This is a pure crime flick from Belgium, as was LE FIDELE, another crime film which was released last month. It is partly inspired by actual events that occurred thirty years ago, the Brabant killers. Only partly inspired, not the whole story...Well, you deal here with a powerful action packed crime flick, very inspired from HEAT too, especially heist sequences. But not a HEAT rip-off either. It remains a more than adequate B movie, but too short, as were COLT 45 and BRAQUEURS, also under 85 minutes length features. The tale of a bunch of high scale bank robbers who get set-up in a political affair involving corrupted politicians, minister, shadow underworld who intends to blame the gangsters in the murder of a judge. No lost pace in this accurate, taut crime action film where Olivier Gourmet shines, as usual. I repeat, that's not HEAT but it's fine to watch.

If you follow crime movies since a while, you can remember another one which was released back in 2011, called DE FORCE, also directed by an ex con named Frank Henry, with a story not the same as this one, but the same kind, very dark, bloody, violent and unpredictable, with also female cop involved in an unforeseeable way. Yes there are many similar elements between those two features speaking of armored truck heists and offbeat lead gangster characters.
