Shot Caller (2017, D: Waugh) S: Coster-Waldau, Bell, Bernthal



<iframe width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/QQxjyRr9k2E" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

SHOT CALLER follows the harrowing, often heart-rending journey of successful businessman Jacob Harlon (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) who is transformed into Money, a stoic, ruthless prison gangster after a DUI sends him down the rabbit hole of the American prison system. As he navigates the brutality of his new home, adapting to its violent codes of ethics and rites of passage that will ensure his survival, he slowly loses his previous identity and his relationship to his former life, including his wife and son. The grip of his new family, the prison gang, extends beyond the prison walls. Upon his release, chased by the law enforcement, threatened by his incarcerated "protectors," Money must orchestrate one last dangerous crime. All is not what it seems. The ruthless process of fulfilling his obligations also becomes his path to sacrifice, retribution and self-definition.

And oddly, Jon Bernthal is in both films.

Watched this last night and it was awesome. You're not going to feel very good after this one as it's pretty hardcore but Coster-Waldau is great and it makes me never, ever, ever want to go to prison for any stupid reason.

One of the best movies I've seen all year. Loved it. A must watch.

Made my top 10 of 2017 .Nikolaj Coster-Waldau was great in this film.

The director Ric Roman Waugh looks like he is also A stuntman.
Also liked Felon and Snitch
Directing Angel Has Fallen with Gerard Butler and Morgan Freeman for release in 2018.
This film should make it to the big screen.

I think this is available on Netflix (or Amazon Prime, can’t remember which) I’ll bump it up on my to-watch list.

Don't ignore this movie. It's pretty great.

I think a lot of people wrote it off as straight-to-video quality. But it's better than that.

It's way better. It might be my favorite movie of 2017. It's at least in my top five.

Serves as a firm lesson to not drink and drive.

Watched it tonight and dug it. Underrated movie, when looking at its RT and IMDb ratings.

I'd compare it to Sicario. In that it's a crime-drama that you can watch and take seriously. It never feels "direct to video" or like over-stylized escapism.
