Everyone seems to have something to hide and Mills manages to upset a fair few of them with his aggressive no nonsense way of questioning them. It's a tensely told tale that keeps it's secret till the climax on a church tower. Verdict....no need to feel guilty about watching this one.

This being a John Hillcoat movie it's packed with bad language and heavy doses of violence but for all of that it's an entertaining heist thriller. Verdict....they got an offer they couldn't refuse.
