Tracy Morgan was great in this movie but that wasn't enough to make me like it.

It was a huge let down. There were major actors in this movie. I felt like the movie was going nowhere fast. Good acting POOR directing.

Tracy Morgan gives an outstanding performance in this unsolved 1986 murder in Queensbridge NY projects. Although the plot and both Pacino and Liotta are predictable, there are other elements which allows the film to rise above predictable: the photography, the child actors, and even Katie Holmes.........the moments of depth of feeling transcend the flashback from 2002 make this worthwhile viewing.

Performances are strong across the board, and the movie offers a solid sense of place. But the mysteries, once explained, don't make a lot of sense. Full Review
Andrew O'Hehir
It's kind of fun to watch Pacino and Liotta and Tatum and James Ransone, as Jonathan's foulmouthed partner, as they roar at each other and suck the marrow from the hambone. You can see why actors want to work with Montiel, but actors are notoriously bad judges of whether good scenes will ever add up to a worthwhile movie, which is exactly the problem here. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
Despite all the nervous tension, the central drama is flawed - Jonathan isn't trying to find a killer. He is the killer. Something is lacking in the dramatic equation. Full Review

By the time The Son of No One reaches its wanna-be-tragic finale, you'd like nothing more than to kick this bastard child to the curb. Full Review
Melissa Anderson
Village Voice
Tatum is touching as the stressed, decent provider trying to make something bad from his past not destroy his future. Yet the real surprise is Tracy Morgan, in a small but transformative role as the heavily medicated adult incarnation of Jonathan's childhood friend. Full Review
