I saw a trailer for this when it was first released and it really didn't appeal to me much, but several people recommended it to me, so I decided to check it out. I'm glad I did because I thought it was really good. There are lots of twists and turns and some of them are a bit hard to believe, but overall I thought this was really entertaining while also having a bit more depth than the average thriller.

After making three socially relevant great films, British director Steve McQueen decided to make this action film. I hope he makes a lot of money with it so he can again some day either make socially relevant films or improves on this recipe of action with hidden socially relevant ideas.

We stopped watching this due to the high amount of violent content.

Watched 15-30 minutes. Too violent and boring. Overrated.

It’s an ok movie, pretty entertaining but the twist was way over the top.
Lower your expectations one notch down and you will enjoy it.

Was surprised by how awful it movie is. The characters are unlikable, the movie is slow moving, and it seems the cops in Chicago are MIA. Skip it.

Recommended by us. We watched this twice as we missed things the first time around. Annoying back-and-forth in time, which was not done really well. BUT watching it the second time, we were able to pick up on all the convoluted connections, which really made the movie quite good. Virtually EVERYTHING said or done in the movie is relevant to something else in the story, so be prepared to pay attention to every face, happening, and especially dialogue!

Some quotes in IMDb. These are focused on Chicago politics:

Most people don't know what an alderman does... including a fair number of aldermen. It comes from the Old English, meaning "older man." When I was a younger man, Facebook... Back then, a face was something you tried never to forget.
===
The Mulligans have run the 18th ward for 60 years. My grandfather, my father. These days it's all about name recognition.
===
Nepotism isn't illegal. It's actually celebrated. This is Chicago.
===
You know how many shootings happened in this city last weekend alone?
Thirty-four! These people are killing each other! This is not where I wanna raise my children.
===
What are you gonna do? Work in a bank? Take the train downtown, punch a clock? This is your life! This is our life. It's what we do. Everyone has a fxcking sob story, most of them better than yours. So, if the idea is to be mayor one day, you'd better man the fuck up!

More on Chicago:

Alderman of this ward makes a $104,000 a year. ... But then you add in the juice, right? He gives his friend a contract for a new building, gets a kickback. Gives his brother a contract for construction. Hell, he give his mama a contract for construction. That man owns a piece of every fucking thing. The only people coming after him, they got cameras and microphones. People coming after us with guns.
===
I'm a proud sixth generation Chicagoan. We laugh louder, we work harder, we sleep to the rattle of the "L" train.
===
I always said he should burn in hell. But, hey, Chicago'll do.
===
Mom, you always say a gun is a girl's best friend.
===
Look around you. It's like Custer's Last Stand. It's kill or be killed. Now, listen to me, son. Listen, we made this city. We're not having it taken away from us
by people who come here illegally... or by people who can't stop, you know...
making babies. That means staying in power... at all costs. You got that?
