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

Description: Frank is an expert professional safecracker, specializing in high-profile diamond jobs. 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 intends to retire and become a model citizen.

Miika's Movie Diary - 2018 (222 movies items)

"16.2, PC, rewatch Piti nostaa pisteitä yhdellä tähdellä. Tarinan eteneminen on joissain kohti vähän oudosti tahditettua, mutta elokuvan kylmällä värimaailmalla ja Tangerine Dreamin hienolla soundtrackilla luotu tunnelma (johon kolkko tarina ja Caanin tempperamenttinen, mutta samaistuttava antisankari sopivat hyvin) on erittäin siistiä katseltavaa."

"10.2. Kaksituntinen soljui rattoisasti murtovaras-Caanin ja muutaman kaljan parissa. 80-lukulainen Chicago näyttää hienolta ja Tangerine Dreamin soundtrack on munan kova. Manhuntteri keväämmällä uusintakatseluun."

"1st viewing, PC/TV 1 February 2016 Directed by: Michael Mann Odotin jostain syystä enemmän. Elokuva oli ylipitkä ja ennalta arvattava, täynnä rikoselokuvan kliseitä. Kuvaus oli miellyttävää. "
