This is the story of a bank robbery goes wrong, and when they say it goes wrong... they really mean it goes wrong! Cartel money. Serial killer in the bank. The brother to the bank robber a security guard working in the bank, who also happens to be working for the cartel. One on his team ready to betray him. His driver on cocaine. A detective without a burrito. What? Yeah it gets crazy fast. Though it all starts off with somewhat of a comical undertone, it gets serious fast as well, and the element of surprise is always lurking around the corner. It's a mesh of horror, thriller, and regular action. So many sacrifices... but it's all in the eye of the beholder, isn't it?
The script was fantastic, and the twists not bad. The shooting was unfortunately very fake-looking, and the special effects bad overall, though the blood a gory exception. They make it gritty, and grimy, and turn it into a real thriller after all, but bad special effects and some B-class acting brings it down a bit. Most of the actors weren't half bad, but I feel they could've switched some of them for others. The filming wasn't bad overall, but in the end you still get that B-movie vibe from it. What's the secret; what's the flaw? Too few outsiders and onlookers? Too slow pace? Just a bit more professionalism and it'd really have been on another level. Blockbuster level. As it was: great idea, but unfortunately far from a perfect performance.
rated 3/5: not bad
