      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Shot Caller's weakness for action movie clichés is capably offset by strong work from Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in the central role.

      Christian K Some great prison riots and killings. Rock solid cast. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/15/24 Full Review Matt J This movie kept my interest and some light complexities to it. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau brings some fantastic depth to his character. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Audience Member Confused why he didn’t just go back to his family but this was some fun stuff. I recommend Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review A A This movie is amazing in so many facets. The plot is superb, the acting is another world for most characters, and the cinematography is phenomenal. Are there some things that could be changed? Sure, but few and far between for a movie that will keep pulling you in. On a side note it cracks me up with some of the "Top Critics" review of this movie that clearly had no understanding of it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/24 Full Review SmellyKat Y Great movie with a great cast. I loved it!

      Hannah Strong Little White Lies It seems to glamourise the violence within the prison system, falling back on lazy stereotypes and suggesting that shivving your way to the top can be excused if you have a noble aim. Rated: 2/5 Dec 17, 2017 Full Review Geoffrey Macnab Independent (UK) On many levels, Shot Caller makes no sense whatsoever. Rated: 2/5 Dec 15, 2017 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) The film is aiming for tough edges, but it's essentially very vanilla. Rated: 2/5 Dec 15, 2017 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews The better-than-average vibe is heightened and perpetuated by Coster-Waldaus terrific turn as the movies complicated central character... Rated: 3/4 Apr 28, 2022 Full Review Dan Buffa KSDK News (St. Louis) It's a sinister watch and doesn't play out like you initially think, but the surprises and performance from Coster-Waldau helps the film stick its landing. Nov 10, 2020 Full Review Steven Prokopy Third Coast Review While prison movies and films about criminals are hardly unique, the combination of the two in this way, showing the connection and how one never really leaves prison behind, in an interesting and surprisingly emotional journey.
