Crime thrillers are either your thing or not so much. This starts off pretty good and continues on a good track. It may be predictable but that still doesn't take too much away from the suspension. Of course the viewer can identify with the main character, even though his relationship with his brother is not the best anyone can have.

It may not fully get all of the action you could expect from it though, because it does feel like you've seen certain things before. But that's always a problem with a very strong start, even when a movie sort of keeps a certain pace like this one. It's entertaining enough and there are enough things to love about it - if you like the genre that is
