Poor Channing Tatum -- so young, and yet so haunted.
The sins of the past come a'callin' in "The Son of No One," the crime thriller that premiered earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival.
Dito Montiel's drama follows a young police officer (Tatum) who gets mixed up in a series of unsolved murders, some rather scandalous skeletons that his mentor and superior officer (Al Pacino) would rather keep in the precinct's closet. Things get more personal -- and dangerous -- when Tatum's family is targeted by sinister forces.
There have been many hard-hitting tales about the dark secrets of corrupt cops over the years, but very few that really stick with you once all the gritty dirt (and dirty grit) clears -- hopefully this one's going to be more "Training Day" than "Brooklyn's Finest."
One thing "The Son of No One" certainly has going for it is that great cast, which includes Katie Holmes, Ray Liotta, Tracy Morgan and even Juliette Binoche. And Tatum is just waiting for a role in which he really knocks it out of the park -- this could certainly be the one.
