Trivia

While there are scenes that show R30 class subway trains running on the IRT Lexington Avenue Line, this would be physically impossible in reality. Due to NYC's subway having been constructed by competing companies, trains for the lettered lines would not fit on the numbered lines as they are too wide. IRT trains are narrower and shorter than BMT/IND trains. See more »

What a huge waste of time
10 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is the kind of movie that makes you regret watching it, but holds on to you with the false promise that something worthwhile is going to happen eventually.

It was advertised as a heist movie. The heist takes place in the last 30 minutes. Prior to that, there is less than 5 minutes of discussion about the heist, and a lot of nothing about no less than four yawn-inducing subplots. The girl, the bad boss, the mob that wants to collect a debt, and the mugger they chase, and chase. With all the time wasted on those tangents there is very nearly nothing in the way of story development for what is supposed to be the main plot.

Granted the main characters need a motive and the mob provides it, but it shouldn't take literally two-thirds of the movie to establish a motive.

The insidious thing about it is that, when you have to wait so long for the plot to start, you have an incentive to sit through the long prelude only to be disappointed by the most ridiculous, and simply lame, heist in memory.

Skip this garbage. It's the product of some Hollywood hacks with no brains at all who don't have the sense to know when to send a script back for a re-write.
