Michael: 50 keys cuts into 200. Going rate for a cut key in Manhattan is 32Gs. That means after a million to us, that's still 5.4 million to you.

User Reviews

Not bad I guess!
21 November 2019 | by timucin_savasSee all my reviews

The film was a pleasant surprise. Nothing new here but the camera work and action scenes were marvelous. Although the plot is not original the story was fine with good editing. Interesting take on "Manhattan island", however the script could have been better and acting was average at times. Nice Friday night flick!
