Boring drama
29 June 2014 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

The idea behind this movie - remaking "The Asphalt Jungle" with a mostly black cast - did have some promise. But the end results fail in just about every way you can think of. The movie is directed in a way that has some real grit and atmosphere - you can feel the run down atmosphere of 1970s Los Angeles. And things are wrapped up in the end in a cynical way that you could only get in 1970s cinema. But the screenplay is a mess. It takes FOREVER for the movie to really start going. When the robbery is executed, it comes as a surprise, since we previous saw almost no preparation for it. And after the robbery, the movie slows down once again, unfolding so slowly that I think even the black audience this was aimed at was sorely bored. It doesn't help that there is not one sympathetic character in the entire movie. This is one breeze that has the scent of a real stinker.
