  • Some may find the end result a trifle predictable and too audience-pleasing in its final uplift, but for others that will be its unique selling point.

  • Adults might find this overly sentimental... though it's ideal viewing for kids -- informative, visually impressive, and generous in its worldview.

  • Director Andrew Mudge's expansive film combines death, romance, poverty, mysticism, philosophy and friendship while holding steadfast to its realism; it sticks with you.

  • Most significantly, Kingdom's heartfelt performances and director Mudge's competent direction will keep you engaged through the duration.

  • The resolution proves heartfelt and touching, and if the script sometimes waxes too mystical for its own good, the film's ultimately so genuine it's hard to resist.
