Trivia

The 400 oz. gold bar shown in the beginning would cost over half a million US dollars. The amount of cash required would be much more than the two small bags shown. Each stack of 100 dollar bills is 10k. 50 of these would be needed. That would require a briefcase. See more »

What do you people want? This is solid
23 November 2019 | by colinwohlrabSee all my reviews

The fact that this movie is slow adds to the style. If you want a fast action movie watch something from the 80's 90's or early 2000's. If you cannot see that movies have changed a lot since then I'm not exactly sure why you are even bothering to read this review.

The new style of filmmaking is less obvious. We live in a world where more people than you realize do not want to be involved anymore, so we turn to movies and television or just media in general. The big studio productions are wasting all the money, energy and talent into creating obnoxious fantasies of real life that do not represent much at all. I, for one, am sick of that. I grew up on big budget action movies and now every time I see a new one I get bored. We need more small movies like this to take a chance by not pretending it is something it is not, an interesting theme to the movie as well.

It is a very direct approach to filmmaking. Take the story and put it up on the screen. Don't worry about framing everything perfectly and getting 20 guys to fiddle with electric cables and lights. Can we see the actor? Great! Just make an action drama with few elaborate set pieces and don't try to trick people by fancy spectacles. The way the filmmakers combined shots on the streets of New York City with alleyway driving car stunt stuff (not a New York City thing in the least) was very well done and it didn't necessarily take me out of the experience.

The only thing that did take me out of the experience was the music. I hate to say anything specifically bad but it sounded like it was from one of the Jason Borne movies. Just very much out of place.

It is a very solid movie but you won't get any kind of mind-blowing experience here but in a way there is a straightforward method of storytelling here that I think is great. Obviously could've pushed itself further but as I was saying the new trend is for less sensational movies so this type of low budget thing isn't going to be able to afford to take those big risks. I would recommend.
