The story follows three young men who are willing to do anything to reach their dreams, even to prostitute themselves to gain money for the bussines they want. They obviously get themselves into trouble and various funny situations.
A cop with a connection to the criminal underworld finds his secret life exposed when he and his partner are caught stealing cocaine from a powerful drug dealer, a move that puts his son's life in jeopardy.
On paper, it was supposed to be a pure and simple bank heist; however, everything about this daring robbery in the heart of the bustling city went awry. Now, with a bag crammed with cash, a trail of dead bodies, and nearly every cop in town after them, the agitated gang leader, Sabri, and his two partners in crime are forced to think up a desperate last-minute plan to stay alive--even if it means to add kidnapping to the already heavy charges. In the heat of the moment, a young brunette, an unfortunate father, and his gravely-ill four-year-old daughter become the trigger-happy criminals' hostages, as the six of them engage in a frantic escape across the country over the course of a single day. But, in a hopeless fight for survival, nothing is what it seems..Written by
Rabid Dogs, or Enragés, (2016) is a presentable but utterly inferior remake. While this remake, like most, turned out to be pretty pointless- there were still new elements brought to the table. The basic story, when stripped down to its very core, is the same as the original. They add a few different twists and turns throughout the ride. Still, the original remains superior: so simpler yet so much better. All of the newly added plot points really do nothing that would raise this film to be anything other than mediocre. At least the action is better in this one, but that doesn't effect the overall impact of the story. I'll give credit where credit is due: this film is not nearly as cheesy as the original. Nothing was laughably over-the-top. If I were to forget the original and call this an "original film", I would say that it's just another mediocre kidnap-based movie. It may not be as useless as other remakes, but it definitely does not elevate the source material.
