The obvious comparisons to Reservoir Dogs are there. And it's not the worst "remake" (re-imagening or whatever you want to call it, because it's not just exactly the same) I have seen. The action is pretty neat and it does take into account where it is shot. We do have our "regular" B-movie characters all over this movie, but they are doing a good job for a low budget thriller.
The story has some twists and turns, I didn't try to think too much about where it would be going (I can imagine seeing most of them a mile ahead). Not surprising then, but a nice pace and good stunt/action sequences. Morality aside, this works finely
