Storyline

Two novice thieves are plotting to rob a bank in Vancouver. A photographer snaps a shot of one thief as he is carrying the bank building's blueprints. The would-be thief then begins a relationship with the photographer and attempts to retrieve the photos. Meanwhile, the thieves' plot consists of this: one man will enter the bank building after dark, while the other man sits in a van and uses a computer to unlock the building's doors. The final step involves transporting the cash to a freight ship waiting on the docks, for transportation to a money launderer in Macau. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Underrated Gem
7 May 2020 | by dtrobbSee all my reviews

Starting watching it the other night. I'm a sucker for '79 filmed in Vancouver movies. Rated 22% favorability by Xfinity TV rating system. Expected zero. Expected to stop watching because it would be so bad in a few minutes. Surprise. Thought it was a super movie. Probably, because I expected so little. Usually how those things work. Look for it. Enjoy.
