- Empire State
- Action / Drama
- Synopsis: After failing to get into the police academy, Chris Potamitis (Liam Hemsworth), settles for a security guard job with the EMPIRE STATE Armoured Truck Company. Chris makes the mistake of mentioning the company’s lax security to his best friend, Eddie (Michael Angarano), and is soon unwittingly drawn into an elaborate scheme to rob the abundant amounts of cash being stored there – resulting in the largest cash heist in U.S. History. As the stakes continue to rise, Chris and Eddie must outwit James Ransone (Dwayne Johnson), the veteran NYPD Detective that is hot on their trail, as well as the local crime bosses that want to know who pulled a job on their turf, or suffer the consequences.
My comments are as short as the plot in this movie. I am not the kind of person who switches off a movie half way, but this was one of those who actually made me want to wish the electricity would go out so I am forced to stop watching. It was very disappointing to watch a movie with the Rock and Liam Hemsworth that was this bad…the story was incomplete and the characters flawed. If you haven’t seen it, don’t bother.
