Storyline

In New York, Alvin Sanders is a small-time thief who's just been hauled in for stealing a bunch of prawns (shrimp) from a local restaurant. He ends up in a cell with John Jaster, one half of a high-tech criminal team that's just stolen $42,000,000 worth of gold from the Federal Reserve. Realizing that he could die at any moment from his worsening heart condition, Jaster tells Alvin to relay a cryptic message to his wife about the whereabouts of the hidden gold. Alvin doesn't know exactly what the message means, and Edgar Clenteen, the U.S. Treasury investigator working the case, hopes it will lead to the gold or Jaster's partner Bristol, but it does neither. Eighteen months later, Jaster is dead, and both Clenteen and Bristol are still looking for that gold. Clenteen decides to secretly plant a tracking device in Alvin's jaw, release him from prison, and then let the word out that he knows where the gold is hidden. Knowing that Bristol is probably watching their every move, Clenteen ... Written by Todd Baldridge

Trivia

It is hard to believe that in the dead of winter that a heavy equipment operator could get into Yankee stadium, tear through the area behind home plate, bury several large boxes and leave the ground pristine for not only the subsequent thaw and several seasons without someone ever noticing. First the equipment would have to have been on-site, then through the permafrost ground, the removal of soil dislodged from the size of the cases, somehow replacing everything like it never happened, hoping in the spring everything appeared perfect and then fixing any damage from the heavy equipment. That and the cases would not be managble by a single guy. See more »

Goofs

When Alvin hot wires the van to get the explosives away from the people, the steering column is locked preventing use of the steering wheel or the gear shift. He couldn't have driven it off. See more »

Good action and Humorous
17 September 2000 | by See all my reviews

I liked the film. Some of the action scenes were very interesting, tense and well done. I especially liked the opening scene which had a semi truck in it. A very tense action scene that seemed well done.

Some of the transitional scenes were filmed in interesting ways such as time lapse photography, unusual colors, or interesting angles. Also the film is funny is several parts. I also liked how the evil guy was portrayed too. I'd give the film an 8 out of 10.
