Automobile windshields do not break that way. (Side and back windows, made of tempered glass, do break that way, but not nearly that easily.) Windshields are made of triplex safety glass, with two layers of glass with a clear adhesive layer between. When windshield glass breaks, it breaks like regular window glass, but the layer in between keeps the pieces from flying apart. See more »

Nice low budget action flick
5 November 2015 | by jackmeatSee all my reviews

SPOILER: My quick rating 5,3/10. A pretty straight forward action movie with a really kewl looking robbery to start off with. When the main character (Olga Kurylenko) is accidentally seen on a supposed diamond heist, she must run from those that hired them to steal the diamonds, or was it for the diamonds at all? This leads to a cat and mouse game between them and does involve some interesting action sequences along with a solid female lead to be reckoned with. Not really anything new but enough flare to hold your attention, especially for a limited budget flick. I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel to this (the ending sorta leaves the door open) since this movie did well with what it had to work with.
