Story: Luke Vaughn (Morgan) doesn't have the cash to pay for the cancer treatment that his little daughter has to undergo. And being a devoted dad, he is willing to go the distance in order to get the funds. This means teaming up with Cox (Bautista) to rob a casino owned by Pope (De Niro) that he used to work in. But predictably enough, things go awry and they have to hijack a bus in order to make their getaway from both a team of cops, led by Officer Kris (Carano) and Pope.

Review: Bus 657 (also titled as Heist in some countries) is a fairly fast paced cat-and-mouse chase involving the said casino thieves trying to outrun both the mob as well as the cops, who are in hot pursuit. Played out mostly on a bus containing a motley crew of hostages, the entire premise of the film is itself telegraphed early on, before the chase begins, and you do get an inkling of how most of the film will play out.

Vaughn is the good father who has turned to crime for apparently noble reasons while Pope is a sort of godfather whose role is admirably essayed by De Niro, his famous scowl firmly in place. But it's not like you haven't seen him play this kind of role before, to greater effect. Mann attempts to add an element of pathos to De Niro's character in a scene where he visits Sydney (Bosworth), his estranged daughter whose career couldn't be more different than his, with a confession and an offer that she most definitely refuses.

Bautista, who looks like he's genuinely having a very bad day, is the brawn but definitely not the brains of this operation. What is interesting is the friction between Vaughn and Cox even though it is often diluted by a script that could have been a notch better. Nonetheless, Morgan looks suitably harrowed, given his hard circumstances.

Working in this film's favor is the aforementioned brisk pace and the taut editing. It somehow adds to the sense of desperation and urgency that the lead pair feels. Overall, a passable action potboiler.
