Elevator Pitch When banks begin to be hit by an efficient team of robbers, wearing scary masks, the Cincinnati homicide squad and the FBI both get on the case. The robbers show concern for injured bystanders while at the same time terminating members of the bank management, confusing the investigators. And the president of the bank does not seem overly concerned. What is going on?
Content The bank robberies take place, people are interviewed, the FBI agent shouts a lot at the detectives, and there are a number of firefights with handguns and automatic weapons. There is a raid on some drug distributors which involves a bit of female nudity and abit of drug taking, but no sex.
A View I started off being hopeful about this movie since the initial bank raids are very effective, but gradually things become more confused, resulting in most of the critics, and me, not having much idea of what is going on. One of those outings where only the writers have much idea of what is happening, so I would not recommend it, despite an exciting start.
