  • Critic Reviews of "Life Of A King"
    January 17, 2014

    Solid performances-especially from star Cuba Gooding Jr.-elevate the film slightly above the familiar trappings of its genre.

    Washington Post
    January 16, 2014

    An effective, even heartwarming, tale of one man's commitment to teaching that playing by the rules is more important than winning.

    Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
    January 16, 2014

    Gooding gives a strong performance, but viewers might be better off seeking out the...documentary Brooklyn Castle, which focuses on the championship chess team at an inner-city New York middle school.

    Village Voice
    January 14, 2014

    Even if the story is faithful to the way the events played out in real life - and the official description is that the picture is a "dramatic retelling" - Life of a King couldn't feel more formulaic.

    Common Sense Media
    February 04, 2014

    Sentimental, formulaic tale of an inspiring chess teacher.
    January 31, 2014

    The result has a predictably wholesome and formulaic structure, yet is redeemed through solid performances from Gooding and the youngsters, and a heartfelt sincerity that rings true.

    The Dissolve
    January 31, 2014

    Though ostensibly based on a true story, the film feels like it has been finessed, exaggerated, and beaten into formulaic fiction. It's a twisted parody of high school and mentoring whose achievements are entirely accidental.

    Baret News
    January 19, 2014

    A Sunday school-style parable which makes very effective use of chess mastery as a metaphor for negotiating the perilous gauntlet of possible ghetto pitfalls.

    Screen International
    January 17, 2014

    Unquestionably well-meaning, this tale of an ex-con who teaches some inner-city teens about discipline through chess treads incredibly familiar emotional terrain.

    Slant Magazine
    January 14, 2014

    Any potential flights of invention or creativity are subordinate to the plain and emphatic delivery of life lessons.

    Tribune News Service
    January 14, 2014

    Sentimental, somewhat predictable feel-good tale of saving lost kids through chess. Very well-acted.
