Customer Reviews

The ending is predictable and far too prolonged.
Grady Harp
The movie was very slow and had a 5 minute idea that they kept repeating over and over until you either struggle through or end up finishing just to see the ending.
Tony Heck

Channing Tatum plays Jonathan "Milk" White, a police officer who recently transferred to Queensboro, NY. It is 2002, the aftermath of 9-11 is going on, and acts as a symbol of Jonathan's life. The movie flashes back to 1986 when Jonathan lived in the Queensboro projects with his grandmother. He was harassed by a thug, who he shot and killed. The body was dumped in the garbage, the crime was never solved. A lot of people knew "Milk" did it. The people in the projects hate the cops.

Now in 2002, Jonathan lives with his wife Katie Holmes and a daughter with a medical condition. She is one of those adorable kids that make you want to run out and have a dozen or so. There is a push to clean up the district, making it safe. There is an anonymous person who places articles about TWO unsolved murders from 1986, a reminder to Jonathan. The projects is still an asylum and the cops have better things to do than to dig up a 16 year old case (the movie claims 14 years, but do the math.)

Al Pacino plays Officer Charlie who was investigating the case in 1986. Ray Liotta plays Captain Marion Mathers , Jonathan's boss. Jonathan was the son of a police officer, one that was the partner of Officer Charlie.

As the movie progresses we get more pieces of the puzzle and the harassment becomes more intense. We are drawn into it. We want to know, "Who is the snitch?" "Why are they doing this?" "Who else knows?" The snitch part is fairly easy to figure out.

This isn't Pacino's finest film. This isn't the best cop drama around. The acting was decent, the script had a certain amount of predictability. Katie Holmes was great for the short time she was on the screen. It makes for a decent rental.

PARENTAL GUIDE: F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.

"You can hate me all you want, but your a free man." When rookie officer Jonathan White (Tatum) is assigned to the precinct where he grew up letters start showing up that mention two unsolved murders. When the letters remind White of his past he is stuck between trying to uncover who is sending them and covering up his involvement. I am a huge Pacino fan and that is the reason I wanted to watch this. The trailer looked OK but anything with him I will watch. He was great in this. That about it. The movie was very slow and had a 5 minute idea that they kept repeating over and over until you either struggle through or end up finishing just to see the ending. I will admit that the last ten minutes makes it worth watching, but getting to that part is a real struggle. Any scene without Pacino or Liotta lacks emotion and you have a hard time caring for White at all. Tracy Morgan is actually not bad in a dramatic performance but overall this is one of the biggest disappointments of the year. I give it a C-.

Poor use of continual flashbacks. Weak, uninspired or thought-out script for some very good actors. Totally contrived. Good acting wasted. Don't waste your time.

THE SON OF NO ONE (Dir. Dito Montiel, 2011, 95 minutes) is an intense, chilling mystery that must have been written by one cop-hating individual! A further detail must be indicated: this was first released in Russia. Can someone PLEASE explain to me why I am seeing good American film, shot in America, American production and studio, American actors, opening in weird places like Russia, Bulgaria, the Caucasus Mountains?! Please?

Officer Jonathan White (the ultra-hot and talented Channing Tatum) is a shell-shocked young cop, stuck in a weird precinct in New York where his deceased father once served. The year is 2002, the city is on high alert (for no reason as we now know) and Jonathan's childhood is coming back to haunt him horribly. This is no paranormal garbage - it is all too real, I suspect, for the poor masses huddled in gigantic, drug-plagued projects.

Flashbacks to 1986: in the horrible gigantic projects, young Jonathan dwells with his elderly grandmother. Living in perpetual fear of the scumbags who plague the apartments, drug dealers and child molesters alike, young Jonathan mysteriously gets his hands on a gun. We are not told, but are able to guess, he wants protection. His father already killed in the line of duty, Jonathan has only his friend Vinnie (originally offered to Terence Howard but played by Tracy Morgan).

A filthy, deranged drug pusher breaks into an apartment and Jonathan shoots him in the head, Pure reflex and a child's sad luck, but it is an expert bull's eye. He and Vinnie throw the man into the trash. Later, as Jonathan is fending off another drug dealer who is trying to extort him, Jonathan pushes him down some stairs and kills him also.

It was an ok thriller. characters interaction seemed to forced to be effective as it could have been. Still there was an adequate emotional punch at the end of the film. Any film with Pacino is worth the fare.

Th acting was superb. In reaction to the review by E Hernandez, I wrote a comment. I'll repeat the comment here. The movie was shipped to Russia for viewing first because it portrays poor living conditions in the US, namely, the Queensboro apartments where White lived as a child. The Socialists in this country will take whatever license they can to hurt America's reputation. And, the Marxists connected with the distribution shipped it to Russia.
