Consensus: Needless stylistic flourishes and wholly illogical storytelling make The Son of No One a grisly, repugnant journey.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

Muddled cop thriller The Son of No One has a top-drawer cast and a bottom-drawer script.

Life is a struggle, the new film "The Son of No One" makes that explicitly clear. But so is moviemaking, and unfortunately the toil is all too evident in writer-director Dito Montiel's messy, logic-strained third feature.

New York Times

"The Son of No One" self-destructs in a ludicrous, ineptly directed anticlimactic rooftop showdown in which bodies pile up, and nothing makes a shred of sense.

Will Leitch

"The Son of No One" is terrible, which is really a shame, because it's clearly so heartfelt and sincere.

The sort of movie Channing Tatum made BEFORE "Magic Mike" and "Jump Street."
