Pretty cool telling of a true-story heist of an armored car cash depot in NYC. It was Hollywooded-up a bit still pretty interesting (especially the interview with the real-life criminal).

This is the first "based on true story" movie that I am not pleased of. The plot plus the acting (especially Liam Hemsworth) could've been improved ..... tremendously What a sleeper!

I had high hopes for this film because I like all of the actors but it was misleading and boring in my opinion.

What a disappointment. The so called acting in this was pathetic. Feel free to miss this one....wish I had.

$12 million Biggest hiest of the time true story where it was so hard to believe that a dishwasher and security guard could pull off. Still $$$ missing that has never been seen again by Empire State or cops. It was fun to hear how it all REALLY went down in special features.

What a waste of time and money.

This movie is supposed to be based on a true story. The only thing slightly true about it is that there was a heist. All the characters are too stupid to pull off this robbery. It was hard to watch. And the money just disappears. I think this was supposed to be a comedy but I'm not sure. Poorly written with a bad story line. A waste of time.

British made and based loosely (very) on a true December 1982 robbery of a poorly run Armored Car Co in NYC. Take the unlikely plot and characters with a mole hill of salt. (see AP report on the verdict of the heist trial in summary.)
