Shot Caller

Another offering from Netflix but this one was definitely high up in my recommendations. Shot Caller is a riveting tale of the lead man with dual identities pre and posts his crime and the trials and tribulations along the way. In other words, our leading man Nicolaj Coster-Waldau as Jacob/Money is a white collar professional who inadvertently commits a crime and is sentenced to prison for a considerable time. How his outlook is shaped in prison keeps you glued eventually forcing him to commit a major crime in order to keep his family safe is the general plot ably supported by Job Bernthal.

Shot Caller

If you get your kicks with Action and Drama then rest assured, you can sit back with your popcorn and Pepsi and enjoy this intense prison drama with a respectable rating of 7.3 on IMDB which is a significant achievement in itself and worth it.
Shot Caller is directed by Ric Roman Waugh whose previous work was the switch starring Dwayne Johnson but is a far better tale in production values, compelling storytelling, direction and a more than convincing role play of the lead actor who eases into the part of the Caucasian man who has to show the way along some mind-blowing scenes, acute acting and a twisted climax.
Worth spending your time on.
