Kernel Rating (out of 5):
Length: 90 minutes MPAA Rating: R
Age Appropriate for: 17+. Police brutality, sex abuse, drug use, murder and, of course, cursing. Typical to a “Law and Order: SVU” episode but more graphic and vulgar.
Channing Tatum, Al Pacino and Tracy Morgan do their best to try and make ‘The Son of No One’ seem like a believable police thriller. Alas! They fail.
By Roxana Hadadi
Channing Tatum tries so hard to be a grownup in “The Son of No One”: he holds his own in scenes with Al Pacino and Ray Liotta, he has chemistry with the young actress playing his daughter, and he even grows a mustache. But while Tatum makes his role as a conflicted cop work, the film’s poorness — from script to plot development — can’t match his pace.
