The Son of No One (2011)

Director: Dito Montiel

Stars: Channing Tatum, Al Pacino, Juliette Binoche, James Ransone, Ray Liotta, Katie Holmes, Tracy Morgan

When he was a youth in the Queensborough projects, Jonathan White, then known as Milk, killed a couple of junkies. His dead father's former partner, Detective Stanford, got him off the hook for the crime. Now a rookie police officer himself, Jonathan remains haunted by the incident. When a Queens reporter receives anonymous tips regarding the long-ago crime, the implications for both White and Stanford are clear.

This movie is proof that just because you cast a bunch of great actors in a movie does not mean that the movie is going to be great. This one is just fair. It is slow and not that interesting. This movie is just another cop drama. There is nothing that really set this one apart from any of the others. This movie could almost be an episode of NYPD Blue. It is really not that special.

The cast for the movie is great. Just look above to see all of the big names in the movie. The real problem was the look of a lot of the actors in the movie. Several of the actors looked like they did not care about the movie at all. It is like some of them were doing the creators a favor.

If you are a huge cop drama movies person, then you will like this movie a lot. This just is not a movie for everybody. The pace is slow and the acting is okay. I did not see anything really that impressive with the movie at all, but that is just my opinion. Enjoy.
