Cynthia Erivo not only acts but sings as Harriet Tubman. And it’s not a musical. It’s a weird choice but it’s at least memorable. I regret to report that HARRIET is a disappointing biopic. The story is very paint-by-numbers. It’s a shame because I was looking forward to seeing this. The pacing is off, the first act is very slow. We see a great deal of Tubman’s early life but race through the most famous and most interesting aspects of her life. There’s this feud she has with her original owners which never becomes engaging. If there’s anything commendable about it, the acting isn’t terrible and Erivo’s got the chops to be a leading lady. It’s not incompetent but feels too safe after movies like 12 Years a Slave.

Harriet Tubman is a historical figures who has been owed a biopic for some time now. Sadly, she's had her important life legacy as a savior and freedom fighter caked over with Oscar-bait mundaneness.
