Well-executed dark comedy/hostage thriller, just needed a little more depth
10 May 2019 | by joelbrandt2See all my reviews

Strikes a great balance between high-stakes hostage thrills and quirky character comedy, led by Hawke's notable turn as the volatile and eccentric "(just call me) The Outlaw", who clashes with straight-laced cops and forms an odd bond with his captors (see the excellent Dylan-backed montage of pear-eating in the vault). A barely-there epilogue makes you wish more time was spent on his background and motivations though, as well as on the event's aftermath for Rapace's enigmatic Bianca.
