Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Walau stars as a man who must fight for his life and this life of his family after he is incarcerated and forced to join a prison gang to survive.
This was a great flic one of the best so far as far as these movies go.
The animal in man
This movie exemplifies realistic, basal survival. We are always just two degrees away from the animal in man. Some are already there. Watch what happens to society niceties when food runs out, environments collapse and infrastructure crumbles. This is purely an adapt or die movie, and well wrought.
Not what I expected
I was surprised
I was not expecting to enjoy this movie and i really liked it. Worth a rental.
Prison is not for me
By 1 chick's opinion
I don't know if that movie mirrored actual events in correctional facilities. But it certainly made it clear prison isn't something you can endure without additional consequence. The story boiled down to choices, was gritty and moving. Sometimes the main character's accent appeared. But the acting was great.
By Royal rock star
Ending was kind of shocking..... loved the film
Shot Caller is on the "Money"
This is the first review I've written concerning a movie, very good movie. From start to finish Shot Caller holds your attention. Great cast, great story, raises the bar on prisoner/gangster movies.
Watch it, very worth it!
Came out of nowhere
I didn't think much of this movie before watching it. It was very good. I really enjoyed this. Acting was great all around. Very gritty and real.
A for effort
C- for delivery
I don't know how to describe it. Nor do I understand how this movie received so many 5 star reviews.
You're either going to love it or you won't. Me, well I feel kind of mixed about it. It wasn't horrible..but it definitely wasn't epic like many are preaching it to be either.
Rarely am I let down by reviews but I feel the 5 star hype that I filled myself with has let me down with this movie. The best part of this move was the trailer. Honestly
As someone else described, this movie is very monotone with a few interesting scenes.
I'm still struggling how to describe it. It's almost like when you hear rave reviews about a 5 star restaurant and when your meal arrives it wasn't what you expected. But you don't want to just get up and walk out. You're already here and spent the money so you may as well finish it but you probably won't come back.
I love gangster movies but this one was just odd.
