Synopsis by Daniel Gelb
Ex-soldiers Michael Atwood (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Russel Welch (Norman Reedus) lead an Atlanta criminal organization, which also includes Welch's troubled brother Gabe (Aaron Paul) and dirty cops Marcus Belmont (Anthony Mackie) and Jorge Rodriguez (Clifton Collins Jr.). The five heisters are contracted by the Russian-Israeli mob, headed by matriarch Irina Vlaslov (Kate Winslet), to pull off a dangerous job, and they decide to create the diversion of an "officer down" call as a cover for the robbery. Marcus' straight-arrow new partner Chris (Casey Affleck) is soon targeted as the mark for the shooting; meanwhile, Chris' uncle, Detective Jeffrey Allen (Woody Harrelson), works to foil the criminals. John Hillcoat directed this ensemble action thriller written by Matt Cook.
