Critic Reviews for The White King
The White King never quite fulfils its initial promise as a dystopian young-adult adventure set in a future police state.
The White King is a respectable first feature, but one that would have benefitted from refinement and nuance - a good few moves behind the best films in the genre.
The White King is an impressive adaptation which is believable whilst wearing a cloak of mystery.
The only elements of The White King that prevent it from being an unmitigated failure are a striking visual aesthetic and solid production values. However, these do not prevent Alex Helfrecht and Jorg Tittel's venture being one to miss.
Audience Reviews for The White King
We see a new world order that brings its society back to the soil, damning technology, applauding the simple life. This totalitarian world parallels Hitler's pride, where the community stands for hours in grocery lines, eat bread and watered soup if they don't have connections with the higher ups, and wear their only 2 or 3 outfits if they haven't contributed to the recent revolution. Twelve-year-old Djata, who tells the story, gets a glimpse of a technically advanced wealthy world full of crowded highways and gleaming skyscrapers, where food and wealth are in abundance. I find it interesting where the technical world is put in a higher light. What a switch!
