||An original screenplay
||A bunch of super smart thieves undertake a heist prompted by the return of one of their number from jail, who is in some way involved with a Russian gang. They plan the operation unaware of the involvement of the Russians or of the fact that a detective is on their trail. Will they finally run out of luck?
||Shooting, explosions men doing stuff in ski masks. Some discusssions in smoke filled rooms, and in the police station. A lengthy chase through the streets on foot. No sex, only minimal alcohol consumption and talk about drug taking.
||Lets get it straight here – this epic made money. But surely they sat down one afternoon and scoped out the plot, and then added the subplots the following morning. Oh and the ending “well we’ll think that out when we come to it”.Among the many clunking clichés, the detective who is supposed to be on a day out with his young daughter chasing the bad guys! Give us a break.
