RIDERS a French / Canadian production directed by Gerard Pires (the creator of the first TAXI movie) was compared with XXX which is really insulting for RIDERS.
While XXX tried to created a serious secret agent all American movie (which was his biggest mistake) RIDERS only tries to be good and unexpected fun. Instead of trying to develop impossible characters, RIDERS put a few surprisingly well directed actors (Stephen Dorf is superb) in a very complicated game of robberies and betrayal. It never loose time (the movie is barely 83 minutes) with unnecessary dialogue and cut to the action or to the unexpected turns as fast as possible.
It also avoids the 21 century politically correctness. The sympathy is with the thieves.
The action scenes are excellent stunt works not digital effects; which makes you hold your breath several times.
In brief; an excellent way to enjoy an hour and a half
