Storyline

Two teens impulsively decide to rob a bank, a la Bonnie and Clyde. Quickly they find themselves in over their heads as they are forced to take a bank full of hostages and the FBI are at the door. Hostages include a heroin addicted Gulf War vet, the pesky bank manager, a gruff old man, a calm bank employee, and a helpful young woman. The head FBI man must sort through the psychology of all the participants to try to keep the events from escalating. Underlying in all of this is the pure adolescence of the two who initiate the trouble. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Worth Your Time, Go See It!
3 July 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

When I first began watching this movie, I didn't think it would be good. After spending 10 minutes of my time to see the first bits of the movie, I was glued to the T.v. This movie was excellent it all ways. The characters where interesting and believable, the plot had you on the edge of your seat, and the ending has you shocked in disbelief. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend that you see this movie, it is defanitly worth your time. With all the action, and serious parts in this movie, Ash, the writer, threw in some comidy to losen you up. Stevie (Cameron Van Hoy) shows an excellient proformace! ( "I'm Psycho" ) and Rocky plays what a real 13 year old girl might think. After watching this, the only thing i could say was "Wow!"
