Very handsome young gangster wants to leave the family business and lead a normal life but he needs money so one last heist.
Other reviewers cover the story in detail so I will not and just give my overall impressions.
No, this is not a great movie. However it is OK and entertaining.
The production values are low rent trying to be high rent. What do I mean? Well there are great shots from the air but they don't grab you like they do in a comparable film like Anthony Zimmerman.
The story is predictable and full of holes....you don't attack an airport and plane any more without getting the entire national defence force down on you--France has lots of Mirage fighters and so forth that would have been scrambling.
I guess overall this is pretty good boiler plate gangster flic avec un accent Français. There are many better The Double Hour, The Aura etc....
