The Son Of No One (2011)

What a depressing movie! It's a police action drama starring a bunch of great people I'm surprised to see working together: Channing Tatum, Al Pacino, Ray Liotta, and even Tracy Morgan as an all but comical figure! The one who puts on the best performance of all however is no doubt Jake Cherry, the kid known as Milk, a white guy in a black neighborhood who - alongside his black buddy Vinny, partakes in a story parallel to that of Channing Tatum´s police officer career, one of murder, and a tougher childhood than most people would know. Only at the end do the two story's connect and make sense.

It's a sad story, with not a lot of action but plenty of suspense; plenty of darkness and mystery. It's one of those gritty films that just... doesn't inspire at all, but leaves an impression. And I guess there's a message too. Maybe as simple as a stand against cop corruption, maybe a bit more elaborate: a stepping stone to making a better world. The ugly side of the world no one son wants to see. Well-acted; directed... but not particularly fun to watch.

 rated 3/5: not bad
