Don't let the great cast fool you, it's mediocre at best
25 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I looked at the excellent actors gathered together, I couldn't wait to see it. The premise of a robbery at the Colleseum during the Superbowl added to my high expectations. To my surprise, what I got was a dreary and routine melodrama in which none of the characters were interesting. Even the robbery itself was nothing that hadn't been done better elsewhere. A made for TV flick with a cast of unknowns could have it just as well. What happens after the robbery will surprise no one who hasn't seen this type of movie before, only it's not all that believable. As for the actors? Well, of course they perform well enough, but don't achieve the greatness they had in other roles. Watching this film is kind of like gathering The Beatles and having them perform "Chopsticks."
