Goofs

When Det. Archer took the watch off the 2nd victim at the Coroner's office and handed it to the Coroner. He asked the Coroner to dust it for prints. That would be the job of the Police forensics at the crime scene. They also would have bagged it and entered it into evidence way before the Coroner even got the body. See more »

I want to see a movie made by professionals, not this.
26 November 2017 | by See 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.
