A FEW GOOD KIDS is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
The humor of the cast along with great production brings the story to life in A Few Good Kids. The film is a combination of animation and live action. The details are great, with sparks of lightening and other intricate animations that capture your attention. The story is interesting but feels rushed at the end which makes the ending feel lackluster.

A Few Good Kids is a Hungarian short film subtitles in English. The young boys play town hero while trying not to let their friendship fall apart.

The film is greatly enhanced by humor and the likeability of the characters. One shortcoming of the story development is the pacing, because the ending feels rushed. The camera work is well executed. One shot that impressed me is the transition from standard to animation when Felix puts on his mask. The costumes are terrific, especially when the boys don their superhero costumes. They often forget pieces of the costumes, which is clumsy but lovable. The location takes place in a quiet Hungarian rural town. The rural area aids the story because they lack witnesses. The background music compliments the film rather well. When the boys are in action there is a fun comic-style special effect that helps create the mood during climactic moments. Each individual boy becomes a lovable character as they film develops. Between taking creative play too seriously and examining their poorly handmade costumes, the boys become authentic. My favorite part is definitely the costumes!

The moral of the story is that friends can impact on one's mental health and well-being. The film promotes creative and imaginative play while also encouraging empathy.

I give A Few Good Kids 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 16. Reviewed by Stephanie O., KIDS FIRST! Juror.
