Review

Our Score
This heist-gone-wrong movie may start with a bullet-strewn bang, but the action swiftly fizzles into a meandering tale about cops tracking the robbers who are eager to extract the location of hidden millions from a thief who has lost his memory (Matthew Modine). Sylvester Stallone barely goes through any motions at all as the dour detective with a permanent look of dyspepsia - a bad haircut on loan from Steven Seagal can do that. Thrillers involving amnesiac protagonists have proved intriguing diversions in the past (Payback, Cypher, Trance), but this drab example is merely forgettable.

Summary

After suffering a brain injury, the lone surviving thief of a botched bank heist is sprung from a high-security facility and given an experimental drug, which the authorities hope will rebuild his memory. However, he must also elude a detective and an FBI agent, as well as cope with the drug's side-effects in order to recover stolen cash. Director Brian A Miller's action thriller, starring Sylvester Stallone and Ryan Guzman.
