This little movie has minimal budget written all over it, with virtually all the action taking place in a single location (a bank and the area around its vault), a short running time and decidedly B-grade talent in the acting and directing departments. Having said that, the material is presented in a suspenful way and there is no attempt to be 'clever', which makes it refreshing compared to more modern efforts. This movie wont be on anyones top 10 list, but its not a total waste either.
