Iraq War vet turned armoured-car guard Ty Hackett (Columbus Short) is feeling the financial screws tighten, so he agrees to join in on a US$42 million heist cooked up by his co-worker and godfather, Michael (Matt Dillon). What distinguishes this robbery-gone-wrong flick is the authentically blue-collar vibe, as well as its stellar ensemble cast and terrific direction from Vacancy’s Nimród Antal. The film ultimately grants too much of an easy out to Hackett, who has a crisis of conscience after things take a bloody turn. But Antal and his performers’ pure B-movie esprit is undeniable.
