If you like stories with morals that haven’t been re-written in the last 12 years, The Green Knight should entertain. The result feels more entertaining and less tainted by modernity
There are no performances that will resonate, as the constantly shifting variables give everyone a form of schizophrenia to the point of mild annoyance.
…this is mostly an excuse to show some very capable killer ladies strut their stuff on screen for in just under two hours. This is more than enough for me.
While I would not call this film a classic by any means, it certainly does entertain more than most films that premiere on Netflix.
This is the right story for someone of Johansson’s ability, stature and sense of self.
If you make it through the agonizing first hour, you’ll have something on between The Thing and Starship Troopers.
