  • "Kingdom" bounces along with high energy and nice sprinklings of dry humor for the vast majority of its lengthy running time.

  • Director Shinsuke Sato's film may lack nuance, but fans of martial spectacles will have an enjoyable if exhausting time.

  • The film acquits itself honorably, even if its ultimate message is disquieting.

  • More than colorful enough to excite genre fans who like a dash of history with their swordplay.

  • Kingdom is a decent action adventure that just takes a while to really get going. The performances aren't totally satisfying and the story isn't exactly hard to follow, but it does feel like it's trying to be more convoluted than it needs to be.

    Aug 30, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There's just so much palpable fun and excitement dripping from every scene. Kingdom's live-action film is so well done there will most likely be a huge new wave of audiences seeking out Yasuhisa Hara's original work.
