Critic Reviews for The Kid
Director Nick Moran obviously feels strongly about the material but fails to create a consistent tone.
Nick Moran -- like Casey Affleck, an actor-turned-director -- marshals his relentlessly grim material unflinchingly, and Rupert Friend, as the adult Kevin, is engaging and convincing in a complex role.
If you have tears, prepare to shed them for some other tale of woe.
Lewis' story is unquestionably horrific but by forcing it into the mould of a triumph-over-adversity heart-warmer, all of the raw, nasty edges have been smoothed off to leave a sickly-sweet wad of gloop.
This is an inspiring story, but it's badly told. Best read the book instead.
