JR is sent to prison for six months where he lands between two gangs. Taken into protection by Brendan Lynch (Ewan McGregor as the tough guy) this naturally requires compensation. When JR is released, he is taken into Lynch’s gang and his first job is helping Lynch to escape.
After this JR is dragged from one job to the next, never feeling quite at his place and trying to find a way out of this world of heavy crime.
“Son Of A Gun” is an alright film with a very good McGregor.
