Tense, violent, well made Australian crime thriller
27 March 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The story of an armored car robbery, apparently based on a true case. The acting is solid and the action, especially for a small budget film, is deftly handled, There are a number of good twists and turns along the way.

On the other hand, there's a bit of a feeling something's missing, like a unifying theme or underlying ideas. Or even character development.

Unlike (for example) Ben Affleck's recent The Town", this is a pretty simple film, just telling you an exciting story as solid B movie entertainment, and not aiming for much more. But there's certainly room for that alongside more 'thoughtful' or character orientated crime flicks.

Well shot, well directed by a young Bruce Beresford, and worth seeing if you're a fan of the genre.
