Critic Reviews for The King

All Critics (6)

The sound and fury negates subtlety or cause, but this whirlwind drama is a telling primer on South Korean white collar rituals.

Despite its ambitious scope, The King is longer than it needs to be -- the middle section, especially, would benefit from some judicious editing. But the acting is strong and the archetypes solid.

a slick, snarky, breathless ride through hidden corridors of power

February 2, 2017 | Full Review…

Slick, gripping, provocative and enormously entertaining.

January 31, 2017 | Rating: 8.4/10 | Full Review…

With parallels to real-life scandals and offhanded references to moments like the June Democracy Movement... The King succeeds as a political drama invested in the constantly changing dynamics of power.

January 26, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

[A] cheap, gaudy imitation.
