Shailene Woodley stars in this gritty and dark crime drama about a beat cop recruited by the FBI to solve a series of mass shootings in Baltimore. Playing a little like ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ mixed with anything by David Fincher, it’s buoyed by solid performances by Woodley and Ben Mendelsohn, along with top-level cinematography by Javier Juliá. Though the script by Damián Szifron (who also directed) leans a little too hard on the good-ol’ familiar police procedural tropes, there’s still more than enough in the tank to make this a worthwhile watch.

3.5/5 stars
