A crafty nightclub owner (Jack) brings together a group of small time hoods and teams them up in unusual pairs (black man and white racist, Ivy Leaguer and simpleton) for a set of multiple heists which turn out to be an elaborate double cross against a notorious gangster (Dominic). During an extended standoff in a nightclub between Jack and his band of thieves and Dominic's henchman, the hoods discover why Jack brought them all together for what amounts to a suicidal mission.

Entertaining, for what it is.
9 September 2011 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

This movie is never going to end up anyone's top ten list, but it's still pretty entertaining. I like the twist quite a lot, but, beyond that, it's pretty much a standard heist movie. The ensemble cast is better than most of this type, with some pretty big names at the time. I remember watching it mostly because I was a big Chris Rock fan, and I was desperate to watch anything with him in it. I ended up enjoying this movie more than I thought I would. If I had to recommend an ensemble heist movie to someone, this probably wouldn't be my first pick, but I'd still mention it.

Interestingly, it was co-written by one of the leads in Hellraiser 3. Can't say I saw that coming.
