Does it have a wide release? I didn't see it playing at the one theater I checked.

This wasn't very good...and it was 45 minutes too long. I didn't need any of the family stuff with Butler's character.

A lot of the stuff in the movie didn't make sense either. Spoilers to come because I know Crckrjack and Corey are seeing it this weekend, so I want them to comment.

-It was treated like a huge reveal that the crew all met while playing football and while serving in the military, why did that matter? Butler knew within minutes who did the heist, why did it matter how they met?
-Merrimen teaching Donnie how to use a gun, wasn't Donnie also ex-military?
-The biggest flaw in the movie by far was their entire plan. Stealing the armored truck, fake heist, doing the tunnel, etc. All of that was completely pointless if the air vent from the bathroom went straight to the money! Why didn't he just start in the bathroom and climb to the money?! The armored truck wouldn't even have been necessary then! So stupid!
-The twist was also dumb. As soon as they showed the switcheroo with the dumpsters it was pretty obvious that Merrimen wasn't the one running the show.
-No police officer would ever engage in a firefight between 30 cars stuck in a traffic jam. I don't care if they were clearing out the people, they would not have done that.


Pablo Schreiber is so good at disappearing into roles. The guy playing Merrimen is Pornstache from Orange is the New Black and the Leprechaun from American Gods.

I agree that this movie was too long.

I don't think he was.

They needed to be able to lookout for the guy doing the switch. If they weren't there to lookout for him chances of being caught: Near 100%.

Yeah, probably. they should have made the bad guys make the first move.

All in all i thought it was a great Heat remake. The last fight scene made it worth it for me. Very cool. One of the better heist movies, imo.

I agree the last gun fight was entertaining, but completely nonsensical.

Right. in heat they clear the streets and everything. if the bad guys in den of thieves had shot at the cops before they got out of their vehicle then it would have made more sense.
