Story: The police force in Atlanta, Georgia is rife with crooked cops, among them Marcus Belmont (Mackie) and Franco Rodriguez (Collins). Along with external members, they're routinely blackmailed by the Russian mob to execute big heists, That is, until rookie Chris Allen (Affleck) joins the force and is paired up with Marcus. The dirty cops plan to kill Chris for various reasons. Will senior officer Jeffrey Allen (Harrelson) and Chris be able to foil the next big heist, and does Chris come out of it all alive?

Review: Hillcoat goes all out in his attempt to depict a city apparently rife with crime, where even the good guys cannot be trusted. Grimy realism, visceral action and even the proverbial gum-chewing, unshaven cop who speaks little but packs a big punch; it's all in here. Oh, and add to that more ingredients, such as the Russian mafia (Winslet plays henchwoman Irina admirably), a soundtrack that's good enough to listen to on its own, good cinematography, courtesy Nicolas Karakatsanis and an effective screenplay by newbie Matt Cook.

The bad guys collectively comprise Mike (Ejiofor), Marcus, Franco, Russell (Reedus) and his sibling Gabe (Paul). They're experts at carrying out meticulously-arranged, bold heists in supposedly secure facilities - and getting away with it too. Irina has them pull off a final heist - a task that the group decides will entail a 999 - police code for 'officer down' - as a diversion. Basically, Chris will have to be bumped off.Ejiofor), Marcus, Franco, Russell (Reedus) and his sibling Gabe (Paul).

Irina has them pull off a final heist - a task that the group decides will entail a 999 - police code for 'officer down' - as a diversion. Basically, Chris will have to be bumped off.

While Harrelson is the pot-puffing cop-with-conscience, the film's emotional core consists of Ejiofor and Mackie's performances and the moral questions that are constantly going through their minds like a ticker tape. Visual metaphors abound - most of the action happens after dark, where faces are bathed in eerie red light. And you're bound to notice an overhead shot of intertwining highways, representative of the complex dealings of the characters. Affleck is dialed-down but he's equally compelling. And yes, truth be told, the entire cast is a powerhouse of talent. Apart from an unnecessary profusion of subplots, you'll likely find this heist-thriller to be quite satisfying.
