    Action packed with high stakes, Son of a Gun had me hooked all the way to the end.

    A fab wee movie great story and well acted by all. Criminalistic shoddy brotherhood of backstabbing and twists and turns nicely bob along. Thoroughly enjoyed.

    McGregor and Thwaites are great. There’s a style and ferocity to the action that helps it pop. But, the pacing is slower than you’d want from a heist film and the Vikander love angle feels more forced than natural.

    A really good film with an interesting plot. Many parts of this film was pretty fast paced and exciting to watch with a lot of gritty sequences. Brenton Thwaite's did a good job, Alicia Vikander was really good and did a good accent but Ewan McGregor stole the show! he did such a good job and he was so different to the majority of his other roles so that made this a really refreshing film to watch.

    While the directing and acting works on pretty much all levels, the plot of this jail / gangster / heist thriller is a little high on coincidence and pretends to end on a twist that's not particularly surprising. Still, the action scenes are well done and you want to know how it all ends. An entertaining film whose Australian setting gives it a distinctive look...

    It's mainly held up by Ewan McGregor's believable display as an escaped convict looking for one last job.

    Son of a gun it's a fun little crime movie that starts off really well but unfortunately the second half of the movie is in a strong as the first. The performances are well done and the script is decent. I wanted to know a little bit more about these characters though because I know absolutely nothing about their past. I little bit more characterization and a stronger second half would have made this into a crime classic.
