When Ben Affleck is released from prison he poses as his dead cell mate to get his pen pal girlfriend played by Charlize Theron. It turns out she’s got a psychotic brother played by Gary Sinise that wants Affleck to help him with robbing a casino.
The writing is a bit up and down. There are a few twists but the first one is easily predictable. Then you expect the rest of the story to be a letdown but it actually gets better. There’s plenty of tension between Affleck and Sinise. Theron isn’t just the worried girlfriend. The plot turns out to be more than just the heist but what the main characters will do to each other. Overall it turns out to be a pretty good crime flick.
