The only reason I gave this movie a chance is because I insist on seeing every movie with Bruce Willis. Love most of this work. But this is one he clearly did for the paycheck, because he put no effort into this role and had a total of maybe 10 minutes of screen time. Just a big name meant to pull in poor saps like me. There is nothing original or inspiring about this C-movie action flick. Michael Chiklis plays a veteran bank robber who in the opening minutes of a "perfectly planned" heist gone wrong, gets knocked to the ground. When he awakens 10 minutes later (with no bruising to account for the head trauma), the loot is gone and his brother is dead. The rest of the movie is him trying to figure out how it all went wrong. The dialogue is probably the worst thing about this movie. Wooden, unoriginal, poorly written, will make you laugh out loud at the "serious" parts. Second worst is Meadow Williams, whose utter lack of acting talent is exacerbated by the amount of botox in her forehead, the combination of which makes her utterly incapable of expressing any emotion convincingly whatsoever. The choice of Lydia Hull as the badass fixer-upper/cleaner was equally poor casting, though thankfully she's barely in the movie. And then all the cliches. Guys with machine guns who couldn't hit the ground if they tried, shooting guns with one hand, walking toward the camera in sunglasses in slow motion with an explosion behind you, the "surprise" villain at the end monologuing and providing exposition for the viewers who fell asleep for the first 80 minutes. As for the "plot twist" reveal of the villain, it would have been surprising had I not been able to call it about 15 minutes into the movie. This is a good movie to have on in the background while you're doing other things. If you lower your expectations to ground level, you will be barely disappointed.
