The core idea of the script has a good and fairly original idea, namely that multiple people attempt to rob the same bank at the same time.
Unfortunately, the writer directed his own script and quite simply failed to tell the story in a coherent fashion on the screen. There is nothing particularly to fault about the acting (indeed there's a good cast) or technical aspects of the film, however the jumping back and forwards in the timeline just doesn't work right. Some scenes are repeated with slight variations, unfortunately the variations are so slight that it feels like you're suddenly watching a "+1" TV channel. The director also fails to make us care about (and therefore root for) a particular set of protagonists. The overall feeling at the end of the film is one of 'so what?'.
I suspect had the writer allowed someone else to direct his script we might have seen a much, much better movie.
