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

The Beast: These cops think the more they lock us down and isolate us it strips us from our power, they even think we are a dying breed, they're dead fucking wrong.

Pleasantly surprised.
11 August 2017 | by MrSelfPaidSee all my reviews

It has been a long time since I wrote a review but this movie deserves my time and attention. I definitely did not expect this movie to touch me in the way that it did.

The Pros:- -It is so well edited that I had to recheck the run time of the movie when it ended. Two hours flew past like the wind.

-The acting is great.

-The plot will reel you in and never let go. This is simple story telling at it's best.

-The dialogue will never feel boring and the prison scenes are shot in a way that will leave you in awe.

-The score is one of the best I've heard in recent memory. Reminds me of Sicario, another great film. Some people said it could have been better but I disagree. The score had me wishing I can write music that good for movies. It had a certain twist to it, sounds of flutes or sounds of Arabian music undertones.

  • The directing? All hail Ric Roman Waugh. I'm going to search for some of his other movies. If half are as half as good as half of this film, I might pass out with glee.


The Cons: There are non I can think of. I wrote this review a few days after seeing the film so that I can write a honest review absent attachment to the film.

Go see it.
