Critic Reviews for The Throne

All Critics (3)

Bolstered by some handsome production values as well as its powerhouse lead performances, the film is another fine, if over-long period drama from Lee Joon-ik

November 1, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The story is shocking enough without the excess scenes of melodramatic rage from every character.

February 23, 2016 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Based on one of Korea's most infamous incidents, The Throne is tense, enthralling and beautifully acted. I wish all history lessons were as engaging as this.
