A stylish, well-organized bank-robbery gang makes the mistake of staging one heist too many - and drawing the attention of a police detective ( Matt Dillon) determined to bring down their operation - in this fast-paced melodrama.

Idris Elba plays the ringleader of the criminals who also include Hayden Christensen, Paul Walker ("The Fast and the Furious"), Michael Ealy ("The Good Wife"), and music's Chris Brown and Tip " T.I." Harris. A highlight is a terrific chase sequence involving most of Los Angeles' means of transportation. DVD extras: audio commentary by cast and crew; music video. *** (PG-13: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
