      The Biggest Heist in History

      If your looking for a low brow type of movie that kinda-sorta falls under the radar and you look at the cover see who's in it, who it may be directed by etc, and you hesitate on the blind buy for the price is within reason given the lead actor's. Well Empire State is that type of film. It's not a classic heist flick by any stretch, but it does offer an interesting historic view on a situation that went down in New York City circa 1982. The characters are all a bunch of cliche's for movie stuff, but these dudes where real folk. This movie is more of a starring flick for new timer Liam Hemsworth as The Rock has a small but important supporting role, while Emma Roberts pops in a few glamorous cameo's for good measure. The story moves along well and the performances are decent for the weak script, but the Eddie character you'll want to shoot in the head yourself after watching how stupid can one guy be. Bottom line I got my $8 dollars worth. Lionsgate blu offers up a standard good PQ & AQ presentation. Natural colors and a clean image. Audio is a nice 5.1 DTS track crisp and clear. A small bundle of extra's and a title that could essentially be billed as a guilty pleasure.....

      Sorry! My previous comments were attached to the wrong movie. I found this movie interesting, but wish I saved my money in purchase cost. I only recommend renting this flick. The Rock seem to be there for the pay and why even put the girl in at all. The better acting should of gone to the partner of the main actor.

      I love all of Dwayne Johnson's movies and I bought this movie to see him. He doesn't show up until the end of the movie and wasn't in it long enough to put his face on the cover and say its one of his movies, which implies he will be in the movie more than a half hour.

      Not a bad movie but not great. The cover is misleading and makes it look like there is a lot more action than there is. It also is set in the 70's but the cover looks like it is current day. For a movie based on a true story it was pretty good.

      I understand the story. Line took place in the seventies but I felt they used equipment to shoot with that was also from the seventies it didn't look as professional as other movies do they really lost alot from this

      It was a great movie, I've ever seen so far from Dwayne John beside the Fast n Furious. I will recommend this from friends and relatives to get one so they can see the exciting movie.

      It was a good movie but I didn't think it was going to be based on an older theme. The Rock looked very old and the actors just seemed like they were from one of the movie they play on Sci-fi.

      The only good thing in this movie was the Rock, the plot and most of the other acting was poor. I would not recommend this movie to anyone even if they are a Rock fan.
