Storyline

The Russians smalltime crooks Sergei Akotia and Yuri plan to hold up two million dollars from a casino with the inside information of the security guard Troy and the support of two dirty cops. When the two cops are killed, they decide to call off the heist and they kick out their girlfriends Misha and Lexi. Misha and Lexi meet an old friend of Misha, Helena Toretti, who is in a divorce process with the bored and upset detective Jack. The trio plots revenge against the guys and decide to rob the casino with Troy. But the plan turns upside-down with unpredictable events. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Lame Canadian heist flick will be of interest to Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans since it stars not only Allyson Hannigan (Willow) but also features Alexis Denisof (Wesley on Buffy and Angel). The movie seems like it might have been inspired by Bound, but it's unconvincing and dull. Of the three female leads Hannigan comes off best by far, bringing a touching vulnerability to her part. Jenniffer Esposito, on the other hand, is dreadful. You never believe her for a second and are always too aware that you're watching an actress play a part--and a not very good actress at that based on this movie and Backflash.
