Goofs

Towards the end, Big Nick is opening bags of shredded bills and breaking the bunches apart with both hands, and brushes his hands off with the other hand fairly roughly. Since he had a bullet wound in his right hand, there is no way he could have used both hands to do any of this. See more »

The most macho thing I have ever seen
6 January 2019 | by thekarmicnomadSee all my reviews

A bunch of professional thieves knock over a big city bank and butt heads with a not so professional bunch of police.

Now on paper there is a lot to not like about this. All the main characters look like human versions of He-man figures but with neck tattoos. Everything about them just screams ass-hole.

This is actually one of the films strong points. There are no good or bad guys in this film just seriously flawed people acting on some quite ambiguous motivations. I found this made the film more exciting because there is no chance of the "good guy" winning in the last moment.

There are lots of scenes that build on characters but ultimately feel like dead ends in retrospect but does get you invested.

The action is kept to the end and when things ignite it is very exhilarating and feels quite real.

Well shot, acted and produced. The actual heist when it pans out is not particularly clever.

If you are not a big fan of action movies then all the muscle bound guys fist-bumping each other and slapping butts might be a bit of a turn off for you.
