Critic Reviews for Kingdom of Shadows

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (4)

  • A hollow experience, emotionally stifled by its plotless nature and lack of any visual edge.

    November 20, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Ruiz never manages to weave the multiple narratives into a complex but cohesive big picture as Steven Soderbergh did with the 2000 feature film "Traffic."

    November 20, 2015 | Full Review…
  • As a rendering of Mexico's agonized convulsions, "Kingdom of Shadows" is unforgettable.

    November 19, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Though at times too splintered by its various points of interest, Bernardo Ruiz's up-close-and-personal documentary is nonetheless harrowing in its details.

  • Providing a chilling non-fiction parallel to the recent Sicario, Kingdom of Shadows is both heartbreaking and disturbing.

    November 19, 2015 | Full Review…
  • The visible numbness and empty stares of the doc's three subjects painfully evoke years of being gripped by the war on drugs.

  • Kingdom of Shadows may have worked better as a direct interview format because, with three stories taking up most of the film, it doesn't quite come together and because of this, it lacks the kind of meaningful impact a film like this could have had.

    April 5, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Kingdom of Shadows may not have the answers to solve the problem it presents onscreen, but educating viewers is the first step.
