At around three minutes, The Pope (Robert De Niro) says "bat's not always the answer". In The Untouchables (1987), Al Capone (Robert De Niro) pulls out a baseball bat at a dinner party and suddenly beats one of his men to death. See more »
After the tire on the bus is repaired and it departs, the back window of the low floor bus (the one with the side windows at different heights) was superimposed on the back of the high floor bus (the one with the side windows at equal heights). The superimposed image moves around as the bus pulls out. See more »

This is a rather typical action thriller starring a skinny Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Robert De Niro. Kate Bosworth is the 3rd pre-title name but she has a really small part in this.
Mixed martial artist Gina Carano is also present but underused here having only a few seconds of martial art. TV's Mark-Paul Gosselaar has also a surprise role and he is giving s good performance. That can't be said about De Niro who - despite the fact that his character has many layers - gives a sub-par and boring performance.
Anyway, as I said the plot is rather typical about a ...Heist, (obviously). There are some shooting and car chases and roadblocks, a couple of twists, a little bit of melodrama...
It's not bad. It gets better as it progresses and with a Hollywood type conclusion that most people will find satisfying, although somehow unbelievable.
