This movie was pretty awful. I could barely force myself to finish it. No suspense. At all. Literally boring and too over the top. And I couldn't suspend disbelief for this - two characters, who clearly don't know how to steal money without being idiots and blasting it to the world (everything they do is idiotic all the way through, and they almost get their friend and her baby killed), two competing antagonists that aren't smart enough to get their money back (almost bumbling idiots, but taken way too seriously), AND a fucking dirty cop that is there to "save the day" and not doing literally anything that a police officer would ever do in real life.

The story was supposed to be super gripping and suspenseful, but from the get go, I found it EXTREMELY boring. You watch this crazy drama/emotion and just want to fall asleep. There were all these different characters all going nuts about the money and it was just all very dramatic to the point of being ridiculous. If they had stuck to building the characters of antagonist and made the Franco/Hudson characters way smarter, then it would have been a better movie. Oh, and just got rid of the cop thing, altogether...that made it even more stupid and made the ending EVEN MORE unrealistic than it already was. I felt like I was watching a couple idiots with not enough connecting me to them emotionally to care, and just thinking "Why doesn't that guy just kill them right now?" Too over the top for its own good. They tried.

Whoever would do what the two leads did in this film are really out to lunch. I would have been scared at the beginning. It is presented interestingly, but in reality, the pursuit to regain what is lost by criminals might even go beyond what these antagonists did. Good action, fast, and violent. Too violent for kids, and does include nudity.

THERE WERE SOME REALLY BAD GUYS IN THIS MOVIE. TOO MUCH VIOLENCE FOR ME, BUT THIS IS WHAT CAN HAPPEN WHEN YOU GET INVOLVED WITH MOBSTERS THEIR DRUGS AND MONEY. TOM WILKINSON THE DETECTIVE TAKEN OFF THE CASE WAS A HERO WHEN HE PURSUED THE CRIMINALS ON HIS OWN. I THOUGHT FOR SURE HE DIED TWICE.

So Franco and Hudson wanted to holiday in the UK and we are left with this turkey.

It was entertaining at best. Not my favorite movie. The best part of course is at the very end. I found it watchable, so I gave it 2 1/2 stars.

Rather mediocre movie. The best part was that it was only an hour and a half long. The story was supposed to be serious, but not one of the characters in the movie proved to be very bright. I'm still not a James Franco fan after seeing this movie. His acting puts me to sleep.

A little far fetched but entertaining saga of the consequences of taking absurd risk(s).

Three stars might be a little generous.
