A cohort of young, green thieves comes together, concocting an intricate scheme to rob a high-rise apartment building along the coast. The group sets their plan in motion amidst an onslaught of forceful weather, which continues to escalate as they perform their task. However, their plot hits a snag when an aging police officer (Mel Gibson) arrives on the scene to help the tenants of the building evacuate in the face of an oncoming hurricane. Directed by Michael Polish, co-starring Emile Hirsch and Kate Bosworth.~Maggie Sadler
It was ok slow in a lot of places, didn't flow well, left the guy upstairs way too long. Instead screwed around with fixing the police guy caused she liked him
Main character dies too early in the movie, could have left him totally out of the movie.
A horde of valuable art work hidden in plain view. A group of high end thieves trying to steal it during a Hurricane. Two lone cops with help from a retired officer and everything goes wrong with some help from mother nature.
I ask myself who would bother writing this... I ask myself if the script was borrowed from another Hurricane Heist movie... I ask myself why was Mel Gibson doing this...
After seeing the movie, I asked myself why did Mel Gibson even bother doing this... if he not have been in the movie, it would still be the same movie. Huge actor of Gibson's caliber making no impact in the movie whatsoever, it disturbed me.
When you come down to it... this movie could've/should've been great, if only...
If only they spent more money on it... if only Mel Gibson had a stronger more resolute role... if only the established personalities were not just cartoon characters... if only they used the island of Puerto Rico and its residents as more than background setting... if only the cat was more than a political joke... if only there were sharks in the streets, you had a Hurricane, and there were floods, why not add sharks... ha? Why?
This movie deserves a star for Mel Gibson playing wheelhouse role and one star for the cat.
My wife and I were not able to see this movie in our local movie theater and am happy we were able to purchase it at a good price from BestBuy and am looking forward to watching it as often as we want.
