(an undercover cop and his partner risk their careers to cash in on a one time robbery). As mentioned before, this is like a reverse remake of reservoir dogs since it's foreign, but it's better than that movie since it's faster paced, a lot more violent, has more action, and you actually see the botched robbery (they rob an armored truck in this one though). the heist itself is an awesome scene, and it would've been cool if the police showed up and skroef opened fire on them and a bloody shootout ensued between the group of robbers and the cops. anyway, avenged is a great crime thriller full of hardcore action and suspense that heist movie junkies will definitely like. something I wanted to point out is that it had somewhat of a very weird color filter, but then again, lock, stock, and two smoking barrels had one too so it didn't bother me. I'd say avenged is my third favorite heist flick with firestorm and the town being in first and second place
