Comedy Crime thriller lacks bite.
5 December 2014 | by mac-gintySee all my reviews

A petty criminal (Tell) steals some money from his bungling brother and their gang of bank robbers. His wife is furious that he leads the cops back to their home and promptly shoots him, wounding him severely. Tell manages to hide the money. The film looks on as various people all try to get that money from him.

This movie has an excellent cast with every role having an actor you will recognize from TV or film. The performances are uniformly good and it is well shot. It just seems to be lacking something. It feels like a movie from the 1990s. The humor has a light touch and the action is well handled. Worth a watch but with that cast it could have been so much better.
