This was a really good heist movie. I'm curious how it got lost in the shuffle even with good reviews and performances. Yes, even from Wahlberg. I guess too many adult dramas get announced in December due to awards season...

There was some heavy-handedness I could've done without, but Michelle Williams and Christopher Plummer were very good.

I watched this last night. Overall, it's a so-so movie. The performances were excellent. Michelle and Chris stand out. But making this as a "heist" movie was a mistake. I was looking for more of a character study. And the material doesn't lend itself to the "heist" format anyway.
