Critic Reviews for The Kid Who Would Be King

The Kid Who Would Be King,... might be smarter that the average live-action kids' movie, but it's hamstrung by a lack of visual imagination and a generic script.

A charming story of fantasy, pop-culture references and myth-making. It's a movie with the playful camaraderie of "Goonies" and a few elements from '80s sagas where young people go on character-building adventures.

By liberating a new generation from the lore they were taught... "The Kid Who Would Be King" empowers its audience to make the world their own.

A likable enough, Amblin-esque update to the classic Arthurian legend...
