A Movie “Kingdom” 10/24/20

October 24, 2020

I usually don’t like an action – fantasy movies, but I really enjoyed this one. It is an adaptation of “Kingdom” manga series of the same name which is set during China’s “Warring States” period, and the film is created by Yasuhisa Hara. The film portrays the life of “Li Xin”, a general of Qin, from his childhood as an orphan through his military career during the ancient China. It is a colorful tale and has a great action throughout the movie with a wonderful cast, including Kento Yamazaki, Ryo Yoshizawa, Masami Nagasawa, Kanna Hashimoto. It is an entertainment during the current remote life.
