What it's about:

A notorious group of criminals continue to baffle police by pulling off perfectly executed bank robberies. They are in and out like clockwork, leaving no evidence behind and laying low between heists. But, when they attempt to pull off one last job with more money at stake than ever before, the crew may find their plans interrupted by a hardened detective who's hell-bent on solving the case.

What the critics thought:

"Wall-to-wall music, glossy handheld camerawork and frantic editing all conspire to try and make this seem a lot more exciting than the relentlessly unimaginitive script deserves."
 - Phelim O'Neill, The Guardian

"Conceived and executed with just enough skill and flair to make you wish it were better."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times

"A Michael Mann-ish heist thriller with a pulse-pounding foot chase and some terrific stunt work offsetting its hackneyed plot and dialogue."
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post

Everyone is after something.
