I was impressed with the effort given in this movie. The story is well thought out with good twists and turns. I am always a fan of robbery movies and this 2010 movie delivers. Gordon Cozier sums it up when the crew is deciding on whether or not to do a job. He says “We’re takers gentlemen, that’s what we do…..we take.” The opening sequence shows the bold moves this crew is willing to perform in order to execute a robbery. There is a very good chase scene with Chris Brown and Matt Dillon shines as a cop who is on the job at all times, even when his little girl is with him. Hayden Christensen gives a surprisingly good performance as A.J. and I have to admit I was impressed. Paul Walker is surprisingly good as John Rahway and the supporting cast delivers with equal precision. This was a fun ride.
