Storyline

Kota (Satoshi Tsumabuki) hears about an impending 1.5 billion yen gold bar heist from his friend Kitagawa (Tadanobu Asano), a former college classmate, and decides to take part. The gold bar sits in the basement of the HQ of Sumita Bank. Helping Kota and Kitagawa are bank security employee Noda (Kenta Kiritani), a North Korean spy pretending to be a college student (Shim Chang-Min), Kitagawa's younger brother Haruki (Junpei Mizobata) and a former elevator engineer (Toshiyuki Nishida). These 6 men are about to carry the boldest of schemes to bypass the bank's high-tech defense system. Written by Mishal Naji

Many better bank robbery films out there
1 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A-list acting, B-movie intentions, C-grade novel with D for scriptwriting. I confess I saw this without English subtitles, but subs are not likely to change my comment. A high-rated film starts with a good story, second in importance is the quality of the visual experience, third in importance is acting because actors almost always do their job with more actors available than roles available. This film has it all reversed. The script makes the film way too long. How many professional critics keep saying this about nearly every Japanese film, but current films still are overly long compared with those of the Japanese golden age of film? Far too much screen time was spent on the clumsy robbery and too little on the background of characters that are supposed to be what makes the source novel unique. I was disappointed at the end because the source novel relies on a concealed truth I consider my second most hated plot device in Asian films. Only amnesia I hate more. Doubly disappointing was the short time allotted to the crime's aftermath after wasting so much screen time on what came before. The film takes its time and then hastens to the end.

Unless you are a fan of the starring actors, there are far better crime films to be seen.
