Themes

Reception

The Kid Who Would Be King received mixed reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 50% based on 160 reviews, with an average rating of 5.8/10. The website’s critical consensus reads, “A likeable cast and certain visual thrills can’t quite make up for The Kid Who Would Be King’s diffuse storytelling and distinctly unmagical middle act.” On Metacritic, the film has a weighted average score of 54 out of 100, based on 31 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews”.

Critics praised the performances of the cast, particularly those of lead actors Ashbourne Serkis and Patrick Stewart. However, they were divided on director Joe Cornish’s handling of the source material; some felt he had successfully updated the Arthurian legend for a modern audience, while others felt he had strayed too far from it. Many also noted similarities between The Kid Who Would Be King and other films such as E.T., Star Wars, Harry Potter and Bridge to Terabithia.

Film adaptation

The Kid is a 1921 American silent comedy-drama film directed by Charles Chaplin. The film stars Chaplin as The Tramp, an endearing vagrant who becomes the unlikely guardian of an orphaned boy, played by Jackie Coogan. This was Chaplin’s first feature-length film as both director and star.

The story begins when the Tramp finds a wallet containing $10,000 belonging to Edna Purviance’s character. While attempting to return it, he is mistaken for a pickpocket and arrested. Following his release from jail, he discovers that the child she had been caring for has been placed in an orphanage. Moved by the boy’s plight, the Tramp sets out to find him and ends up becoming his unofficial guardian.

While The Kid was initially met with mixed reviews, it has since gone on to be considered one of Chaplin’s finest works and one of the greatest films ever made. It was also a box office success, grossing over $3 million dollars at the time of its release (equivalent to over $40 million dollars today).

In 1994, The Kid was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.
