Storyline

Tommy and Gary are criminals engaging in grand thefts in order to make ends meet. They are opportunists and have no fear. After a routine robbery goes awry, the friends are forced to put their criminal activity behind them. As Tommy's relationship flourishes with his new girlfriend Scarlet, his economic hardships become obvious. Scarlet soon proposes a notion that will make all their money troubles vanish - the heist of a half a million dollar painting. With just a short window of opportunity, Tommy and Gary design an ambitious plan, one that will ultimately determine their fate. Written by Anonymous

This is an action movie!
20 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie.

It is briskly paced, brilliantly shot and meticulously choreographed and keeps you wanting more and more. This action sequence remains the best in the film and will have you grasping your theater seat because of the sheer intensity of it. Overall, Abstraction is slick, violent fun that turns into a remarkable, surprising film that will catch you off guard. It is THAT good. I highly recommend this film to action buffs especially but I'm sure those who just like a good movie will love it as well.

Anyone that says this movie is bad or complains about the plot or acting etc. needs a reality check. Action movies have never been known for their story lines and all the drama etc., it's an action flick so it won't win any big Oscars for acting etc. but it will give you a thrilling joyride.

I highly recommend this movie and congratulations to the film and crew on making this instant classic.
