Sometimes when you take a chance on a movie with almost zero reviews it pays off in a big way! That's how I feel about Crown and Anchor. The trials and tribulations of this dysfunctional family had my full attention from the get go. Pop shows up near the end and what a flippn' winner this man is. No car chases, sexy women & shoot em ups throughout, rather a gripping experience into the lives and the ramifications of rough people with bad behavior. If you like thriller-suspense-dramas, you'll probably really enjoy this movie.
