The film was accidentally released by Sony on the PlayStation Network for free whilst it was still playing in cinemas. Although the mistake was quickly spotted - and the film pulled from PlayStation - it was downloaded thousands of times. See more »

Just a bad movie all round that dosen't know what it wants to be.
Alas despite a top-notch cast of Jean Reno, Matt Dillon and the
normally reliable Lawrence Fishburne can't save this supposed "Action
flick" of becoming a tasteless turkey. A basic story where security
guards for an armoured truck company decide to steal millions of
dollars of money but a newbie panics and it's splits up the team
leading to problems. The script is terrible and very clichéd and even
though the movie for the first half hour tries for character
development (as it tried to be a sort of drama but fails miserably as
it isn't touching in the slightest) it just leads to pointless talk
about inconsequential things and as a result you just get bored. The
film was far to slow in getting started and the action, well there was
little of as it became more and more far fetched and actors who
couldn't act. I was quite disappointed with this film particularly with
Lawrence Fishburne as he was outstanding as Morpheous in the Matrix, as
Ray Langston in CSI and great in a small cameo role in the recent
predators. Though he did try better than the other actors the script
didn't help. This is a movie which is bad in all departments and in the
end I didn't care about the characters and what happened to them. This
was an hour and a half but it felt like three hours. A bad movie all
round and one to avoid.
