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.

Although this "Homecoming" serves its purpose, it’s just a forgettable waystation on the MCU map, where all roads lead to "Infinity War".
"Snatched" is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.
The film’s structure is suspect and its ability to develop a bond between the viewer and the characters is strained.
What happens when a promising premise is betrayed by a dumbed-down, hackneyed screenplay.
The narrative is choppy, the tension is less pervasive than it should be, and there’s no ending.
In "Silence", moments of brilliance punctuate an otherwise sluggish, self-indulgent narrative.
An ephemeral pleasure but a pleasure nonetheless.
