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
The security at the gold vault at the Federal Reserve is incredibly low tech and is impossible to hack into either via computer or through a wall. Located many stories even below the subway, the only way in or out of the vault is through a ten foot corridor which is rotated at night, sealing the vault. (As a note, there is only a 72 hour air supply once the vault is sealed.) (This information is online at the bank's web site, so it's no secret.) See more »
This was a good movie to rent. I enjoyed it for it's entertainment. This is not a movie that I would have to see over and over again, then again there are very few movies that good.
Overall, though, this was a well made and entertaining movie. After reading some of the reviews, I still hear people who are wanting perfection out of a movie before they can just sit down and enjoy. People, remember they are just movies. If you want reality watch the news. At least this movie had some good acting and some humor built into it. I'll be the first to admit that I have seen some better movies than this one, but then again, I have seen way worse.
If you just enjoy sitting back and laughing, with a little bit of adrenaline rush, rent this movie.
