A beautiful, strong-willed young royal refuses to wed the cruel sociopath to whom she is betrothed and is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With her scorned, vindictive suitor intent on taking her father’s throne, the princess must protect her family and save the kingdom.
**The Princess might not be innovative or unique, but it’s well done and a lot of fun!** While The Princess might not bring anything new to the Die Hard style action genre, well-choreographed fight sequences and a strong, committed lead in Joey King performing almost all of her stunts take this simple plot and elevate it to a solid action flick. The sword fights and martial arts had some inventive moments with fresh new techniques and finishing moves that I hadn’t seen before. The stunt work was almost to the level of John Wick, which was unexpected for a straight-to-streaming film and very appreciated. Even though the movie was very predictable, and I had seen many other films like it before, The Princess is still entertaining and is better than reviews imply. Any action fan that loves the Die Hard, Con Air, Passenger 57 type movies will enjoy The Princess’s medieval, sword fighting, fantasy spin on the genre.
