Goofs

The bus had to have been driving in one direction down the interstate for a minimum of three hours or more, since they were picked up before 4:00 AM and there was bright overhead sunshine when they finally stopped for refueling. Yet officer Kris was sent from the origin city with a gas truck after they requested fuel and was already waiting for them on the bridge. See more »

Good story and acting
31 January 2019 | by TheTopDawgCriticSee all my reviews

Great performances performances by DeNiro, Morgan and Bautista.

I feel some parts needed a little more 'oomph' as it felt dragged out a bit - a directing issue perhaps, by novice director Scott Mann, but forgivable seeing this was his 2nd full length feature film.

The screenplay could've used some tweaking, but the story itself was great - both by novice writer Stephen C. Sepher.

I just wish I heard less of the overbearing constant score that needed to be toned down, but otherwise, an enjoyable crime drama - a gangster film with heart, and a well deserved 8/10 from me
