2017 ( USA ) ( Crime, Drama, Thriller )
DIRECTOR: Ric Roman Waugh
STARRING: Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Omari Hardwick, Lake Bell
Shot Caller is a stylish and cleverly constructed thriller about the distinctly non-rehabilitating impact of prison, with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau doing an excellent job of playing an American yuppie who’s sent to jail after a fatal accident. Many years later, Jacob – now nicknamed Money – emerges as a terrifyingly violent and thoroughly muscled-up gang member. Just to put his allegiances beyond doubt, he has the words ‘White Pride’ tattooed across his shoulders.
How could this possibly happen to a man who once had a good job, a luxurious home and a beautiful, loving wife?
Shot Caller is captivating and emotionally gritty with an outstanding raw and commanding performance by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.
