Movie Info

Growing up in West Baltimore, teenage Mouse (JAHI DI'ALLO WINSTON, Queen & Slim, Proud Mary, The Upside) feels the fierce pull of different forces: Between notorious ex-con Blax (Grammy-nominated best-selling artist MEEK MILL) and concerned Detective Rivers (WILLIAM CATLETT, TV's "Black Lightning"), and between the straight path set for Mouse by his concerned mother (TEYONAH PARRIS, If Beale Street Could Talk, Dear White People, TV's "Empire") and the dangers of gang life, which took his brother's life. The one truth Mouse knows is that he loves the power, artistry, and energy of "The Ride" -- the exhilarating motorized-dirt-bike scene that is both a pastime and passion on the streets of Baltimore. During one eventful summer, Mouse has to steer his way through two father figures, a first girlfriend, and the illegal but irresistible thrill of stunt-riding that makes him and his friends feel like CHARM CITY KINGS.

  • Charm City Kings is an incredible triumph from a slew of fresh talent, including director Soto and his leads.

    February 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Unable to harness the story's potential, the filmmakers instead deliver a mostly canned movie that flatlines 20 minutes before it comes to an end.

    January 31, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Guided by Angel Manuel Soto's slick direction and a breakthrough performance from Jahi Di'Allo Winston, the movie works overtime to energize real-world struggles with the thrill of street life.

  • A cool premise with a plug-and-play story.

    March 5, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • The film asks whether you believe Black boys are often given second chances, and regardless your answer, Charm City Kings presents a charming yet raw setting to help question the context of their decisions.
