Trivia

During the discussion between Lieutenant Roy and Detective Steptoe, when the camera switches to Roy, the Clan MacPherson coat of arms can be seen to the upper right. The motto is Touch Not the Cat Bot the Glove, and refers to the clan's reputation as not to be trifled with. In keeping with the story line of poor policing convicting the wrong man for the crime, it foreshadows what may come. See more »

Good for a B movie
11 January 2019 | by garymathe-76173See all my reviews

Sutherland's appearance as the only A-lister is surprising but his performance is solid as always, while the rest of the cast is good considering they are virtual unknowns. The story is fairly unique and full of potential even if the execution is a bit silly. It brings up valid concerns about the justice system and social media, although for me it's a little too preachy. Verdict: Worth watching as long as expectations are kept fairly low.
