A definite copy of the Italian Job, but with some small changes. The characters act a lot more gangster, and it is an almost all black cast for the robbery team with the exception of Paul Walker and Matt Dillon, who fit right in with the rest. It dosen't differ much from Italian Job, and besides the cast, the big differences are how these men will kill for the money, the hiest dosen't go at all according to plan, and in the end only two survive. The movie also focuses on two cops who are out on the job to find these men, and their story is pretty good, and without it the movie would have been definatly missing something important. Most characters do seem to be missing on depth, but later in the movie it is kinda resolved. The action scenes are not great, but not bad, as the sound effects are cheap and overused. The last battles in the apartment against the Russians was good, with the light music playing over most of the battle sounds and the opposing sides firing through the walls, and very little if any blood was shown. The next small shootout where two of them walked out in front of a blockade of cops and where gunned down follows the same idea as the other one with the light music and is a very good scene. But all in all it is a copy of another movie, and even in this film it is said that they should go "Italian job" on the armored truck, and the movie plays out very similar to that film with the hole blown into the subway that the truck falls through, the betrayal of their friend, and the hacking of the lights at the intersections. So no points for originality although some stuff was changed, some scenes were well and good, and the action was ok. Ok movie, to bad it didn't have a different idea behined it all.
