Decent caper film
28 March 2002 | by (Oakland CA) – See all my reviews

This fairly routine caper film is buoyed by three outstanding leads in Michael Rooker, Lysette Anthony, and Eric Roberts. As long as one can overlook the plot implausibilities the film holds one's attention. It's a shame that Roberts, the more talented member of the acting family, is stuck in B movies...but at least he raises them to B+ level!
