“One bullet. Three lives. Everyone pays.” The question is: who’s paying for this turkey? Too soon? All I know about Shot is what I can glean from the trailer below — which reveals that the lead character’s a sound editor punching-up gunfire in a Western (ironic, amiright?). Then there’s what I can discern from the official synopsis . . .
“On an average Los Angeles day, a couple on the verge of divorce and a bullied teenager find their lives desperately changed when the boy’s illegal gun goes off.”
Goes off? Sigh.
Why did the filmmakers choose to have the movie’s middle-class hero shot “accidentally” by a [generally] “good kid”? Out there in the real world of LA gangs, amoral thugs are gunning down other amoral thugs with crystal clear intent, creating the occasional horrific collateral damage.
There’s a racial element to the casting and scripting, but I’m not going there. At least not until I see the whole movie. Meanwhile, Ralph’s review of Atomic Blond is on deck. Makarovs over moral preening, I say.
