Went for the eye candy stayed for the movie! The storyline was well played and flowed well. TI could use a few acting lessons. From beginning to end it was well acted, scenes made sense. I love action but with all the sex and language its hard to get to the point but this film was well made without all the extra bull. If you like action you'll like this film. I'm a mob movie fan and the ending had that kind of feel. Paul Walker and Idris Alba made the movie strong. Chris Brown and T.I. are still making the transition from music to film but overall they played their roles well. Characters were believable. I won passes to see it at a sneak peak. Paying to see it again with my husband!

88 out of 100 The exciting, action-packed, fast-paced heist drama/thriller that entertains only the mind and eyes, not intelligence but it's still a blast.

I would call this the late summer surprise. Didn't get all the hype probably underestimated. I've read some of the nay -say but don't get swayed take the time to go and enjoy a very decent heist film. The cast makes the movie and this one definitely carries the chemistry to make this a sleeper hit. While heist movies have been done so many times you'll always want to compare however I just like to see how a new generation of actors take on roles that have them move to that next level in their field (acting). I must say I like their growth and that includes Chris Brown (that chase was off the chain) and props to T.I. who I keep trying to find fault but he holds his own although he did appear a little inexperienced against these other true actors. Hopefully word of mouth will carry this up the box office ladder just as word of mouth for the Last exorcism should see it slip off ladder.

I have to admit I am a Paul Walker fan, and since he was in the movie I just had to go see it. I kept coming across people who were doubting the movie was going to be any good, boy were they wrong!! The movie is absolutely amazing, action packed with chase scenes and shootouts the story line was well played out, not confusing at all. All of the actors did a wonderful job. Throughout the entire movie I was on the edge of my seat, if you like action movies then check this one out you won't be disappointed. I will definitely be seeing it again :)

this was in league with 2012 as one of the funniest movies that wasn't meant to be so. The plot was not well planned out. The acting was downright appalling. This movie was so cliche that i almost threw up, though that might be because i had a wee bit too much candy also. And to make the previews look like it didn't totally suck, they put a famous rapper in it, who plays a complete a-hole who can barely speak a word of proper English and sounds like he has verbal diarrhea.
All in all, don't waste money or time on this one people, even if you don't find the other movies appealing, trust me, you can't get more unappealing than this train-wreck.
