Goofs

When Ray beats up Finn in the bathroom of the diner it hardly looks like Ray punches him with any much force under his arm. And when it shows the outside of the door he only may have had time for a couple more punches at the most. Later when he goes to see Keegan at his place Finn opens the door with a huge Red mark around his eye and mouth which I don't find he could have inflicted that damage with what happened it looked unbelievable.

Quotes

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.
