Stylishly done yet didn't hold my attention
9 March 2017 | by cheroldSee all my reviews

Cocked, a failed pilot for a series about a gun-making family, starts off great, with a high-energy, stylishly filmed sequence at a gun show. Right away there's some nefarious action and some tension between hothead Jason Lee and his father, and I thought, this will be lots of fun.

And yet, as the series progressed I found myself never quite as engaged as I would hope. After a super start, the show just started to look like any other soap opera about a business dynasty, and by the end all the flashiness and given way to something pretty ordinary.

It wasn't bad, but if the series had been picked up, I wouldn't have bothered watching.
