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. Written by <>

feels like an 80's(bad) buddy cop film
15 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had a hard time buying into the whole movie , it never sold me. good movies grab you and suck you in , making you "feel " the story as if you are living it with the actors ,

i could believe that mannequins came to life to write and star in this one.

I saw a 2010 release date , but could not shake the 80's feel of this movie -- think armed and dangerous, or a bad "48 hrs" (48 hrs was good ).

the female lead was really contrived and cardboard.

This one has been done a million times since the 8o's, and it has been done better most of those times.

i am sure this movie has it's fans, however ,i would not watch this again or recommend .

a tired story told badly.
