Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even with warts and all, "Joe the King" is a very worthwhile drama."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"An excellent piece of entertainment. The cast is undeniably brilliant."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"An uncompromising but wonderful film that reinforces the saying 'Never judge a person until you've walked in their shoes.'"
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"a deeply sad picture of mistreated youth, told with considerable skill, and blessedly shorn of sentimentality"
‑ Arthur Lazere,
"A very tough, very real film, anchored by the memorable work of the two leads."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Unfortunately, Whaley opts to take the sentimental route, providing easy, crowd-pleasing answers to the serious questions he raises."
‑ Ethan Alter, Film Journal International
