Tulsa King: Sylvester Stallone is intensely powerful as Dwight Manfredi – Review

Tulsa King is all set to screen-on with punchlines and a lot of fun

Tulsa King seems to be a big break for Stallone as a comeback to the industry. He gets to try something new here like his serious but crackup role as a mobster — in the series where he finishes serving 25 years in prison and lands in Tulsa, Okla to walk on his journey.

The series is created by Taylor Sheridan and Terence Winter in production of Paramount+ and it already seems remarkable in performance and for many other reasons.

As said in our previous article about “Tulsa King’s” special preview which was held on October 29, 2022, in theaters by AMC partnered with MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, the only two released episodes were enough to say that it felt like to keep going on, continue to binge-watch all the episodes without the wait.

Stallone as Dwight Manfredi serves in jail for his local godfather, and when he is out all he wishes for is a flick of gratitude. With the godfather’s son in charge, he is tasked with going to Tulsa. Right in the city of Oklahoma, Dwight befriends a young taxi driver and starts to arrange the disorganised crime in Tulsa into organizing form starting with a weed dispensary. But why weed? You see, Dwight had stayed away 25 years from the modern world we have now, which is very much different from all those years back. Using Uber, Credit Cards, people today, have their personalities, and ways of pronouncing things.

As per Variety, the monologue “what’s the deal with pronouns” is something Stallone might actually say himself, which is what makes him oddly watchable in this show. By creating the world of “Tulsa King”, Sheridan and Winter have to build a character Sly can’t help but get right.

Tulsa King could be or will be a good show, fortunately. With high expectations from the public, it is hard to say with just two episodes that the series is a hit or just okay.

“Tulsa King” will officially premiere starting on Nov. 13 with new episodes rolling out weekly on Paramount+.
