Storyline

Billy Ray Lee and Guile (Johnny Yong Bosch and Jason Narvy of the successful Power Ranger television series) a pair of small time thieves bungle their biggest heist, and stumble into a second chance. Robber's instinct draws them to an abandoned warehouse where they covertly witness a man inputting data into a computer. They see the man nervously stash a book into a hidden safe, then exit the warehouse. Thinking the book is valuable and with nothing to lose, the duo breaks in and steals it. Unknown to them, undercover FBI agent Kim Matsuda is observing them at a distance. She watches horrified and helpless as the two unwitting interlopers compromise a long-term sting operation set up to nab a ruthless gang of high-tech bank robbers. The book contains bank codes and passwords for accounts amounting to millions of stolen dollars! The intensity increases as Kim tails them and quickly formulates a plan to retrieve the book.

A no-budget showcase for great stunt choreography
29 August 2011 | by (Kent, England) – See all my reviews

Were it not for the amazing stunt work in this film there would be very little to recommend it. Shot on a minuscule budget, as evidenced by the use of disused warehouses and wide-open spaces for the majority of the shooting, Extreme Heist aka Wiked Game is essentially a show reel for two stunt teams. The production quality may be poor and the narrative weak, but the creativity and expertise of the Alpha Stunt Team and AAC is certainly adequate compensation. Following a formula similar to the far superior Drive (Steve Wang, 1996) this is something of a companion piece, co-directed as it is by that film's choreographer Koichi Sakamoto. He and Makato Yokoyama (director of the awesome Shadow Fury (2002)) have had steady careers working on the Power Rangers franchise (still going since 1993) but have never made the action hit fans have always longed for. Sakamoto and Yokoyama obviously made Extreme Heist in between Power Rangers episodes and even roped in Johnny Yong Bosch (The Black Ranger) and Jason Narvy (bad guy Skull), to star in their venture. Like Marc Dacascos before him, Bosch demonstrates skill and agility that screams out for more elaborate and high profile work. Sadly Bosch's career hasn't hit the heights of Dacascos's. The action scenes which make up the majority of the film are superb, a testament to the way talented filmmakers can produce something from nothing. Action seems to have been choreographed from whatever was affordable, with shoddy shacks and cars serving as both locations and props for the performers. The stunts are both physical and vehicular, with many sequences bringing the two into close contact. Bosch fights off hordes of minions and has a showdown with the tall villain at the climax, but even in the quieter moments he adds impressively unnecessary flourishes to his actions. Not content to sell the film solely on fights and vehicular stunts, Sakamoto and Yokoyama injected the theme of extreme sports into the story by opening and closing the film with impressive skydiving sequences. The ending is especially notable, including an interesting attempt at gunplay as they plummet to earth.
