REVIEW: Channing Tatum Keeps The Son of No One From Being Totally Orphaned

movieline
12 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Sometimes there are one or two or three things in a movie that seem wholly implausible: For example, characters who, in 2011, don't use or even appear to own cell phones. Depending on the movie -- and the necessity of cell phones to the story -- you might find that one little glitch unforgivable or you might look the other way. But what if a movie has so many glitches, so many careless oversights, that looking the other way only brings on whiplash?

Son of No One, The

Rock! Shock! Pop!

  • Excerpt: What do you a call a movie with a pretty impressive ensemble cast (Ray Liotta, Al Pacino, a serious Tracy Morgan, Channing Tatum, Katie Holmes and Juliette Binoche) where you have absolutely no concern for any of the characters?

The Son of No One (Blu-ray)

24 February 2012
  • Summary: This is the third director-star collaboration between Montiel and Tatum (after A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints and Fighting ), so this movie is absolutely worth watching if you’re interested in checking out the Bizarro Burton/Depp, Nolan/Bale, Scorcese/DiCaprio. If you’re a normal person, however, feel free to skip this crime drama that corrals a decent cast and introduces some interesting ideas, but squanders both.

The Son of No One Review

22 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Son of No One paints a grim picture of post 9/11 NYPD. The lockers are littered with graffiti, they’re run down, dimly lit, and everyone speaks with hard F-bombs. Never mind the general disrespect, since Son of No One portrays them as idiots. It’s hard to imagine there’s any credibility in these images when street cops put two street brawlers together in the back of the same squad car, and uncuffed.

The Son of No One Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
8 February 2012
  • Conclusion: The Son of No One tells a good story that's not quite ready for primetime. Almost everything is in place -- there's a good cast, including a Channing Tatum who finally shows some legitimate acting chops, and fine photography -- yet the story is missing the glue to hold it all together, the greater purpose to make audiences care, and the even the greater purpose to truly make it seem like the characters care.

The Son of No One

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: 'The Son of No One' brings nothing new to the cop drama genre. It's generic and predictable. The source of all the conflict and tension is blatantly obvious to everyone watching the film, but not its central character, who ignorantly avoids it, but we, the audience, aren't that dumb. I haven't seen a movie this utterly forgettable in a long time. The video quality is better than you'd expect from an indie BD-25 – especially considering how out-of-focus the film is.

The Son Of No One

AV Club
3 November 2011
  • Excerpt: In the Queensboro projects in 1986, a pre-adolescent boy accidentally murders two junkies in close succession. Both are clear-cut self-defense cases—one rushes at him in a bugged-out rage, the other threatens him and kicks his dog in the head—and even if they weren’t, no court would throw the book at him.

Son of No One

  • Conclusion: Parhaimmillaankin ankeasta lapsuudesta kärsinyt poliisi Jonathan White (entinen malli ja mainosnäyttelijä Channing Tatum ) on rakentanut itselleen kohtuullisen elämän. Siirto tämän isän vanhaan piiriin tuo kuitenkin mukanaan kaikuja menneisyydestä joiden oli tarkoitus pysyä unohdettuina. Kuka kaivelee vanhoja, ja kuka siitä lopulta kärsii eniten? Poliisivoimien korruptio on aina antoisa aihe, koska etenkin Yhdysvalloissa riittää mistä ammentaa.
