But when the job goes down, allegiances are betrayed and lines are crossed as Jack, Karen, and Eddie face off in a fateful showdown. Lionsgate Premiere will release the action thriller in theaters and on demand on April 22, 2016. Written by
The scene where they shoot a shotgun, with the barrel wrapped in a condom (I am guessing so it does not fall out), at the (bulletproof) window of an armored car with spark plugs (ceramic), is real. The idea is that spark plugs do shatter windows, with bulletproof glass you simply need to make sure the ceramic of the spark plugs is aimed at one spot. See more »
The duct tape holding the grenade to the door is positioned differently between shots.
Also, the grenade's spoon is facing left in one shot and right in the next. See more »

Review: After an impressive beginning, and some flash opening credits, this movie was a right let down. The acting was pretty poor from Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Jack) and Claire Forlani (Karen), and the script was poorly written. Bruce Willis (Eddie) seemed a bit out of place through the whole film, and the action scenes were far fetched and way over the top. There were some humorous scenes, which made the film slightly watchable but the storyline is predictable and Jack, who looked and acted just like Chris Pratt, became annoying after a while. Although the film had a reasonable budget, it still seemed cheap, even though there is loads of explosions and gun action. I wasn't that disappointed, because Bruce Willis hasn't starred in a decent movie for ages, and he has been making a lot of "straight to DVD" movies lately, for the independent market. I did like the chemistry between Jack and his handy sidekick Logan (Jenna B. Kelly) and Daniel Bernhardt (Simon) played a convincing baddie alongside Willis but apart from that, it's just another average movie, that will be quickly forgotten. Average!
Round-Up: This is the first movie directed by Max Adams, who also wrote this film, along with Extraction, which also starred Bruce Willis, and Heist, which starred Robert DeNiro but none of the movies were that good. Mark-Paul Gosselaar, 42, is mostly known for his appearances on TV, in series like Pitch, CSI, Truth Be Told and Franklin & Bash, which explains why I haven't seen, or heard of him before. As for the rest of the cast, I did like Claire Forlani in Meet Joe Black but her career didn't really take off. Bruce Willis has really hit rock bottom, with films like Extraction, Vice and this film, and with another Die Hard movie in development, called Die Hard: Year One, it really needs to be a decent movie for people to start taking him serious again, although his screen charisma is pretty unique. Anyway, this film was pretty bad but it's watchable, if you've got nothing better to do.
Budget: $10.5million Worldwide Gross: N/A
I recommend this movie to people who are into their action/crime/comedies, starring Mark- Paul Gosselaar, Bruce Willis, Claire Forlani, John Brotherton, Lydia Hull, Daniel Bernhardt and Ashley Kirk. 3/10
