Critic Reviews for Viy (Forbidden Empire)

All Critics (4)

There are some thrilling sequences, and the monsters are great, especially for low-budget CGI.

Under the Radar

Forbidden Empire strives so hard to be a fantastical epic, but muddied storytelling can't be saved by the horrors of Viy.

We Got This Covered

The visuals are enough of a reason to give it a watch, but the film as a whole becomes a mostly forgettable mash of entertaining effects and dull interactions.

Film School Rejects

FORBIDDEN EMPIRE is wild and colorful and exciting and funny; it's neck-deep in witches and monsters and magic and devilry. It's a bit of a mess, but it's the sort of mess more movies should make of themselves.

Audience Reviews for Viy (Forbidden Empire)

Great special effects. It was a bit strange. If it was a bit better flowing it would have been epic. However, I found myself wondering what was going on more times than not. Good ending, tied everything together, but it too late at that point.
