Movie Info

Millie is a hardworking, tough and protective Los Angeles single mother with an affection for homeless children. Her neighbor Obie is the local loose cannon -- and the only white man -- in an area largely inhabited by African-Americans, Latinos and Koreans. With racial tensions running high, Millie and Obie appear to be unlikely allies. But following the acquittal of four of the officers accused of beating Rodney King, the two of them must navigate the gathering chaos in the city.

Critic Reviews for Kings

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (33)

  • 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.

    April 28, 2018 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    April 27, 2018 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Kings is clueless about its subject matter.

    April 27, 2018 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • It seems like a missed opportunity to dramatize the lives of real people caught up in the aftermath of the violence.

    April 26, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    April 26, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Frustrating and tone-deaf, the movie remembers the L.A. riots as an absurd comedy.

    April 26, 2018 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

    Overwhelming! Great performances and a view into a life like I'm never exposed to. It helped me have a bit of perspective.
