Description

In 1985, Gilbert Galvan Jr (Josh Duhamel), a charming career criminal, escapes from a US prison in Michigan and crosses the border into Canada where he assumes the identity Robert Whiteman. After falling in love with Andrea (Elisha Cuthbert), a caring social worker he can’t provide for, he turns to robbing banks and discovers that he’s exceptionally good at it. Under the guise of a security analyst, Robert begins flying around the country robbing multiple cities in a day, eventually catching the attention of national news outlets that dub him The Flying Bandit. Addicted to the rush and money that provides his double life, Robert eventually turns to loan shark and reputed gangster Tommy Kay (Mel Gibson) for bigger opportunities. But with Robert’s notoriety growing in record time, he is put into the direct sights of a ruthless detective (Nestor Carbonell) who will stop at nothing to bring him down.

    I love reading disappointment reviews for movies like this one (I haven’t watched it so I rated it in the middle-ish) because its obviously a VOD with washed up actors. You can spot these movies from a mile away and you get what you pay for. Primarily, you watch movies like this to get cheap laughs at actors phoning in performances for a lousy paycheck. C’mon man!

    Tacky and cheap production looks amateurish and hard to engage.
  • More than disappointing

    There’s just nothing there. The acting is OK. But it feels like a B grade documentary. Fell asleep twice. My dog even fell asleep. That never happens.
  • True Crime Thriller! Great Story!

    I really enjoyed this film. Knowing it’s all based on a true story makes you wonder “how the heck did this guy not get caught until his 59th robbery?”. And breaking out of jail and being smuggled into another country. Just WOW! The cast held up the story well. It was entertaining. I recommend.
  • Best!

    Honestly this was such a good movie. Sure you can find something similar, but the acting and storytelling is so well done. Mel Gibson is of course great and Josh Duhamel played his part wonderfully. Highly recommend this. Worth the buy.
