Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.

An adult fairy tale that encourages the same emotional responses often engendered by such simple, heartfelt stories.

It starts with a bang, ends with a bang, and those scenes bookend some solid character moments and tense, atmospheric filmmaking.

A perfect time capsule that gives a real sense of what it was like to breathe the air of a recognizable yet wholly different New York City.

A tonal disaster – an awkward and ineffective attempt to blend dark comedy with social commentary.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Sexual Content, Profanity, Nudity)

MPAA Rating: "NR" (Adult Themes)

Its challenging content and well-crafted visuals more than counterbalance any narrative unevenness.

An inspirational story based on a true event with long-shot Oscar aspirations.

Despite being sold and marketed as a thriller, the most interesting aspects of "Shot Caller" are the dramatic ones.
