People in a Pittsburgh bank are taken hostage when a bank-robbery goes wrong. It's the work of a group of initially masked Iraq veterans, lead by sergeant 'Wolf', who also has secret trump-cards outside. The police lays siege to the bank, with experienced Horst Cali as negotiator, whose authority is however challenged by the D.A.'s office, deputy chief Abrami, a local tycoon leaning politically to save his daughter and the FBI.

Caught me by surprise!!!!!!!!!
22 August 2007 | by See all my reviews

What can I say, I never thought this cast could pull it off. I've tuned into every episode and it keeps me wanting more every time.

I thought the plot was impossible at first but then as I watched, I realized what an excellent job they've done at making this show realistic and intense.

If you dislike this show, then obviously you have a different taste for drama. This show provides a twist to the bank heist shows/movies we've seen in the past.

John Leguizamo as a lead cast member is excellent. He's really captured the dramatic and intense nature of the character he portrays. Never thought he could do it!

As for Donnie Walhberg, well if you haven't noticed since this is a Lions Gate production, they do have they favourites they like to use. (Anyone notice jigsaw :-P) Anyhow I've become a fan of Donnie after seeing his performance in a few recent flicks. He's come a long way from the New Kids On The Block days!

Gotta love Lions Gate as they keep coming out with some unique products lately that the audience hasn't seen before!

Good Job!
