Like a 70's heist movie, well acted, but ultimately boring
I have to mark this as a failure, as I thought at the end that if I would have paid to see it I would have gotten angry. That doesn't mean it's a bad movie. It is well acted and the mood of it is kind of what it should have been. However the slightly outdated plot and lack of any notable surprises or character development makes it a pointless film. Also, a personal gripe of mine, it is a movie written and directed by the same guy, so there was no one relevant to point out that the script is boring as hell.
It felt like someone found a script of a movie from the 70's that was not translated to a film and decided to make it with some of the actors that caught the eye lately, like McGregor, Thwaites and Vikander and who had a little time on their hands.
