A very good movie

Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I’m a huge fan of Michael Mann’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though it is one of his more obscure movies, I was actually impressed by the damned thing and, in my opinion, it is easily one of his best directing efforts. Indeed, I always had a weak spot for heist features and this flick is, by far, ... read more

After having spent many years in prison, he has a very concrete picture of what he wants out of life--including a nice home, a wife, and kids. As soon as he is able to assemble the pieces of this collage, by means of his chosen profession, he inten ... (more)

“Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick but since I’m a huge fan of Michael Mann’s work, I was really eager to check it out. Eventually, even though it is one of his more obscure movies, I was actually impressed by the damned thing and, in my opinion, it is easily one of his best directing efforts. Indeed, I always had a weak spot for heist features and this flick is, by far, the best one I have ever seen. Right from the start, you get an amazing opening scene during which you have one of the most realistic heist I have ever seen in a movie. Apparently, the burglary tools used throughout the film were not props, but actual tools which were supplied by actual thieves who served as technical consultants on the film. Therefore, the whole thing felt really raw and pretty r” read more

"28.7 Michael Mannilta jälleen kerran oikein tiukka jännäri ja onnistunut tekele debyyttiohjaukseksi. Kuten muissakin miehen ohajauksissa, myös tässä tykästyin siihen, kuinka aidon näköisiä elokuvan ryöstökohtaukset ovat. Tuntuu kuin olisi itse paikan päällä tekemässä keikkoja. Öiset ajelut kaupungilla olivat myös mieleeni sekä todentuntuinen raakuus, jota ei vedetä ylimeneväksi lahtaamikseksi. Caan on ehkäpä elämänsä parhaimmassa roolissa, joskin miehen ura tuohon aik"

"18.2. DVD. Uusintakatselu. ***** - ****"

"18.2 DVD Rewatch - ***** - **** Ihan hyvää Mannin rikoselokuvaa edelleen, jota lasken pisteellä, koska tämä voisi olla kokonaisuudeltaan vielä huomattavasti tiukempikin tapaus. Rikosjuoni kiinnostaa ja Tangerine Dream säestää tehokkaasti, mutta Caanin ja Weldin romanssista ym. ei saa oikein mitään irti. Komea loppu pelastaa tässäkin jonkin verran. "

"12.06. DVD. Michael Mannin esikoisohjaus on harvinaisen hieno debyytiksi. James Caan on loistavassa vedossa, dialogi on hyvää, Tangerine Dreamin soundtrack on kultaa ja lopun toimintakohtaukset komeita. Erittäin hyvin toimiva rikosdraama."
