Storyline

After five years in prison for grand theft auto, Vince returns to Toronto. Kranski, his old boss, insists that he repay a large debt (money lost in his arrest) by boosting cars. His cover is a mechanic's job at Kranski's garage. In his spare time, Vince welds pieces of scrap metal into sculptures; a trendy gallery owner spots one and sells it for thousands and commissions more. Art might be Vince's ticket out if he can get Kranski off his back. Meanwhile, Vince's prolix parole officer is circling, and Kristen, the gallery owner's assistant, beguiles Vince.

Quotes

[first lines]
Pogue: Two pairs of socks, that's the key.
Vince: Key to what?
Pogue: The key to staying fresh and feeling good, ya know. What you do is you keep an extra pair of socks in your pocket, one in your lunch pale, around 2-3 o'clock in the afternoon you slap those bad boys on, bam, you fell like a million bucks.
Vince: I'll have to remember that.

A type of heist movie that has parts of "Gone In 60 Seconds" mixed with the Oceans movies. Not much new, but its OK. I say B-
12 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"How does a guy like me wind up in a place like this?" When Vince is released from prison he thinks he is free. After a run in with crime boss Kranski (Sutherland) he is forced to do one last heist before being allowed to move on with his life. Caught between being an artist and a thief Vince has to decide what life he prefers. This was actually a pretty decent movie, but it did tend to drag in parts and the love story aspect of it seemed unnecessary for the most part. There is not much new in this movie that has not been in hundreds of other movies, the big heist is pretty much a direct rip off of "Gone in 60 seconds". It's not bad but after that movie or "Italian Job" or the Oceans movies this one is a re-hash but not as good. Overall not a bad movie, but nothing you haven't seen before. I give it a B-.

Would I watch again? - I don't think I will
