What you got there?
Oh, uh, well we've got some wine and bread, cheese, fruit and some prosciutto.
It's Italian deli food.
[smelling food on the plate]
Yo damn, that's ham, dog.
[sampling some of the prosciutto]
That's some good fuckin' ham.

Another heist-gone-wrong movie. It's been done before - criminals are cool etc. However this is still pretty good and thrilling all the way through. It is rarely slow or dull. All the actors are good with Gallo really bringing his character to life and making you feel for him. Sutherland does a good job of directing and even plays the crazy killer well.
The film evens tackles the issue of us viewing these people as cool - not something many do - and challenges us on our admiration of them (even if it is on a basic level).
Yes, you seen it before - but that doesn't mean it's totally unoriginal or not entertaining to watch.
