Critic Reviews for Kicked in the Head

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

Kicked in the Head is one of those movies where you wish the story was about the supporting characters.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Kicked in the Head is a giggly bender of a movie, staggering like a rummy with a bellyful of hootch through its paranoid landscape.

October 24, 2019 | Full Review…

A sophomore jinx, this is a disappointing follow up to Matthew Harris's striking debut, Rhythm Thief; the acting, though, is good.

December 20, 2006 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Nothing seemed to really work well, yet all the supporting characters seemed to be pleasant and trying their best to make things work.
