During gunfights between Jim, Tom and the police, Jim and Tom have one revolver and one semi-automatic handgun between the two of them. Yet, they seem to have an endless supply of bullets, with no apparent access to extra bullets. In fact, Tom retrieves his gun from one of the dead robbers, but not the bullets. Also, we never see either Jim or Tom reloading their guns from their supposed endless supply of bullets. See more »

This film starts off ok. It started off with a lot of promise and potential
armoured truck - lots of $$$ - lots and LOTS of rain. Unfortunately it
never delivers. The film starts to get boring quite quickly and by the end you are almost glad that it is over. If you really must see this film then rent it - it is just worth spending £3 on, luckily a friend pursuaded me not to spend £18 on the DVD. Minnie Driver is very good considering the below average script and she once again gives another convincing american accent but she is still FAR FAR better in the superb Grosse Pointe Blank (well worth £17 for the DVD). Oh and another redeeming feature is that the band "Jars of Clay" provide a superb song (and a rather appropriate one) entitled "Flood".
