User Reviews

Really nothing special, but somewhat entertaining.

-Cocked (2015) TV movie review: -Cocked follows a father and son who own a failing gun company, and need the help of their son/brother to fix their promotional adds, but they have to fix their family relationship before they can work together.

-Only a few things make this movie not completely forgettable, so I will try to think of those by the end.

-I didn't really care for the story, and it had some trouble focusing.

-The pace was fine. It's only an hour.

-The acting is not great. It has some guy, some older guy, and Earl from My Name Is Earl, who all do fine, but there is nothing special.

-The characters are all somewhat easy to root for and like when they start to work things out, but until then you don't really like any of them.

-The music was odd. Very Coen Brothers, which worked.

-Some of the editing was very Wes Anderson, which I liked.

-I knew there were a few things! Cocked is nothing special and nothing new, but it is entertaining, somewhat. It might be worth watching on Netflix, if you want to see Earl shoot large automatic pistols through bottles as fruit in slow motion set to classical music. That was a cool scene.

-It is rated-R for some language, not a lot, some nudity, not a lot, but enough, and some drug use.
