When the hangman has Christy strung up to the fan, he is holding the fan switch in his right hand. Two camera cuts later, it's hanging down on the wall. Next cut it's back in his hand. Again, it's out of his hand for a second time. Finally when he gets shot it's in his hand, and he turns it on before running away. See more »

I want to see a movie made by professionals, not this.
26 November 2017 | by thejoudblitzSee all my reviews

In this film you will find exceptionally bad acting. Even the two heavy-weight names of Hollywood, Pacino and Urban can only do so much with the terrible script. Like in other flicks similar to this one, the makers probably meant to give a realistic edge to their storytelling, by having half the people stutter, filming the car chase like a YouTube video, or having the actors stare into nothing with a thoughtful (dumb) expression on their faces.

Whoever gave the director/editor/writer of "Hangman" money for this abomination, next time give that money to me please, I promise not to flush it down the toilet.

Two extra stars for Al and Karl, I love you guys.
