Storyline

The Russians smalltime crooks Sergei Akotia and Yuri plan to hold up two million dollars from a casino with the inside information of the security guard Troy and the support of two dirty cops. When the two cops are killed, they decide to call off the heist and they kick out their girlfriends Misha and Lexi. Misha and Lexi meet an old friend of Misha, Helena Toretti, who is in a divorce process with the bored and upset detective Jack. The trio plots revenge against the guys and decide to rob the casino with Troy. But the plan turns upside-down with unpredictable events. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Acceptable B-flick
18 March 2002 | by (Reuver, Holland) – See all my reviews

The story is nothing new: Three girlfriends stealing the money their boyfriends intended to steal. I see this more as a Bound meets Ocean Eleven, but done with a tiny budget.

The acting, on the other hand, is very good. Especially the three female leads and Todd Field. They keep the film going and watchable.

Beyond City Limits is an enjoyable film without many surprises and despite its many flaws it's watchable.
