A gritty L.A crime saga which follows the intersecting and often personally connected lives of an elite unit of the LA County Sheriff's Dept. and the state's most successful bank robbery crew as the outlaws plan an impossible heist on the Federal Reserve Bank of downtown Los Angeles.Written by
During the armored truck hijack, the robbers warn the driver that they will fire armor piercing (AP) rounds through the windshield, but they instead tear out the windshield with a drill contraption. Despite this, the cops later say that the windshield was shot out, although no rounds were actually fired at it. See more »

A one time watch crime thriller with awesome gun shot sequences n a clever but dangerous heist.
Bank robbery, gun shot action sequences, trailer of this film n Gerard Butler, all these were suffice for me to view this n i was not at all disappointed. Saw this in a theatre. Comparisons with Heat n The Town will b inevitable but this movie is a solid crime thriller with enuff action/gun shot sequences n a dangerous n clever heist.
The final shoot-out scene will satisfy fans of Miami Vice (the shoot-out scene).
Another good aspect is that the pacing is good and it's never dull.
Pablo Schreiber (Preservation) was convincing as an ex military leader turned into a robber.
Gerard Butler has a solid screen presence.
O'Shea Jackson Jr. gav a solid performance (spitting image of his father Ice Cube).
Action fans will not b disappointed. Looking forward to its sequel.
