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

I've seen better film on pudding!

Beyond the City Limits or Rip-It-Off, more like just rip-off, is supposedly a heist movie featuring surprising backstabing. However the only backstabbing I detected must have been done to the writer, because they were unable to finish the script. There is time spent on character development but it is wasted. No back-story is revealed, we have no idea how the characters know each other, and minus one character you (I anyway) have no desire to know them. The acting is akin to that you would perhaps see in your child or siblings kindergarten play. Minus the performance of Alyson Hannigan who plays a smack junkie who can't kick the habit giving her character a least a reason for empathy. I see that the guidelines for posting a review say no spoilers but with this plot (if you call it that) it is next to impossible. Consider this a P.S.A. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!
