Critic Reviews of "King Jack"RogerEbert.comJune 10, 2016
Lacking personality or insight, "King Jack" is a ho-hum tale of young aggression-been there, bruised that.Los Angeles TimesJune 09, 2016
Thanks to a strongly rooted lead performance by Charlie Plummer as a 15-year-old small-town kid who's well on his way to a stint in juvenile detention, "King Jack" still strikes a resonant chord.New York TimesJune 09, 2016
For everyone who ever had a close call as an adolescent and kept it from the grown-ups, "King Jack" will hit you where you live.AV ClubJune 09, 2016
First-time writer-director Felix Thompson demonstrates good instincts for two of King Jack's standard three acts.indieWireJune 07, 2016
Writer-director Felix Thompson's first film is a sensitive and self-possessed debut that clocks in at 76 minutes and doesn't waste a single one of them.Village VoiceJune 07, 2016
It's a tribute to Thompson's humane sensitivity to character detail that its concluding jolt of affirmation feels fully, inspirationally earned.MovieMailDecember 31, 2016
[Director Thompson] has a particular ally in Plummer, a bashed-up presence more compelling than a dozen stage-school brats, displaying a fortitude you warm to even as you're watching all cockiness being kicked from his form.Common Sense MediaAugust 16, 2016
Dark coming-of-age movie has intense, sadistic bullying.Movie MezzanineJuly 12, 2016
Though Thompson clearly has a facility with young actors, as nearly every performance in the film is very good, it's not enough to save the film from mediocre clichés and poor dialogue baked into the script.The PlaylistJune 18, 2016
Might not have the freshest ingredients in the indie kitchen, but it still knows how to stir up something with a kick.
