A decent crime flick, but definitely one of Ayers weaker offerings unfortunately. I also don't get the outrage surrounding Shia LaBeouf's so called racist portrayal of a Jewish white kid who just so happened to grow up in South Central Los Angeles. I mean to me it really didn't seem all that different from how Christian Bale was portrayed in Harsh Times yet nobody complained about that from what I remember. I honestly think critics these days are either tired or just don't want to see these kinds of films anymore, because of the negative stereotypes which I can understand, but at the same time that's not enough for me to just completely dismiss a film either, especially if I can find other good qualities in it. The worst thing about IMO is easily how basic and generic it is, but LaBeouf gives a really good performance in it and the action was violent and stylish enough to keep my attention even if the story and characters were pretty lackluster.
