Trivia

Shot Caller is not the only movie released in 2017 in which Nicolaj Coster-Waldau played an American convict. The other film is Small Crimes. See more »

Goofs

Before his capture towards the end, Money internally conceals a capsule containing a razor. Given that following his arrest he would still have had to go through a trial and processing, it's hard to believe that he could have successfully concealed this for the weeks or months this would have taken.

25 July 2017 | by Perry BeeSee all my reviews

Best film of 2017 so far! Great story, acted superbly and hard as nails story wise. If you like a great crime prison film look no further.

Not going to ramble on just watch the film if you like a solid prison crime film.

10 out of 10 for me, hands down best film of 2017 so far, hope I have typed enough text to get this review posted.

10 out of 10!
