    Shan Nicholson's film consists of oral histories from the now-reformed gangsters. As such, it can't help but sound a bit embellished, what with all the street monikers and seemingly glorified titles.

    "Rubble Kings" might have been great. As it is, the film is a one-sided, but satisfying tribute to an alternatively terrifying and beguiling city that we can only revisit in movies.

    New York Times

    A fascinating, valuable work of social, music and New York history, a celebration of a peaceful revolution by those who helped birth it.

    June 17, 2015

    Cramming a lot of anecdotes, urban lore and frenzied movement into a mere 71 minutes, Nicholson's docu imperceptibly builds to an unexpected, revelatory climax.

    An entertaining doc vividly chronicles a troubled era.

    Despite its sketchiness, this offers a vivid insight into the rejuvenation of a decaying city through fury, activism and music.

    Real life is a messy, bloody, haphazard affair, punctuated by soaring highs and crushing lows. Bless the documentarian who strives to make his work the same.

    "Rubble Kings" is a documentary that could easily used another hour, and it wouldn't be felt, if the assured editing in this picture is any indication.

    Film Journal International

    As fascinating and well-told as it is, Rubble Kings suffers from a garbled chronology that pushes the narrative of its two main interview subjects.
