    Review: 'Son Of No One' Suggests 'I Know What You Did Last Summer' As Written By Dennis Lehane

    In the relatively ridiculous new procedural/mystery "Son of No One," Channing Tatum, as a mustachioed police officer married to Katie Holmes (and looking after an epileptic daughter), is sent taunting letters and anonymous text messages alluding to a violent incident from his past. (The movie is set way back in 2002 which is why he doesn't receive cryptic emails too. Because no one used email in 2002 apparently). You can tell how terribly we're supposed to take the threats because of all the shaky shots of Tatum flipping open his ancient cell phone, the scenes shot in sickly shades of blue and green. Except that instead of coming across as su...

    Watch: Moody Trailer for Channing Tatum Crime Drama 'The Son of No One'

    Channing Tatum has made it hard for us to love him over the years. He began his days as a dancer in a Ricky Martin video, parlayed that success into modelling for the obnoxious eugenic fashion dystopia known to the world as Abercrombie & Fitch, before bumbling into Amanda Bynes transvestite comedies and drippy Nicolas Sparks adaptations. But he’s always seemed to have more fight in him than his anonymous contemporaries (hello, Sam Worthington), a willingness to mock himself as seen in the otherwise dull Allan Loeb-scripted comedy “The Dilemma,” and to have a nose for sniffing out promising material with respectable directors – “Public Enem...

    Following An Infamous Screening At Sundance, Anchor Bay Picks Up 'Son Of No One'

    Depending on who you ask, the Sundance screening of "Son Of No One" was either an epic disaster or simply a poor movie met with the reception it deserved from the press and industry folk in attendance. While there were some early reports of an "exodus" of people throughout the screening, The Film Stage delivered what appears to be the most honest account of what happened, saying "There were intermittent walkouts leading up to this moment, but no “exodus.” In what was to be believed the ‘final’ scene of the film, Montiel employed some odd (i.e. flabbergasting) editing choices which caused laughing, head-shaking, and groaning from a variety of ...

    You Decide: 'Son Of No One' Bombed At Sundance Vs. A Projectionist Flubbed The Screening

    It's generally been a pretty positive year at Sundance with lots of buys, and positive buzz surrounding a number of films. But one film has walked away with the unfortunate honor of having one of the most contentious screenings at the festival. And no, we're not talking about "Red State."

    Watch: Trailer For 'Son Of No One' Features Cop Movie Clichés & Competing Moustaches

    We guess we'll find out for sure when the reviews start coming for the Sundance Film Festival closing entry "Son Of No One," but from the first trailer for the film it plays pretty much like every second rate cop drama -- "Pride & Glory," "Brooklyn's Finest," etc -- to come along in the last few yea...

    The Escapist & Potentially Entertaining Films Of 2011 - Part 2

    We won't lie. This is a mish-mash of leftover films. Not least anticipated, not fervently most anticipated. They are The Escapist (and umm, other films) that didn't quite fit in our other previous lists. They're a mix of indies that we're hoping to have quality performances in them and more traditional action-y, popcorn flicks that could be quality because of the directors or talent involved. You'll just have to read a little deeper to see how we feel about each. In case you missed it, here's part one.“The Cold Light of Day" - Summit - dir. Mabrouk El MechriSynopsis: A cocky young Wall Street trader is thrust into a government conspiracy whe...
