My whole family loved this film; however, my ten-yr-old thought the villains were a bit scary and she spent a good deal of the movie with her face covered in my shoulder. But otherwise it was fantastic.

My son &I enjoyed the movie. It had a positive message which the writers was trying to convey. I did feel that it was probably a little bit scary for the younger kids with the demons and the violence

I took my 9 year old sister to see this movie. She really liked it; some of the scenes scared her but it didn't bother her too much. I thought it was a creative movie. A little slow at times but otherwise it was very good.

[An] earnest, entertaining and imaginative old-meets-new adventure.

The action is lively and quick-paced, and then suddenly over — at which point the film gets to hammer down some of its more wholesome messages.

The Kid Who Would Be King is 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 — like “Labyrinth,” “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial,” “The NeverEnding Story” and “Legend” — where young people go on character-building adventures.
