"It's a powerful tale of human frailty", "fiercely watchable and passionately performed drama ...with barnstorming performances from Lakeith Stanfield and Daniel Kaluuya"
★★★★ - Empire
"Buoyed by a trio of standout performances, this freshly resonant thriller brings urgent life to one of the Black Panther movement's greatest tragedies. Shaka King is a force to be reckoned with."
