Storyline

Nick Wells, a professional criminal, decides to leave the business for good, since he nearly got caught on his last job. His plan is to live in peace with his girl Diane, running his Montreal jazz club. Soon afterward, Max, his good friend and financial partner, comes along with an offer Nick can't refuse: A historical and priceless French scepter has been discovered while being smuggled into the country. It is now under massive surveillance in the Montreal Customs House, and soon to be returned to France. Nick has to team up with Max's man inside, the young, talented and aggressive thief Jack Teller to get the precious item. Only one question remains: Who will trick whom out of their share?

Trivia

The thermic lance used on the safe is a real cutting tool. Pressurized oxygen is pumped through an iron tube full of iron rods. An oxyacetylene torch is used to heat and ignite the open end, creating a stream of burning iron. Producing a temperature of around 4,500 degrees C, a thermic lance can burn rapidly through concrete and steel. See more »

Goofs

Nick uses a PVS-14 night vision monocular to see the IR beams while he is in the basement about to go into the cage containing the safe. However IR beams do not show up red, they show up white when using night vision devices. See more »

Quotes

Nick: How can I be sure you're okay?
Diane: I suppose I could fuck you.
Nick: That would work.

Modern Crime Movie Where Acting Takes Precedence Over Action
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Excellent acting is the attraction in this low-key heist movie, which only gets into high gear in the last 30 minutes of the two hours, and features some nice twists. Otherwise, it's a bit talky with a few lulls.

However, I still found it interesting thanks to Edward Norton's superb acting. His character, "Jack Teller" was very intriguing. Robert De Niro, as "Nick Wells" also was good to watch. De Niro rarely is boring. The third major player here is the even-more famous Marlon Brando, who only is referred to as "Max." This certainly isn't one of his more appealing roles but then, how many did he play since the '60s anyway? He - like Norton and De Niro - always grabs your attention regardless of the role, too.

Set in Canada, there were great shots of Montreal in this film, and a sharp DVD picture to show off the city. For those looking for a lot of action, skip this, but for those who are more interested in great acting, check this movie out.
