Summary: An amazing coincidence
This movie was pretty exciting, what with all the car chases and all. Mark Wahlberg leads a crew of thieves out to steal their gold back from a traitor, but hey, if you've seen the trailer, you've seen the whole movie, so don't waste too much money on this flick, okay? I hate it when producers do that.

The really amazing thing for me, which made it all quite worthwhile, was that I just happened to be visiting Hollywood when I saw this movie, at the Mann's Chinese Theater, and key parts of movie take place in that neighborhood! I kid you not, there are scenes with traffic coming down Highland, around the corner to Hollywood, and right in front of the Mann's Chinese Theater. That was just too freaky for words. And there's also some really cool scenes involving motorcycles entering the new subway station at Hollywood & Highland as well. So, that was quite a treat. Had I saw the movie anywhere else, I wouldn't have liked it near as much.
