Some clever stuff, some gaping plot holes
Verified purchase
An FBI vehicle with radios that work on local police frequencies. Two FBI agents total a car, and it's full of bullet holes. No investigation, no reports, they're just driving a new car the next day. It never occurs to the lead agent to check the ballistics on either agent's gun against the bullets that killed the supervisor. The idea that the thief is going to get an easy deal just by turning in the money; he violated numerous federal laws, no single FBI agent is going to be able to guarantee the deal he wants. It would take the US Attorney General to do that. The background that's just a little too hollywood sad. If you can get past the plot holes and unbelievable actions by the FBI and the girlfriend (what, he's the complete opposite of what you thought and you can get past it after a single conversation?). Neeson does a credible job of portraying the character, although managing to live all those years without once tapping into the money is a bit of a stretch. It's worth watching, but you have to suspend your disbelief a bit more than in most similar films.

This might be one of his best films. Great cast and a feel good movie even if you lost your job like I did and Xmas is only a few days away.

I'm usually too lazy to hand out reviews but boy the suspense builds nice and steady and just a great crew of actors! The female actress I remembered from that 90's TV show called , "THE DREW CARRY SHOW." She still looks good after all these years.

Sorry I found this movie boring. I had high hopes too. Wish I hadn't bought it, but that is on me. The premise is interesting in the "bad guy wanting to be good and the good guys are not good" but it just wasn't good.

Great Movie

I really liked this movie. I do not normally root for the bad guy but Liam Neeson does a great job as the bad guy and the movies has great action scenes. If you want to watch a good action movie, this is a good one.

So many plot holes, we were laughing when watching it
Verified purchase
It passed the time, but other than that, the writing was funny at several points in the movie, but this wasn't a comedy...
Spoilers below:
1. Why did his Agent Ramos wear a wire? That whole scene at the end was unnecessary, and of course, he gets killed... Ramos could have just testified against Agent Nivens and put him away while cutting a deal for himself. No wire necessary...
2. Did the bad cop Agent Nivens really think he could just run and get away with $3m with no plan?
3. How could FBI agents be so stupid that they didn't notice security cameras at the storage facility?
4. How is it in 2021 that security footage isn't saved to the cloud?
5. Agent Nivens, your house was just blown up by a munitions expert, but somehow you think your car which is in the driveway is safe and then you jump in and drive away. Really?
6. If Tom Carter invested some of that $9m, he wouldn't have to work at all and could return all of it, but of course, he kept it in a storage facility in cash...
7. Okay FBI agents, you steal $9m, oh but wait, you forgot to count it and it's only $3m, really ? How dumb are you guys?
8. Agent Sam Baker, you walk into the hotel room, you notice Agent Nivens has his gun drawn for no apparent reason, what does your training tell you to do? Hmmmm, "stand in front of him so he can shoot me" sounds good.

There are at least 10 more major plot holes but I'm tired of typing. The fact that this movie has 4.5 stars tells me reviews are getting deleted or reviewers are so hungry for a new movie during Covid that their standards have plummeted to the very bottom.
