Storyline

In Las Vegas, vice LVMPD policemen Vincent Downs and Sean Cass rob a shipment of cocaine belonging to entrepreneur Stanley Rubino, who intended to sell it to mobster Rob Novak, the son of a powerful mob boss. They volunteer to investigate the robbery in order to cover up their involvement, clashing with Internal Affairs investigators Jennifer Bryant and Doug Dennison, who are suspicious of their involvement. It is also revealed that Vincent is estranged from his wife Dena, who is getting remarried, and has minimal involvement in the life of his 16-year-old son Thomas..

Trivia

Jamie Foxx obviously wasn't happy with the released version of Sleepless (2017) and said on stage at the BET Awards: "I can't wait to tell you about that joint Baby Driver (2017)! It's crazy, it's cool, and it ain't a typical film. It brings a thrill ride, so everybody can experience it. And it's good too! It ain't like that last joint I had. I know, it's tough. It's tough when you still gotta promote it. You know it's bad when they don't ask you nothing about the movie like, 'Man that jacket you was wearing is tight'. Yeah, I know it sucked."

Goofs

Throughout the film the main characters are seen moving the drugs from location to location - there are supposed to be 23kg of cocaine - this is quite a weight yet very little effort is used when moving the stash. See more »

Bryant: Someone takes a dump in my department, I know about it!

Inconsistencies, inconsistencies, inconsistencies

This movie could've been a real hit if only everyone in the production paid attention to the inconsistencies. And yes I said that again.

From the beginning of the movie where an empty Las Vegas is shown during the car chase, you know there's something wrong, yet one would give this movie a chance because it looks as if a decent budget is put into making it. I mean after all, Jamie Fox is in it, right? Well, that's about it, I can't believe Jamie Fox, a decent actor didn't even question the script of this movie, I guess everyone's just looking to get paid. The rest of the movie is questionable, trust me, see this movie and you would stop and ask, either in your head or someone why, or how, or wtf were they thinking? Questions such as why is the main character stabbed and not bled to death? If not dead, why is he weak and feeling so much pain when walking/running yet fights like an action hero when fighting the bad guys? How is he and his son able to withstand the gasses in the garage when the bad guys fired tear gases and are wearing protective masks? Why his son didn't just leave the casino given the chance to escape? oh yeah, I forgot, he wanted to go clubbing. lol! And btw., how did the wife able to drive up and enter the casino garage?, given there's already so much commotion going on at the place and would've been in lockdown.

Trust me, I'm really not here to give this a bad review, I'm actually sitting in my toilet typing this. just wanted to point out what I came here for and that is the incons..........=
