Editorial Reviews

When Taz (Simon Rex) sells his soul to the devil to become Miami's biggest drug lord, he gets all the money, women and power the game has to offer. But when the devil comes to collect, he raises the stakes by bringing forth a demon in the image of Taz's late step-father (Ving Rhames) to collect what is owed. Now Taz must try to outwit the most evil force known to God and man, and escape his deadly deal with the devil.

Customer Reviews

I liked the story line, but the acting was lacking.
Tom Brown
It as funny, but somewhat serious, but the comedy did not knock you in the head, it just came at you when you least expected it to.
Christopher
Ving is the split personality of another actor (no clue what his name was) who kills people.

A little indie that was competently directed by Ryan Combs. With mostly solid talent in front of the camera King of the Avenue is a low budget, eerie, violent, and dreamy little work of art. The Story is not a new one, but the direction, Faustian story, and characterizations are all top notch. The story is of a young boy who was adopted by his mother's boyfriend, a notorious gangster, after she died. He grew up in an environment of violence and feels it is his destiny to continue the legacy of his father. It echos familiar movies such as Boys in the hood, or Menace to Society, but has a unique take on the formula. The budget is the real restriction on this movie because you get the feeling Combs wanted it to be more, just had to deal with what he got...he chooses his shots well, and the editing helps to create what is missing in terms of budget.
Without a doubt though, this movie is carried by the actors. Simon Rex is fun to watch and hits the spot with his portrayal of a white urban male trying to live up to modern urban masculine mythology and manifesting his own destiny through terror and violence with no regard of it's over all impact. Ving Rames in a dual role took me awhile to warm up to, but he delivers. Acted in an unassuming and brutal manner he brings the nightmares behind the dreams of success to a sudden reality. Esai Morales makes a quick cameo as the prince of darkness, he does well but lack of budget shows in the overall product. Erick Nathan as Cal was the hip break out unknown for me. His delivery is sharp and believable, a major support for an overall solid cast.
An overall indictment of greed and blind determination this film comes at you in expected ways and then turns you on your head. A bloody story of ambition, greed, love, lust, betrayal, and the other asskickeries of movie making. King of the Avenue is a smooth and sexy, yet violent and dreadful urban fairytale that should not be missed.

I at first thought that oh another kill or be killed drug dealer film well I was half right this movie is about battles amoungst dealers but with a twist. Vin Rhames plays the dead father of the lead character who comes back from the dead at Satans request as a demon,and brings death and destruction to those who are in the game to gain leadership of the trade. The film is okay a little above adverage what makes this movie a four star is Vin Rhames performance as the demon at times he comes off as eerie well acted.

I saw this film called Dirty Kopz a few years back when someone let me borrow the tape. I thought that it was serious, low-budget and not made well - but it turned out to be an underground classic to me! It as funny, but somewhat serious, but the comedy did not knock you in the head, it just came at you when you least expected it to.

With that, I was looking for more! I assume that the guy who made Dirty Kopz (Ryan Combs) also made this one too. Seems like it the way this plays out except that the budget is higher (by low budget standards). This is about a guy who wants to be the "king of the avenue" at any cost and makes a deal with the devil. I will not give it away, but in the end the film has a good messege after all of the carnage. I like the way the comedy comes into play with the film. It never says that it is a comedy, but it slaps you in the face when it comes! This is funnier than most comedies! It is not as funy as Dirty Kopz, but it is similar.

I reccomend that everyone pick this up if nothing else then to see it. These are wild movies but you don't walk away disappointed - unless you were expecting Lawrence of Arabia!

I liked the story line, but the acting was lacking. I did enjoy watching Ving though. He propped up the movie.

When they mixed the supernatural with a crime movie, you sometimes get great results such as "Crow" which added the right about of sex, nudity, violence, music, and weird. Sometimes you don't get good results such as this movie. Simon Rex plays Taz, a wannbe-drug king. His dad, or step-dad, is played by the tough guy Ving Rhames, who starts out the movie as dead, comes to life in a flashback, then really comes back to life as a demon. Taz, in order to save his family from being murdered, makes a deal with the devil, (who would BTW already would have his soul) to become the new drug king of Miami. Ving as the demon goes around to eliminate the competition, although as it turns out Taz doesn't have the stomach for the job.

Blood, killing, brief sex scenes, brief nudity and not enough of anything worth while.

Not a good supernatural film, not a good crime film. The movie has us identify with a drug king who is both a bad guy and a coward. It just doesn't work well.

Hey is this all we have to watch, violence, murder, deceit, rape, I guess we call this entertainment, What happen to the basic movie, love, trust, honor. Loving your neighbor, shovel there walk maybe cut the grass for them. Seeing an elderly person carrying bag's down the street and given her a hand. Maybe a movie about God. I even find superman to be refreshing, He stands for justice although fictional we as a people one day felt that way.
