I have to be honest I was not expecting much from this movie. The trailer for it just did not get me all that excited. It just felt like it was something that had been done before. The movie follows a war vet who has found himself a little short on cash. He is caring for his younger brother, trying to pay for a house, and just trying to survive. His friends at the armor company that he works for think they have found the perfect plan to get rich quick. They figure they can rob themselves and blame it on getting hijacked. As always the best laid plans never seem to work out. I have to say I was surprised that the action was as good as it was. It would seem that it would have been pretty limited but does have a couple pretty intense scenes. I do have a few problems with the story. Several elements are almost so unbelievable that you would think this was a sci-fi film. The acting for the most part is pretty good. The story like I said does have a few plot holes and it also seemed really short. The movie seemed like it took forever to get going and then it is just over. Overall it was much better than I expected and with that for the most part I enjoyed the film, even against all the plot holes.
