Oh, boy: another violent but hip crime drama about a heist gone wrong, featuring a trigger-happy psycho (played by director Sutherland in his feature debut), an undercover cop in jeopardy, gratuitous pop-culture references, and badass dudes firing automatics from both hands.

Believe me, you’ll want to cry. D
