Two separate teams of jewel thieves, one low-rent and one upscale, both desperate, converge on the same score at the exact same time, and a simple job turns out very complicated and very bloody.

In Los Angeles, the gambler Paul Weston is a loser, and owes a lot of money to the dangerous mobster Freddie. When he is brutally beaten and the life of his former wife is threatened by the Freddie, his acquaintance bartender Vinnie sends him to Dr. Charlie Brooks first and then he convinces him to participate of a heist in the jewelry district with the professional thief Gene to raise the necessary money to pay his debt. Meanwhile, the stock market broker Roger Hargitay finds that the company where he works embezzled US$ 5,000,000.00 from their clients and he will be arrested in a couple of days. His boss Ed Koster convinces Roger and two co-workers to participate in an easy robbery of a jewelry planned by an inside man. On Saturday morning, both gangs arrive in the same jewelry for the same heist at the same time. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?


The display case in Charlie's office supposedly contains the military awards of her father, who was apparently a U.S. Marine as denoted by the large Marine Corps emblem at the top of the display. However, the case contains two Navy marksmanship medals and a Navy Good Conduct Medal ribbon. These awards are not given to Marines, since the Marine Corps has its own unique marksmanship badges and Good Conduct Medal. See more »

What did i just watch?
4 October 2006 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews


Trying my best to write a decent comment on this movie is frankly more than this movie deserves. So I wont bother.

This was like watching a really bad episode of the A-team, was this supposed to be a comedy? if so...why wasn't there any in it? If this was supposed to be an action movie, then why the elaborate pointless drama? If this was supposed to be a rip off of any and all bankjob movies then why in Gods name didn't they just make a rip off? Oh, it was a crime/drama ey? Sure, of course it was...silly me.

Right from the start this turkey really hits bottom, then digs. And boy can it dig.

1/10 is generous voting and a general rating of 5.8 is plainly absurd to the point of being insulting.

If u liked this, really, spare no costs, have a brain surgery...
