After failing to get into the police academy, Chris Potamitis (Liam Hemsworth), settles for a security guard job with the Empire State Armored Truck Company. Chris makes the mistake of mentioning the company's lax security to his best friend, Eddie (Michael Angarano), and is soon unwittingly drawn into an elaborate scheme to rob the abundant amounts of cash being stored there - resulting in the largest cash heist in U.S. History. As the stakes continue to rise, Chris and Eddie must outwit James Ransone (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), the veteran NYPD Detective that is hot on their trail, as well as the local crime bosses that want to know who pulled a job on their turf, or suffer the consequences.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANS OF ROCK WILL LIKE IT 20 Mar 2014
Its good film, Rock is the rock and its got a good story.

I just find it hard to believe how rubbish the security was for such a large amount of money and also how easy the guy got through the roof with all that protection.

That aside its a good film on the whole.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming 23 Sep 2013
This film started out with so much promise. The eighties look appeared authentic with what sounded like Tavares playing in the background and the premise was good but it just never really went anywhere. The story is allegedly based on what was then the highest grossing burglary in US history carried out by a complete idiot and his nave buddy played by Liam Hemsworth who gets a job as a guard in the most sloppy security company in America. It plays like it is an accurate portrayal of what happened because it is so low key and ordinary that you begin to wish the director had spiced it up a bit. It takes ages to get off the ground then explodes like a damp squib.
Dwayne Johnson playing himself with a badge is probably the best thing in this film apart from the period setting. Emma Roberts looks nice in a wig but is hardly utilised. Michael Angarano as Hemsworth's sidekick Eddie who just can't keep his mouth shut is either a total ass or a brilliant actor because you will want to slap him after about ten minutes.
This is definitely a film to rent if you're a Rock or Hemsworth fan, otherwise give it a miss.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 23 May 2014
The main character on the cover is DJ. Well, in the film he just floats around not doing anything. Looks very menacing and turns up in all the right places.... and nothing happens. As for Liam H, a tall blond Australian pretending to be a part of the vertically challenged swarthy Greek family!! The rest is very humdrum and needs a kick up the backside

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor 20 April 2014
I hate to buck the trend but I was very disappointed by the film. Very very slow, obvious plot and just not engaging at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars WHERE'S THE MONEY? 1 Sep 2013
By The Movie Guy TOP 500 REVIEWER
Chris Potamitis (Liam Hemsworth) is a young man living in NYC in the late 70's. He manages to get a job as a security guard which involves large amounts of money, little security, and over whelming temptation. He lives in a neighborhood of Greeks, along with his loud mouth, foul mouth friend Eddie (Michael Angarano). He is the classic idiot side kick who messes everything up.

Eddie has big dreams for the money that Chris guards and desires to be a big shot, even though no one can stand him. Dwayne Johnson plays the investigating officer and comes in about half way through. His name as well as Emma Roberts are over billed for their actual roles. The film is based on an actual robbery, and like real crime, it is more akin to "dumb crook news" than a master criminal.

The film makes for an entertaining action drama.

Parental Guidance: Plenty of F-bombs. No sex or nudity.

Quite low budget, lacking in some much needed sub-Plots, possibly too true to its origins, looks like it was made as a vehicle to launch Liam Hemsworth but like his inept sidekicks and crooked acquaintances, it blunders along and eventually expires.

2.0 out of 5 stars Empire State 10 Jun 2014
Very disappointed I love Dwayne Johnson but this is not worth watching he's hardly in it! Very slow and boring, I got to the end and thought what was the point it didn't go anywhere
