Reassembling the old team, Crunch comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book, but the successful heist leads to another far riskier plan devised by Nicky.

When Francie (disguised as Amish) is transporting Crunch and Nicky across the Canadian border, he says to the border patrol agent that he is in a play, "Witness, the musical. With an exclamation mark." This is a reference to Witness (1985), a neo-noir crime thriller starring Harrison Ford and centered around an Amish family. See more »

If you love heist movies like me then you will love this one...without spoiling, it has all the ingredients for a good heist movie: protagonist is hard done by antagonist; trust is burnt; work together again for a big score; can they trust each other again? But what I like about this movies is the intricate story...there are things afoot and they're not twelve inches...Can you work it out? I had a rough idea without working out the details but I still loved it.... works much better than Now You See Me in my opinion...has a B grade movie feel but an A grade kick in the pants at the end...I do like Kurt Russell and Matt Dillon. And it is great to see Kenneth Welsh...A very Good Movie...
