This is one of those movies that I kind of feel bad rating so low on my Flickchart, because it's actually a decent little crime movie, but nothing about it really stands out to me. Crime movies have to really go above and beyond to sell themselves to me so that I enjoy them, and this one stayed pretty middle-of-the-road. If you like the genre, it's probably worth checking out, but it didn't do much for me so I can't say a lot more about it.
