100 Word Review – Son of a Gun

The usually charming Ewan McGregor swaps his smile for a semi-automatic in this tidy Australian crime story. Add his believable malevolence to his comfort with action and I wonder if this will spark a change in direction.

It may not be a mould breaker but as a feature debut it shows promise for director Avery, proving he can handle action scenes and quieter moments equally. Thwaites barely registers, whilst Vikander does her best with an obvious role. Scenes between McGregor and Nable are highlights, their chemistry far more interesting than anything the story has to offer. Only fleetingly memorable overall.
