mctiernan (predator, die hard) directs this so-so heist movie. mctiernan peaked in the late 80s with die hard and bottomed out 14 years later after directing the awful remake of rollerball. there are nicely photographed parts in the film and the story is good enough, but there’s nothing really enticing about it. rene russo shows a lot of skin and the ending was creative enough. through much of the film, though, i found the twists and turns to be relatively obvious. pretty average.
