Synopsis: A retired safe cracker is recruited by a young conman to return to the "business" for a million dollar heist.

Reaction: It has quite a b-movie feel. It's not bad, but nothing really stands out to me here. And if it were released today, I don't see any reason it would be rated R. Likely a PG-13 from what I saw. Granted, there did appear to be a few sections that were incomplete in my copy. I figured they were just a result of a bad print.

Personal Rating: 4/10
