    Ok, first off, Big Ups to the DUMB DOUCHE NOZZLE who wrote this article!!! Argh, what the hell dude! Ya basically gave away the whole story to the movie!! I could punch you in the face right now! lol omg, you couldn't have left out the parts about the detective's brother pulling off the heist across the street and that Bank's character had a romantic involvement with Worthington's character??? Wow. Seriously what the hell is the matter with you man? Are you one of those people that after you see a film you tell other people who wanna see it the entire story? Cuz i could really see that. It wouldn't be that much of a stretch to imagine. Man i hope i forget about all this info by the time the movie comes out. But for now thanks a lot for ruining the movie for me!
