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.

Quotes

Bad title, excellent movie
26 July 2017 | by BongoJusticeSee all my reviews

The title is the only thing that's not quite there with this movie - it suggests a sort of b-grade thriller. But what this movie actually delivers is a taut, razor-sharp story about how someone's life can go horribly wrong.

This is the only thing I've seen NCW in apart from Game Of Thrones and I was blown away by his range - he's in full-on acting mode here, entirely believable, and hard as nails.

One of the best movies of 2017.
