Critic Reviews of "Kicks"Globe and MailSeptember 23, 2016
Tipping, who also co-wrote the polished script, captures this unique mix of adolescent anxiety, urban decay and societal friction in a remarkably confident fashion ...Chicago ReaderSeptember 22, 2016
The motif of a faceless, imaginary spaceman following the boy around is overly precious, but what does work is Tipping's focus on sensitive boys hardening in reaction to their father figures (or lack thereof).Detroit NewsSeptember 16, 2016
Tipping throws all sorts of tricks at the screen, most of which don't work.Washington PostSeptember 15, 2016
Tipping's admittedly artful style is relatively ambiguous, focusing mostly on cheap visceral thrills, to the point where it's impossible to glean what he thinks about the depths to which Brandon will go.RogerEbert.comSeptember 09, 2016
Kicks is not without its flaws, but even the flaws show Tipping's willingness to take risks, to go for the big gesture and to go for it honestly.New York TimesSeptember 08, 2016
The characters have enough dimension to avoid appearing to be symbols of a social tragedy, and the movie's relative gentleness makes the harsher realities of Brandon's world all the more distressing.Shadow and ActApril 12, 2017
Still, what Tipping masters perfectly in the film is the constant ebb and flow of humor, and darkness, that runs through the narrative that is inner city boyhood.Reel Talk OnlineMarch 22, 2017
It's about manhood, growing up in the hood, and the inner struggles you don't see played out on the news... It's not a perfect movie by any means, but I'm interested to see what Tipping does next.Laramie Movie ScopeFebruary 07, 2017
A dangerous quest for a stolen pair of shoes becomes an odyssey through ravaged California minority neighborhoods where drugs are omnipresent and violence is never far away. It is a tale of lost innocence, absent fathers and rites of passage.Common Sense MediaOctober 03, 2016
Poignant, mature indie drama about a teen and his sneakers.Under the RadarSeptember 29, 2016
Kicks is tense, horrifying and hypnotic: a stunning premiere from a new filmmaking talent to follow.
