I'm surprised by the high scores given this movie by most IMDb folks. I'm not sure now if I saw the same movie as the one they commented on. I found the run time of 2:20 hours much too long. The plot included several side track sub-stories that were unneeded and most of all I was put off by a major flaw in the plot which I will not detail (to avoid spoiling it to those who still plan to watch it). Overall, the low rating given by Rotten Tomatoes was justified. Gerard Butler is not a great actor but a good one in action films. This one was a waste of his talents.

Gawd save us PLEEEEASE from writer/directors.
Ok, this ain't exactly a 'bad' movie but it's over-rated and typically writer/director self-indulgent, poorly edited, 30-minute too long, and it really should have been much better - and it could have been with some additional input and editing. --sigh--
Yeah, look at it with undemanding eyes or expectations and it's an average heist movie which aims to be 'gritty' through the addition of the stereotypical hard-drinking, hard-talking, hard-smoking, hard-womanising Gerard Butler. It's giving nothing away to say that the - uh oh - cop-married-to-his-job gets a divorce although that has nothing to do with any of the plot or character development.
Because the plot is trying so hard to be ''straight' you expect a twist. I'll admit my first idea (within 15 minutes) didn't pan out but my second did and it's really not so big a twist as all that and you'll probably twig as the movie progresses. Unless, as most of the reviewers here seem to be, you're coasting along in neutral with absolutely no sense of discernment.
There's nothing wrong with having a great, exciting, hard-hitting movie, with a twist - but this isn't quite it!
An highly entertaining action packed thriller that will play with your emotions on who to root for, the cops? Or the robbers? Hollywood loves to give us a good bank robbery movie each year, however this well scripting and edge your seat thriller should go down as the best action flick of the year (So far). My Score: 8/10
