Critic Consensus: Young Ahmed doesn't represent the Dardennes brothers' most developed work, but solid acting and a socially conscious story help compensate for its flaws.

Critic Reviews for Young Ahmed (Le jeune Ahmed)
It's a hugely flawed effort, turning many of the directors' strengths into liabilities, but it's also more thoughtful and complex than the insta-condemnations that were rained down on the basis of its premise alone.
"Young Ahmed" is suspenseful and economical, with a clear sense of what's at stake, but something crucial - perhaps a deeper insight into the character or the contradictions that ensnare him - is missing.
This won't be the Belgian brothers' third - it feels too slight for that - but it's subtly provocative and powerfully acted by the young newcomer Idir Ben Addi.
It's reasonably gripping on a scene-by-scene level, and about as starkly unsentimental as any of the Dardennes' lean, urgent moral thrillers.
