Critic Reviews for Kings
This dud recreation of the 1992 L.A. riots traps Halle Berry and Daniel Craig and a piece of momentous, civil-rights history in a crazyquilt of random action, absurdist humor, bogus romance and questionable purpose.
It's possible to appreciate the film for recognizing both the horror and the absurdity in its subjects...and for playing exclusively in those extreme registers, yet still come to the conclusion that it's is all bark, no bite.
It seems like a missed opportunity to dramatize the lives of real people caught up in the aftermath of the violence.
The English-language debut from the brilliant talent behind best foreign film picture nominee Mustang is a terribly uneven, borderline absurdist jumble that undercuts its own message again and again.
