Critic Reviews for The King Is Dead!

All Critics (6) | Fresh (6)

  • The screenplay comes with a wealth of comical gags and observations about suburban life that many audiences should identify with.

    October 17, 2013 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • If this film had a more propulsive plot, veered into Straw Dogs territory and retained its dark laughs, I imagine we would be talking about an Australian classic.

    September 27, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The King is Dead!, while not as brilliant as Bad Boy Bubby or Alexandra's Project, shares with those films a unique and perverse vision of Australian suburbia ... De Heer's always bold, and here he's bold again. The Independent King is certainly not dead.

    July 24, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The King is Dead has some great comic asides, and the finale paints Max and Therese into a genuinely dangerous and entertaining corner.

    July 16, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • The King is Dead! is a deliciously dark genre mash-up, coy and explorative but tight and insular, sprayed with wry laughs and a genuinely foreboding undertone.

    July 16, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Black comedies rarely come as carefully measured or as full-blooded as this marvellously engaging lark, which is essentially a revenge fantasy for anyone who has ever suffered the prolonged trauma of living with a bad neighbour.
