Extremely average heist/spy thriller with very little character development. Has some decent chase scenes which elevate the film somewhat.

Former special forces soldiers and intelligence operatives—Spence (Sean Bean), Larry (Skipp Sudduth), Gregor (Stellan Skarsgård), Vincent (Jean Reno), and Sam (Robert De Niro) are tasked to steal a mysterious briefcase.
