Son of a Gun is an edge-of-your-seat crime thriller, initially set in the pressure-cooker environment of an Australian prison. New inmate JR (played by Thwaites) intends to serve out his sentence with minimal trouble, but is soon forced to accept protection from the nation’s public enemy number one Brendan Lynch (played by McGregor). So begins a tangled web of morally agonising debts to his protector that JR must carry out, including (once he is released) aiding Lynch in a high stakes prison-break operation.
The film promises to be a tense thriller that doesn't take itself too seriously - well-trodden characters and fast-paced car chases are presented with knowing nods to their own insincerity – cinema reviews have been mixed, but Son of a Gun will be light-hearted, fun entertainment and with the likes of McGregor holding the audience’s eye, it is sure to keep viewers gripped from start to finish. One the most thrilling new films out in the cinema, catch Son of A Gun from Friday 30th January. Son of a Gun movie reviews to come.
