Five US Special Forces veterans, led by Oscar Isaac, reunite to pull off the ultimate high-stakes heist in this muscular action movie.
Isaac’s wily military adviser tempts his former comrades – played by Ben Affleck, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund and Pedro Pascal – out of their unhappy civilian lives with the prospect of taking down a notorious South American drug kingpin and stealing his vast fortune.
Inevitably, the mission hits unforeseen snags, loyalties become strained and things turn sour…
Director JC Chandor gives the action suitable heft, but unfortunately the movie – originally conceived as a project for Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow – is formulaic. Watch it for the cast.
