Grant Bowler & Lennie James were the main characters in this heist-gone-bad flick; they're decent enough actors, but still upstaged by the presence of the underutilized Jean-Claude Van Damme. The biggest problem here was a muddy script. I didn't really care much about any of the characters - instead of building suspense it was sort of boring. I think there was a better movie here if less screen time was devoted to sideshow characters (the doctor, the local miner, the sheriff's assistant, the bartender, the teenage girl and her boyfriend). They added little to the heist/revenge plot; by the end of the movie it felt like their narratives trumped the main story.

Boring and very slow going. I did watch the entire movie and found it sleepy.

Nice cinematography, music and character studies in this recycled story of jailed team of robbers looking for the missing loot, only that the showdown was in a sweltering dying tiny desert town (Robbed Casino was the Rio, not Luxor in the movie?)
