In New York, Alvin Sanders is a small-time thief who's just been hauled in for stealing a bunch of prawns (shrimp) from a local restaurant. He ends up in a cell with John Jaster, one half of a high-tech criminal team that's just stolen $42,000,000 worth of gold from the Federal Reserve. Realizing that he could die at any moment from his worsening heart condition, Jaster tells Alvin to relay a cryptic message to his wife about the whereabouts of the hidden gold. Alvin doesn't know exactly what the message means, and Edgar Clenteen, the U.S. Treasury investigator working the case, hopes it will lead to the gold or Jaster's partner Bristol, but it does neither. Eighteen months later, Jaster is dead, and both Clenteen and Bristol are still looking for that gold. Clenteen decides to secretly plant a tracking device in Alvin's jaw, release him from prison, and then let the word out that he knows where the gold is hidden. Knowing that Bristol is probably watching their every move, Clenteen ... Written by
It is hard to believe that in the dead of winter that a heavy equipment operator could get into Yankee stadium, tear through the area behind home plate, bury several large boxes and leave the ground pristine for not only the subsequent thaw and several seasons without someone ever noticing.

That and the cases would not be managble by a single guy. See more »
The security at the gold vault at the Federal Reserve is incredibly low tech and is impossible to hack into either via computer or through a wall. Located many stories even below the subway, the only way in or out of the vault is through a ten foot corridor which is rotated at night, sealing the vault. (As a note, there is only a 72 hour air supply once the vault is sealed.) (This information is online at the bank's web site, so it's no secret.) See more »
I liked the film. Some of the action scenes were very interesting, tense and well done. I especially liked the opening scene which had a semi truck in it. A very tense action scene that seemed well done.
Some of the transitional scenes were filmed in interesting ways such as time lapse photography, unusual colors, or interesting angles. Also the film is funny is several parts. I also liked how the evil guy was portrayed too. I'd give the film an 8 out of 10.
