Critic Reviews for Kings

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

Eschewing poeticism for an empty sense of prefab empathy, "Kings" is so determined to be hopeful that it forgets to be honest.

For all its honorable intentions to address sensitive issues that still sting, Kings is an unconvincing tonal patchwork.

An unmediated jumble.

Deniz Gamze Ergüven's nightmarishly terrible Kings has a long career ahead of it as an object lesson in how not to exploit current events for festival acclaim.

October 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The most shameful mistake is the bizarre choice to cross-cut back and forth between a violent teenage tragedy and a slapstick comedy scene involving two movie stars MacGyvering their way out of police handcuffs in their underwear.

October 13, 2017 | Rating: D- | Full Review…

Starring Halle Berry and Daniel Craig, Deniz Gamze Ergüven's sophomore film is a tonal disaster, jerking from shrill melodrama to screwball comedy and always at the most inappropriate of moments.
