SON OF A GUN is written and directed by Julius Avery and produced by Tom White. Being the film started off in prison and not that I’d like to visit, but I have always found these stories from here to have a high level of intrigue for me. This film had it as well and I think it used the setting well to develop the story and also make a statement that it was a place you wouldn’t want to visit. As for the story I think it was interesting and held my attention through out. I really can’t say much more than that in that since watching nothing has really stuck with me from the film making it somewhat forgettable. So for SON OF A GUN I give it 3 stars.
