Critic Reviews for Viy (Forbidden Empire)

All Critics (4)

There are some thrilling sequences, and the monsters are great, especially for low-budget CGI.

Forbidden Empire strives so hard to be a fantastical epic, but muddied storytelling can't be saved by the horrors of Viy.

The visuals are enough of a reason to give it a watch, but the film as a whole becomes a mostly forgettable mash of entertaining effects and dull interactions.

May 25, 2015 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

FORBIDDEN EMPIRE is wild and colorful and exciting and funny; it's neck-deep in witches and monsters and magic and devilry. It's a bit of a mess, but it's the sort of mess more movies should make of themselves.
