Trivia

Halle Berry and Daniel Craig appeared in the James Bond film franchise but never together. Berry starred as Jinx in Pierce Brosnan's final Bond movie 'Die Another Day' (2002) after which Craig took over as Bond starting with 'Casino Royale' (2006). In the past, Berry has apparently said that she would love to return as Jinx in another Bond movie potentially with Craig. She has allegedly said that she would like to do it so much, she would do the role for free. See more »

Goofs

Millie Dunbar drive a wasted Volvo 760 estate . It is very hard to believe, what a car debuted in 1985, can be in such condition in 1991. Also, it is probably too expensive for main character, even if car was made in 1985. See more »

Decent
17 November 2017 | by palovyperSee all my reviews

An occasionally decent and thrilling film centered on Halle Berry as an altruistic foster mother. She gets tangled up in the violence and riots in Los Angeles, following the verdict in the Rodney King trial in 1991. "Kings" leaves an impression but despite its burning subject – racism and the abuse of power – it trivializes the seriousness of its own central theme. Also, within the context of the serious subject matter, the forced inclusions of distracting heterosexual romance make it a laughable affair, leaving you with a rather banal impression overall.
