The bus had to have been driving in one direction down the interstate for a minimum of three hours or more, since they were picked up before 4:00 AM and there was bright overhead sunshine when they finally stopped for refueling. Yet officer Kris was sent from the origin city with a gas truck after they requested fuel and was already waiting for them on the bridge. See more »

There are very few actors that are better than Robert De Niro today, but apparently this doesn't mean he always picks great roles. The film seems to be an Ocean's Eleven knockoff, with the plot revolving around a heist of a steamboat casino so one man (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) could raise money for his dying daughter, and De Niro plays the wicked casino owner. The plot sounds intriguing, but the execution was a joke. Most directors at least make an attempt when they use police scenes to make them as realistic as possible, but the actions of the police alone made this movie laughable. The scenes were so far fetched, which is fine, unless you are trying to pull off a believable film, that I could barely make it through the 1 hour and 32 minutes running time. I'm sure Jeffrey Dean Morgan took this role to star alongside De Niro, but why De Niro took it, I'll never know. There are many things to discuss about this movie, but I can't without spoiling it. So I will end by saying this: for the love of movies and film, do not see this movie. There are far too many decent movies to see, even halfway decent ones, that you could better spend your time watching.
