Goofs

In the diner where Ray brought his son Will they receive their order overly quickly It couldn't even have been able to start being made in that short of time. Also when she brings them their plates, with Ray's order she says it's a burger with no onions when you heard him asking for it he just asked for a cheeseburger he never made extra specifications incidentally when you see it it does have cheese on it. When Ray goes to put ketchup on it you see him with the bottle in his left hand and almost about to pop the cap with his left and the next shot from the back you you hear the pop of it opening but it ends up emerging from the right side like he was doing it the exact opposite way, switched hands incongruently. When shot back from the front his plate is turned 180 degrees on the table and he's holding the top bun randomly in his left hand when it already been taken off previously. See more »

Will Cutter: I just never see you guys hug, or say you love each other.
Joseph Cutter: Yeah, well I don't do that. But he knows.
Will Cutter: You sure?
Joseph Cutter: I didn't tell your grandmother either. But she knew. Why? Because words don't mean shit in this world, Will. It's what a person does for you that counts.

Hmmm, it's like, alright.. OK?
1 May 2015 | by Finfrosk86See all my reviews

Saw a trailer for this movie here on IMDb through no fault of my own, and when I got the chance to see it, I did. I got the feeling that this wasn't the biggest movie in history, and it isn't either.

I paint, and I like me a good heist-movie from time to time, and John Travolta is a decent actor, so I gave it a whirl.

Now, this movie isn't super bad, nor is it super good. It's a little under mediocre. The acting is pretty uninspired in some parts, and lacks energy, but it's all over OK. Travolta does an OK job, his charm shines through a little, but not a lot.

The movie has some slight action sprinkled in, actually a teeny bit of violence, but nothing much. It's like, almost exciting, and the heist part is alright. All over it's OK.

I'm not one to talk about plot holes, but there is one here that bothered me a little. All in all the movie takes no chances and is just OK. I was mildly entertained for most of the time.
