On paper, it was supposed to be a simple, in-and-out bank heist in the heart of the bustling city centre. However, there is no such thing as a foolproof plan. Now, with a bag crammed with cash, a trail of dead bodies, and nearly every police officer in town after them, gang leader, Sabri, and his two violent partners-in-crime find themselves cornered. And, forced to think up a desperate, last-minute plan to stay alive, the ruthless criminals resort to adding kidnapping to the already heavy charges. As a result, a young brunette, an unfortunate father, and his gravely ill four-year-old daughter become hostages, as the trigger-happy gangsters engage in a frantic escape across the country over the course of a single day. But in this hopeless fight for survival, nothing is what it seems. Written by Nick Riganas

A bit bland
11 February 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Now I haven't seen the "original" (1974, title can be found here on IMDb), but I did quite like the movie they made here. It kind of works , even if of course some characters could've "acted" differently for a different outcome .. but what fun would that have been? Also it does all make sense in a weird ... sense.

The acting is more than decent and the suspense is pretty good, and might be able to keep you on the edge of your seat. You do want to know where this is going. The end might be a deal breaker for some (or rather the resolution in general), but it was fitting to the movie and how it developed ... Since I haven't seen the original, which people seem to really like (and where the characters worked better, especially one that is really crucial), I can't comment on that other than to say that it does feel a bit cheap and bland. You can still have fun with it, especially if you're unaware of the other movie I reckon
