When the city power plant is destroyed, in a truly spectacular series of explosions, the city is shown experiencing a total blackout. For the rest of the movie, there is not a single light out, not a street light, traffic light, or building light, negating the whole premise of the robbery theme. See more »
This is not Lawrence of Arabia and doesn't pretend to be. It is engaging, exciting, crazy driving sequences, I cared about the characters and yes, it is shallow. Sometimes one doesn't want super deep mind bending movies, just escapism. I sure didn't think about bills due, or other minor problems during this movie. It was fun, if not really believable. It is what it is. Enjoy it if that sounds good. If you are the movie critic of all time, skip it and let some people have lighthearted, superficial fun. Having raced on a small level and taken high performance driving courses I was stunned that this could be filmed without CGI. The moves I saw were close to unbelievable and I can believe the movie had over 6000 edits and crashed over 130 cars-what a bill that must have been.
