limits its protagonists to extreme acts of survival against their enemies (mostly men) and influential phrases that say nothing more than obvious at the end.
that actually becomes a sin King and great artist princess Doesn’t have rich narrative material to work with As it’s worth mentioning how good their characters really would have been if the story had taken a less simplistic approach.
But, to be fair, the film improves significantly from the middle to the end, if not in its dialogues, then at least in the excitement of interest to watch the story.
Anyway, while watching The Princess till the end, it is realized that the film is not good…
If the viewer isn’t expecting much more than sword fighting, archery and a young lady banging herds of (even hundreds) male donkeys, then this movie could be the perfect entertainment for your weekend.
Now if the desire is to do something more complicated and with less clichés, then it is better to stay away from this option in Star Plus.
