A good old formula heist flic done right.
12 February 2003 | by mifunesamuraiSee all my reviews

It has a perfect set-up for character establishment followed by a few surprises and then the chase is on between the young arrogant Skip,(Dorff), and the old but wiser Roy, (Keitel). You may forgive the film as it falls into "tough guy with heart and romance for weeping woman" scenario but that's part of the genre. The perfect hard hitting gritty drama for a late, late night viewing to keep one awake.
