      Charm City Kings Reviews

      TV scribe Sherman Payne's script is as predictable as they come...

      Full Review | Original Score: D | Aug 30, 2021

      The natural style and authentic locations add a great deal of excitement and purity to 'Charm City Kings.' I just wish the story weren't so predictable.

      Full Review | Apr 22, 2021

      With its challenging performances, elaborate dirt-biking stunts, evocative cinematography, and unique setting for a coming-of-age narrative, it's one of the great gems of 2020.

      Charm City Kings has a lot of heart underpinning the flashy trappings of the bike riders' subculture.

      The performances, especially by Winston and Mill, are tremendous

      The title refers to a nickname for Baltimore.

      A fantastic performance from Jahi Di'Allo Winston in this Baltimore based film.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5 | Oct 30, 2020

      Powerful drama highlights the power of choices; violence.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Oct 24, 2020

      The spirit of old-fashioned coming-of-age fare roars in director Angel Manuel Soto's sun-dappled Charm City Kings.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Oct 14, 2020

      Soto's winning mix of polished style and gritty authenticity, along with Winston's ace screen presence, go a long way toward making Charm City Kings' familiar story stick with us.

      Full Review | Oct 13, 2020

      It may be a familiar coming-of-age story, but it wears its heart on its sleeve with captivating breakout performances to boot.

      Full Review | Original Score: 4/5 | Oct 13, 2020

      Charm City Kings unearths its timeless ruminations with precision and verve, throttling forward a narrative that is equally impactful and enthralling.

      Full Review | Oct 13, 2020

      A really engaging story worth watching for the performances.

      Full Review | Oct 10, 2020

      Di'Allo turns in a strong enough performance for me to want to root for him to stay out of trouble.

      Full Review | Original Score: 7/10 | Oct 10, 2020

      Ultimately, Charm City Kings passes the Baltimore smell test, which is saying a lot.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Oct 10, 2020

      [F]or all the energy both in front of and behind the camera, this thing rides the clutch way too much. It's not necessarily that it's disengaged; it's that it's so rocky.

      Even if the ending feels forced, the richly textured screenplay captures the moral dilemma of its adolescent protagonist while also effectively confronting the broader ethical questions surrounding a lifestyle it could have easily glorified.

      Angel Manuel Soto is a director to keep an eye on. He's sharp, passionate, skilled and fearless.

      Full Review | Oct 8, 2020

      Soto and screenwriter Sherman Payne ... have crafted a convincing tale ... of a kid who isn't sure what wants -- but knows he wants it right now.

      Full Review | Original Score: 3/4 | Oct 8, 2020

      In its view of a world where kids make their own fun and also, sometimes, their own bad choices, it rings true.

      Do you think we mischaracterized a critic's review?
