| Good depiction of history
The movie could have been better, but it's educational value is a ten. The women really were called Amazons. They were the Amazons of Dahomey and actually fought the french foreign legion in the early 1900's. Most were kidnapped or turned in to the king by fathers or husbands who were not satisfied with their behavior. They used machetes and guns provided by white foreigners. They were fierce warriors trained to serve the king and at one time were over 4000 strong. They were not allowed to marry or have children.

If you are Black, the movie is uncomfortable to watch. To imagine how your ancestors , in my case, made it to America and survived long enough to give me life.

This was a dark period in the history of civilization. When the old sage says the whip will reign for a long time, little did he know it would last for over 400 years, while the remnants of these actions continue to amplify even today.

This movie is a must watch in schools across the world. Slavery continues to exist in the world, and very little is being done to eradicate the practice.
