The Last Kingdom Seven Kings Must Die(Netflix) is a work that is primarily intended for those who are looking for more of this saga. It is an extension of the series that documented everything from the death of his father to the establishment of a new ruler and a tentative piece. It also does a sufficient job of establishing all of the basic characters and plot points to entice readers even if they are completely unfamiliar with the plot. Even though this final film can be a little sluggish at times during exposition and stutter when delving into the full consequences of a more complex conflict, there is still something engaging about its investigation into the corrupt nature of power. It is undeniably more bound in story concentrate yet is as yet a fitting finish to this long excursion.
Seven Kingdoms Must Die starts with the demise of Ruler Edward, to who Uhtred had distinctly not sworn faithfulness toward the finish of Season 5. Now that his son Aethelstan (Harry Gilby) has taken control, he quickly cracks down and kills anyone who stands in his way in a religious conquest. Uhtred is soon confronted with the promise he had made, which was that he would swear allegiance to Edward's son and unite the lands. Uhtred is horrified by this. He starts to worry that people who want to use Aethelstan for their own purposes are giving him bad advice. Other influential individuals are gathering in what is believed to be the lead-up to an inevitable war while all this is going on.
When Seven Kings Must Die confronts the possibility that the world's villains are those Uhtred once believed might be its salvation, it has a more haunting atmosphere. Unfortunately, the narrative gives up on trying to answer these questions and gives in to telling a more coherent story. As if they hadn't happened at all, the cascade of betrayals and scheming, which all come with increasing costs, are resolved. The seriously intriguing story heading that was sought after at first is something the story offers itself an out of as it walks towards a more customary end. Although there was unlikely to be a solely depressing conclusion, the manner in which this sequel appears to hold its ground is somewhat disappointing. To spend a large part of the experience spreading out exactly the way in which broke everything is, just to assemble every one of the pieces eventually, feels odd. As the story moves toward a final battle in which the conflict is less complicated due to previous relationships and more straightforward, everything just gets better.
Even though the movie continues to focus too much on what is once again an overly tidy conclusion to this story, with one final shot that seems out of place in the way it pulls us out of this world, the path it took to get there remains sufficiently satisfying. When everything is over, The Last Kingdom: As a fitting way to say goodbye to Uhtred of Bebbanburg and the bloody life he did everything to escape, Seven Kings Must Die is flawed but fitting.
